NEW Student Registration During COVID-19

Register Online: You can electronically complete student enrollment forms and upload required documents through the K-12 online registration system (OLR). The system is secure and user-friendly, which allows the District to verify all student and parent/guardian demographics and health information for the new school year. Registration may be completed using a computer/laptop or a mobile device (smartphone, tablet, iPad). The OLR system will be available in nine languages: Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Portuguese, Albanian, French, Khmer, Russian, and Vietnamese. All applications received that indicate the student has an English Language Learning need will be handled exclusively by the Multilingual Assessment Center.

Register Over the Phone: You can contact the school directly to complete the registration process over the phone with the secretary. School secretaries will complete the online application on behalf of the parent/guardian based on the information provided.

Register In-Person: The Office of Student Enrollment and Placement will offer in-person registration services by appointment only for families unable to register online or by phone. In-person registration will be available twice a week from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm at the Education Center. An appointment is required, no walk-ins accepted.

Register by Paper/DropBox Service: The Office of Student Enrollment and Placement will accept and process paper applications. A secure drop box will be located in the lobby of the Education Center, and available for families to submit paper registrations during regular office hours, Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 4:30pm. Families will place the application as well as proof of address and immunization records into a manilla envelope that will be provided near the drop box location. The Office of Student Enrollment and Placement will work with families who do not submit all of the required information.
