To Begin Registration...
Please visit our Online Registration Gateway. (<-- click link)
You will be directed to our Registration portal. You must complete the entire pre-registration process and then schedule an appointment to complete registration. You will be given a list of supporting documents to bring with you to your registration appointment (this list is also below). You must bring your supporting documents or you will be asked to return later with them.
Please Note – For ALL New Registrations – parents/guardians are considered a New User, please click the box for Registration Gateway to create your account and start the registration process. If you already have a student in the school district, the username and password for updating student information is different than the username and password for the Registration process. Please use the same username and password you used previously to register.
Also, please ensure that you select the correct school year in the Registration Portal. The system will default to the current school year; however, if you are registering for the next school year, please select "Next School Year" (the years will be indicated). This will then direct you to the appointment slots associated with the correct school year.
*If you have started the process and created an account, but did not finish pre-registration, please enter your Username and Password where indicated and click Login, you will be able to pick up where you left off.*
