    The Online Registration process should take approximately 20 minutes per student. It is recommended to collect the following information prior to beginning the online registration process so you can easily upload them in the appropriate places. If you are unable to complete the registration all at one time, you can save your progress and return to finish. The age requirement for Kindergarten entrance is age 5 by July 31st. 

    Documents needed:

    *Students in transition or temporary housing are not required to submit documentation in order to enroll in school as defined in the McKinney-Vento act. 

    Please remember that only the parent that initiates the online registration process can make changes. You will need an email address to access online registration. If you don't have an email, click here to create one.
