How to Enroll

Students who are new to the district need to complete their initial registration on the JCPS Web site (www.jefferson.kyschools.us) from any computer with Internet access.

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://apps.jefferson.kyschools.us/StudentAssignment/LaunchPage.aspx. (If you don’t have Internet access, call (502) 485-6250 for the latest information.)

Overview of the registration process:

  • Go to www.jefferson.kyschools.us , and click the green Register & Apply button in the upper-left corner on the homepage.
  • The online system will walk you through the registration process. At one point, it will ask for information on the parent/guardian who is completing the registration. After you click Save Registration, you’ll see a confirmation number. Write it down because you’ll be able to use it later to verify your identity.
  • After you’ve completed all of the questions, you may print a copy of the record you’ve created.
  • You then will need to take proof of address to a JCPS school or registration site, or you may scan your proof of address and e-mail it to AddressVerification@Jefferson.kyschools.us.

The proof of address may be a gas/electric or water bill issued within the last three months, a lease, a house contract, a paycheck or paycheck stub, or a Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or other government benefits letter that has your name and address on it.

Students whose parents are moving into Jefferson County from another county or another state must provide proof of residence in Jefferson County before registering.

For more information, call the Parent Assistance Center at (502) 485-6250 or send an e-mail to AddressVerification@Jefferson.kyschools.us.

Note: You may register your child for school regardless of immigration status and/or a fixed, regular, and adequate night-time residence.
