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.
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 provide proof of address to a JCPS school or registration site or submit it online.
The proof of address may be one of the following and must be dated within the last 30 days:
- A gas/electric or water bill
- A lease including signature page
- A closing statement including signature page
- 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 Office of Access and Opportunity can be reached at (502) 485-3650 to provide assistance with registering your child for school if you are currently experiencing homelessness.
For more information on the registration process, call Student Assignment at (502) 485-6250 or send an email to JCPSSchoolChoice@jefferson.kyschools.us.
