The initial application period for enrollment in Jefferson County Public Schools for the 2018-19 school year has opened and will continue through Dec. 15. 

All children entering kindergarten, elementary students who wish to apply to optional/magnet program or school and students who are entering or currently in middle or high school who wish to apply to an optional/magnet program will need to submit an application.

In addition, students for whom an application was previously submitted but whose family has since moved (thus creating a need to resubmit using the new address) and any student entering JCPS for the first time will also need to apply. 

You do not need to apply if your child is continuing at the same school as last year, and you have not moved OR if your child is going into middle or high school, and you want him or her to go to the school that's assigned to your home address (this is called your "resides school").

Families should register by visiting the JCPS website and checking out our "Before you get started" page and then the "registration and application" page.

Applications can also be submitted at the JCPS Parent Assistance Center, located at 4309 Bishop Lane.

For the first time, the district has produced two-minute welcome videos for parents and students to learn more about each of our elementary, middle and high schools.

Each of the videos can be found on the school’s profile pages or here: JCPS Elementary SchoolsJCPS Middle Schools and JCPS High Schools

Additionally, the JCPS Mobile Registration Bus will hit the road on Nov. 6 in an effort to help families register for the 2018-19 school year. The bus will be at 19 locations through Dec. 14. For questions, call the JCPS Parent Assistance Center at 502-485-6250.

The district will send letters informing them of their child’s assignment around April 1, 2018.

The first day of school for the 2018-19 year in JCPS is Aug. 15, 2018.
