    Pre-registrations are for new incoming students or students returning to the district grades K through 12 are subject to final approval and completion of all the requirements.  Please be sure that you download and complete the registration forms prior to arriving for your interview.


    All registrations are to be completed in person at the Student Registration Center. No appointment is necessary. You may come to the center at your earliest convenience during normal hours of operation for your interview process. Kindergarten students are asked come in during our Kindergarten Registration Drive (January 16, 2018 through March 23, 2018).  Upper grades registrations for incoming 18/19 students, grades 1-12, will be received at the center beginning April 2, 2018.  


    Students who speak another language at home will require an English Language Learner Screening at all grades level. Grades 6-8 will require STAR testing. 


    If the student requires testing, you will be provided with an appointment at the time of the registration interview. All testing is done on site at the center. 


    We look forward to serving you in the near future.
