Incoming Kindergarten Students
Many of our District #150 schools have a
site-based Kindergarten Round-Ups you can visit and attend in addition to the Kindergarten Transition Fair we held in April.
Please contact your home school or visit their website for more
information. This is an opportunity for you and your child to see the
school and Kindergarten rooms first hand.
Talk to your child’s teacher about the transition process from preschool to Kindergarten; if you have additional concerns.
New Students To The District Or To A New School
New student registration dates are set for primary/middle schools and high schools. New student registration packets can be picked up from a school at any time while a school secretary is working at the school (most return two weeks prior to the start of school). New student registration dates allow families to turn in their packet, proof of address, physical exam and immunization records and pay any fees.
Returning Students To The District
Online student registration can be completed through the online enrollment verification process starting August 1st by logging on to Skyward Family Access and clicking on the Enrollment Verification link. A school may request a current proof of address, if needed. Families can also visit the school during new student registration to speak to a school staff member regarding any questions the family may have. Families may also check the school's website for dates and times that a school computer lab may be available to receive guidance through the online verification process. The Peoria Public Library will also have computers available at its branches for parents to complete online enrollment.
