Should I Complete NEW or RETURNING Student Registration?

  • New Student Registration

    2022-2023 New Student Registration

    The 2022-2023 New Student Registration form is for students who have not been enrolled at any school in Jefferson County during the 2021-2022 school year. Students entering kindergarten for the first time in Jefferson County and any other K-12 students joining us from a different school district should complete the New Student Registration form online. Parents of JEFCOED pre-k students who will move up to kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year will also need to complete New Student Registration.

    2021-2022 New Student Registration

    Parents of students coming to Jefferson County Schools for the remainder of the 2021-2022 school year who were not enrolled in any Jefferson County school at the end of the 2020-2021 school year will need to complete the 2021-2022 New Student Registration online.

    Returning Student Registration

    Returning Student Registration is not currently open; it will open at a later date and information will be shared here.

    Parents whose students are currently enrolled in a Jefferson County school for the 2021-2022 school year will complete Returning Student Registration. Students are considered to be “returning” even if they are moving up to the next grade level at a different school campus or if they are transferring to a different Jefferson County school. The exception to this is if your child is currently enrolled in a Jefferson County pre-k and will be moving up to kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year, you will need to complete New Student Registration online as an entering, first time kindergartener. 

    Pre-Kindergarten Registration

    Pre-k registration is handled by the local school. If your child is enrolling in a Jefferson County pre-k, you will not complete registration online.
