All students in kindergarten through grade twelve who have not previously attended a JCPS school need to register online. Students must be registered before they can apply to JCPS schools.

Registration Process

Step 1: Register Online

You must complete registration online. The online system will walk you through the process, but if you don't have a computer, contact Student Assignment at (502) 485-6250.

Step 2: Provide Proof of Address

After you register online, you'll need to take proof of address to a JCPS school or registration site, or you may email it to

The proof of address may be one of the following:

  • A gas/electric or water bill issued within the last three months
  • A lease
  • A house contract
  • A paycheck or paycheck stub
  • 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 somewhere else must provide proof of residence in Jefferson County before registering.

Important: You may register your child for school regardless of immigration status and/or a fixed, regular, and adequate night-time residence. Our Student Equity and Community Engagement office can be reached at (502) 485-3650 to provide assistance with registering your child for school if you are currently experiencing homelessness.
