Welcome to the San Carlos School District! We are excited to help guide you through the process of registering your child. 
The San Carlos School District includes eight TK-8th grade schools - Arundel, Brittan Acres, Heather & White Oaks Elementary Schools, Arroyo & Mariposa Upper Elementary Schools, and Central & Tierra Linda Middle Schools. In addition, we have fee-based, Early Learning Centers/Preschools on each elementary school campus. SCSD serves families residing in most neighborhoods of San Carlos.
The information on this page explains the process for registering all new incoming Transitional Kindergarten / Kindergarten - 8th Grade students. If you have questions about registration/enrollment or transfers, please see our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) | Registration/Enrollment & Transfers page or email us at [email protected].

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 no longer accept 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.

  • Preschool students currently enrolled in one of our SCSD preschools must still complete the registration process to be enrolled in TK or Kindergarten for next year. 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 a grade level based on their DOB.

Before starting your online registration, gather all required documents to upload during the registration process. 

New Student Priority Registration Period opens on Tuesday, January 9, 2024 and ends on Friday, February 9, 2024. 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 9, 2024 deadline will be placed on a space-available basis.
New families are required to create a PowerSchool Enrollment account and register students online. If you are a current SCSD family and are registering a new student you may log in to PowerSchool using your email or phone number to register.
Please be sure to choose the correct school year before beginning your registration.
Confirm you are registering for the 2024-2025 school year or you will have to start over.
