What do I need to register a child for school?

  • The Office of Student Placement & Equity would like to provide all parents and guardians with an understanding of the registration and enrollment process at the Rochester City School District.

    Before registering, please view our

  • Registration Forms
    You will need to fill out 6 registration-related forms that are now combined into one fillable form packet. You may want to print out this fillable form packet in your primary language and fill them out at home to save time during registration. If you do, please bring  or send your completed forms when you register your child for school. | Download Registration Form Packet >

    If you are participating in a Schools of Choice process, such as for entering kindergartners, you will be asked to fill out an additional form identifying your choices when you come in. Some of the forms only ask you to fill out one or two lines and provide a signature. If any of the forms seem to be difficult or confusing, we are happy to help you. | More information about the School of Choice Process >
