New to the District?
How to Enroll
Students who are new to the district may complete their initial registration on the JCPS Web site (www.jefferson.kyschools.us) from any computer with Internet access, or at any JCPS school, or at the Lam Building (4309 Bishop Lane).
Computers are available at JCPS registration sites, which are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Lam Building (4309 Bishop Lane) and the English as a Second Language (ESL) Office (1325 Bluegrass Avenue) for families needing assistance with English. Additional registration opportunities, including a schedule of stops for the bus that serves as the JCPS Mobile Student Registration Site, are availble at https://webapps.jefferson.kyschools.us/StudentAssignment/LaunchPage.aspx. (If you don’t have Internet access, call (502) 485-6250 for the latest information.)
Registration & Application Process
For students new to JCPS, there are three steps to the application process:
- Complete the Online Registration. In this step the parent provides basic information about the student and the family—name, address, birthdates, etc.
- Provide proof of residence in Jefferson County. You may submit this electronically or bring it to a registration site or school.*
- After your address has been verified, you will complete an elementary cluster application (required for an elementary school assignment) or a magnet application for elementary, middle or high school.
*You may register your child for school regardless of immigration status and/or a fixed, regular and adequate night-time residence. If a student lacks a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence or has temporary living arrangement because of an economic hardship; temporary foster care placement; or is residing in a shelter, with a family member, or in a hotel, the student may qualify for further educational assistance through the Office of Homeless Education. To access services, you call the Homeless Education program at 485-3650 or email email@example.com
Current JCPS students
Current JCPS students may go directly to the application. An application is only required for elementary students who are entering kindergarten for the first time, elementary students who have moved, or students who are applying for a magnet school or program.
