Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Who needs enroll?

New students coming from other districts, students from within our district wanting to transfer to a different school, or preschoolers with prior approval from City of Tempe. Current students do NOT need to re-enroll to attend the same school they currently attend. They should automatically roll into the next grade at the same school.

If my child is going from fifth-grade to middle school do we need to enroll?

Only if you are applying for Open Enrollment to attend a school other than your "home" school (in your attendance area). If you are going to your "home" middle school, you are already enrolled for next year.

If my child is an open enrollment student attending a school outside our attendance area this year, do we need to complete another open enrollment form for next school year?

No, not if you are staying at the same school for next school year. If you are moving up to middle school or attending a different open enrollment school, you will have to complete a new open enrollment form.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please make sure to immediately notify your child's school office if you have any change in address or emergency contacts.
