New student registration image

Welcome to the San Carlos School District! We are excited to help guide you through the process of registering your child. The information on this page explains the process for registering all new incoming Transitional Kindergarten/Kindergarten - 8th Grade students.

The New Student Priority Registration Period is January 10 - February 10, 2023. We strongly recommend families register during this timeframe. All completed registrations received during the Priority Registration Period will receive priority into their home school if space is available.
Students registering AFTER the February 10, 2023 deadline will be placed on a space-available basis.
See our Key Dates for Registration & Transfers page for more information on upcoming registration events and deadlines.
For the 2023-24 school year, students are eligible to enter the following grade levels based on their birthdate:
  • Transitional Kindergarten (TK) - if they have reached 5 years of age on or between September 2, 2023 – April 2, 2024. Learn more about our TK program by visiting our Transitional Kindergarten page.
  • Kindergarten - if they have reached 5 years of age on or before September 1, 2023.
Please Note:
  • Students are not eligible to enter Kindergarten or TK for the 2023-24 school year if they are not 5 years old by April 2, 2024. They will be eligible to enroll the following school year.
  • Preschool students currently enrolled in one of our SCSD preschools must still complete the registration process to be enrolled in TK or Kindergarten. If your child is currently enrolled in one of our SCSD preschool classes, they are not yet a matriculated student and are required to register for TK/Kindergarten.
  • TK students currently enrolled in SCSD do not need to re-register for Kindergarten as they are already enrolled in our District and will be automatically enrolled in Kindergarten.
  • New students entering grades 1-8: Will be placed in the grade following the last grade-level they attended, or according to their age if it is their first time attending public school in the United States.
The San Carlos School District is open to all age-eligible students who live within the boundaries of the San Carlos School District. Please note that the school district boundaries are not identical to the civic boundaries of the City of San Carlos — please see our School Boundaries page to verify your address and find your assigned school.
We are no longer accepting registration for students who reside outside of the SCSD boundaries. If you are interested in transferring into SCSD from another school district, please see our Transfer Requests page for more information on the Interdistrict (Out-of-District) Transfer process. Employees and siblings of concurrently enrolled students will be given enrollment priority once the transfer is approved.

Before starting your online registration, gather all required documents to upload during the registration process. Incomplete student registration packets will not be processed and may delay your enrollment.

All completed registrations received during the Priority Registration Period (Jan 10 - Feb 10, 2023) will receive priority into their home school if space is available. Students registering after the Feb 10, 2023 deadline will be placed on a space-available basis.
  • After you have completed your pre-registration, schools will review your information and contact you if needed.
  • A second email with additional instructions and access to complete the online registration process in PowerSchool (InfoSnap) will be sent to you in the Spring. Additional health forms due after registration should be submitted to your school secretary.
