Enrolling a New Student

Please follow these three steps when enrolling your child into the District.

Step 1: Address Verification at the Welcome Center           

Step 2: Enrolling Online

(Disclaimer: Once online enrollment is complete, you will need to go to the Pre-Enrollment Lab at the Welcome Center Room 112 for final review before heading to the school site.)

Step 3: Finalizing Enrollment at your School Site

(Parent/Guardian must bring supporting documents (listed in Step 2) to your school of attendance where ENROLLMENT IS COMPLETED. Some schools may have additional documents to complete.)

Please note that the enrollment process is not complete until your student's information and supporting documentation has been reviewed at the school and the entire enrollment process is deemed to be complete and acceptable.

Tips for Successful Enrollment:

  • Have all documentation ready or you may be asked to return with all required documentation.
  • Our offices close at 3 pm, the average process time takes about 30 minutes (not including wait time) and depending on the number of children being enrolled.
  • Our busiest times are during lunch time, please expect longer wait times and we thank you for your patience.
  • Please expect a delay in response to messages as we are attending to new students.
