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, we can provide access for registration.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 Engagment office 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 the Parent Assistance Center at (502) 485-6250 or send an email to email@example.com.
Access to a Computer for Registration
Computers are available at the JCPS Registration Site, which is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Lam Building (4309 Bishop Lane).
The English as a Second Language (ESL) Office (1325 Bluegrass Avenue) serves families who need help with English. Contact the ESL Office at (502) 485-3623 to make an appointment.
