Registration for the 2024-25 School Year is Now Open!

January 30, 2024

The year ahead brings many new and exciting initiatives to District 15! One such something new is that this is the first year we will offer FULL-DAY KINDERGARTEN for every student. Additionally, many of our schools are undergoing construction which will be completed for the upcoming school year, AND our 6th graders will join their adolescent peers in our newly restructured middle schools.

The first day of school for the 2024-2025 school year is Thursday, September 5 for grades 1-8 and Friday, September 6 for kindergarten and early childhood students.

Registration is open

Registration for the 2024-25 school year is now open!

Please visit our registration page to begin registering your child(ren) for school. Doing so helps us solidify staffing for our schools, allows your child(ren) to be placed on a class list, and allows your child(ren) to ride a bus to and from school. Registration MUST be completed and student fees must be paid by July 1, 2024. With close to 12,000 students to place in a classroom and on bus routes, we ask that you please do your part and register on or before July 1.

Registration

  1. Register Online: Registration is the first step in getting ready for the upcoming school year but is not the only step in the process. After you register your child online you also need to complete steps 2-4 listed below.

  2. Provide Required Documents: Our registration webpage outlines the documents you must provide to complete registration.

  3. Provide Proof of Residency (Living Situation): New families to the district, kindergarten students, families with a lease, and families that were flagged by our third-party residency verification system are required to provide proof of residency (living situation) to complete the registration process. Our residency webpage outlines the documents you must provide to prove residency (living situation). Questions? Please contact your school office.

  4. Pay Student Fees: Our student fee webpage outlines the District’s student fee structure and the three ways to pay fees. Information regarding fee waivers for families in need can be found on our website.

Again, all returning students MUST be registered by July 1, 2024, or they will be unenrolled from CCSD15. Families who have not completed their registration requirements will not receive a classroom assignment and will not be placed on a bus route. Families that do not complete the registration by July 1, 2024, should contact their school to re-enroll their child(ren).

NEW! Map My School Tool

District 15 is excited to share its new Map My School tool, which allows families to type in their home address to see where their house is on the updated boundary map, showing their “home school” assignment. (A “home school” is the family’s school assignment based on their home address.) We apologize for any intermittent issues with the tool as a large amount of families tried to access it at the same time.

*Please keep in mind that the Map My Schools tool may not reflect school assignments due to programmatic placement (special education and EL) as the Map My School tool shows a student’s home school assignment based on their address.

To view the full list of schools by bus tier, along with the programmatic placement at each school, please view our Boundaries/School Assignment Plan webpage.
