Multilingual/New to US students: If you are registering a child who speaks a language other than English or who has moved to the US from another country, you must first go to the Multilingual Intake Center (even if the child is an English speaker), so that your child can be appropriately placed in their home school. The Multilingual Intake Center will be open beginning on August 20, 2018. See this information sheet about the hours of operation, what you need to bring with you and who must go to the Multilingual Intake Center to start the registration process.
Pre-K Registration: Regular Pre-K Registration has ended, but you can still request a late registration appointment. Please go to the Pre-School Program tab below for more information.
To save time, you can print out the Registration Form and the Health History Registration Form before you go.

Open Enrollment: Students are expected to attend the school for which they are assigned. Assignments are based on a student's home address. Parents may request permission to enroll their child at a different school if there are compelling reasons to do so.
Parents interested in obtaining such permission must complete an Open Enrollment Form and submit it to the appropriate Division Director.
The District considers each requests in terms of the rationale for the request, the availability of space at the requested school and the impact such a request might have on students or schools.
