Parents Guide to Online Enrollment
Does your student show listed at an incorrect school on ParentVUE due to a change of home address? Online enrollment can be completed regardless of whether the student shows at the correct school. After completion of online enrollment, please contact the school staff at your child’s new school. Upon presentation of proof of address, the school staff will change your child’s school on the district's system.
Proof of Address – During online enrollment, parents can upload documents that verify home address or bring them to their child's school. This could include a rental receipt, lease agreement, gas/electric bill or a mortgage payment stub.
