Determining where to register is part of the the 5-step process outlined in General Registration Requirements (Grades 1 through 12) or Kindergarten Registration.

Register with one of our three centers if the following applies to you:

  • Kindergarten - Students registering after the beginning of the school who have a language other than or in addition to English on the Home Language Survey.
  • Grades 1st through 12th - Students who have a language other than or in addition to English on the Home Language Survey.

Depending on circumstances (foster care, homelessness, acceptable circumstances of legal guardianship, etc.) you will register at either the local school or a Student Registration Welcome Center. Please see Special Registration Situations. (See Home Instruction for option for home schooling your child.) 

At a Student Registration Welcome Center, professionals may assess your student's English language skill and/or educational level. These assessments can provide valuable information to the local school and support your child's instructional needs.
