How to Register for the 2022-2023 (NEXT) School Year
STEP ONE - Review Key Dates
STEP TWO - Verify Grade Level Eligibility
- Transitional Kindergarten (TK) - if they have reached 5 years of age on or between September 2, 2022 – February 2, 2023. 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, 2022.
- Students who do not turn 5 by February 2, 2023 are not eligible to enter Kindergarten or TK for the 2022-23 school year.
- TK students currently enrolled in SCSD do not need to register for Kindergarten as they are already enrolled in our District and will be automatically enrolled in Kindergarten.
- Preschool students currently enrolled in SCSD must still complete the registration process to be enrolled in TK or Kindergarten. If your child is currently enrolled in one of our San Carlos Preschool classes, they are not yet a matriculated student and are required to register for TK/Kindergarten.
- Grades 1-8: Will be placed in the grade following the last one they attended, or according to their age if it is their first time attending public school in the United States.
STEP THREE - Verify Residency
STEP FOUR - Gather Required Registration Documents
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.
