• Welcome to School District U-46
    New Family Registration Guide

    Are you new to the district for the 2024-25 school year?

    All students must be registered following these two steps:
    Please read all the information before you start your online application.

    STEP 1 - Online Registration using the New Family Kiosk (see link and details below).  All of your students will be registered on the same application. 
    Note: if you are new for the remainder of the 2023-24 school year, you will register using the 2024-25 application, which will be good for both years. 

    STEP 2 - Contact your school to provide your application number, required documentation and forms or changes to household information.

  • Step 1
    Online registration for new families 

    New Family Kiosk 

    • Click on the above link if you do not have students currently enrolled in School District U-46 or if your students previously attended prior to the current school year. 
    • You will be registering ALL of your children you wish to enroll in School District U-46 (PK-high school) at the same time, including any student that you would like to have screened for our preschool program*. 
    • If you are registering for the remainder of the 2023-24 school year, your 2024-25 application will be good for both years.  
    • When you enter the application site you will have the opportunity to start a new application, or return to one that you have already begun.

    Please use one application. All of your children should be on the SAME application, no matter what U-46 school or program they will attend.

    You will then be provided with your application number as you enter the application. Please write this number down for future reference. 
    When you have completed all sections of the application, use the red submit button, and contact your school. 

  • Step 2  
    When contacting your school

    Be prepared to provide the following:

    • Student’s Birth Certificate
    • Required forms (see the Printable Registration Forms section below) 
    • Proof of Residency from Category A + B as listed on the Proof of Custody and Residency form
    • Physical and Immunization updates will be due prior to the first day of school
    • Consent for Release of Records from previous school (1st grade and above only)
    • Need assistance with registration

    The school cannot refuse to admit or enroll a student because that student fails to present his/her student permanent or temporary records from a school attended previously.  

    What school will my child attend?
    Students are assigned to schools based on their home address.
