Registration for the 2019/2020
Registration for the 2019/2020 year will be available through the parent portal starting Monday, April 1, 2019.
If you do not have a parent portal account, you should have received an email on March 15 with instructions and a link to do so.
Beginning this year, the district is contracting with a third-party vendor to automatically verify student address information. If your residency is verified electronically, you will not need to submit any additional paperwork to certify that you live within the district’s boundaries. To verify residency, the vendor will use a parent’s name and address to crosscheck the information against electronic databases from other organizations, such as utility companies.
We anticipate most addresses will be verified electronically. If we cannot verify your address electronically, we will send you a letter detailing what additional information you will need to provide in order to register your child for the upcoming school year.
