Registration Forms and Process

  • Important Information

    Elementary school student registration for students new to the district and students new to a school for the 2019-2020 school year opens on January 8, 2019.

    Middle and high school students, please check with your school of residence for registration dates and information.

    You must register your child at your school of residence. If you do not know your school of residence, please refer to the District's School Finder.

    New Students to the District

    New students can register online. Follow the instructions provided in the online portal. Information about the student such as emergency contacts, medical and language information will be collected. Upon completion, please print a copy of the registration and complete steps 2 through 7 below. Enrollment cannot be finalized until ALL required documentation is presented at your school of residence.

    Returning Students

      1. Please call your school for registration and open enrollment hours. Contact information for your school of residence can be found through the school's webpage.
      2. When all forms are submitted to your school of residence in person (no mail or email accepted), you are pre-registered with Santa Clara Unified School District. However, proof of residency just prior to school starting in August will be necessary to ensure continued enrollment and to update your information in the district’s data systems.
      3. Once your registration has been submitted, you may be given a packet containing important additional information and forms to complete.
      4. The potential for new enrollments in some of the District’s schools may exceed the school’s capacity so families are encouraged to register their incoming student as early as possible. Students are placed based on their registration date.

    Summer Proof of Residency and Annual Information Update

    In order to ensure (1) continued enrollment for your student in 2019-2020, (2) that we have the latest information on all students, and (3) that students are placed in the correct school for their residence, a quick proof of residency and update of important information is necessary prior to the start of school. This process is for new students and students continuing in their current schools. For more information about proof of residency, please see section 2 above and read the 2019 proof of residency letter.

    Please see below a recap of the required forms for each grade span.

    * If you completed the online registration you do not need to fill out the registration form. A print out of your online registration, in addition to steps 2-7 above will suffice.
