Enrollment/Registration Process

Registration is available to families whose child meet the residency and age requirements.
 

Registration Periods

There are two registration periods for enrolling your student in Saratoga USD:
  • Regular Registration: March

    The Regular Registration period is for families enrolling for the next academic school year and can provide a COMPLETE Preregistration Packet and ALL requested documents as listed in the packet.  There are no exceptions for incomplete registration documents during the Regular Registration period..

    All students registering in March are treated equally in terms of elementary school placement. 

    Currently enrolled families with an incoming sibling must register in the Regular Registration Period in order to have priority placement at the same school.

  • Conditional Registration: Mid April (after the Spring Recess) and onwards

    Families may enroll their students conditionally for the next academic school year if they have just moved into the school district or are in process of moving (must provide escrow papers, grant deed, property tax bill, or signed lease valid for the next school year).  Families must provide ALL requested student documents and partial proofs of residency as listed in the Preregistration Packet.  Families will be given 60 days to bring in any missing proofs of residency.

    K-5 students registering at this time are placed first-come-first-served in remaining spots at our three schools.  SUSD does not "overflow" students to neighboring districts. As long as your child is a resident of the district she/he is guaranteed a spot in our schools, but for TK/K-5 it may or may not be your first or second choice of school depending on space available per site.

Registration for the current school year is ongoing.

Families just moving into the district and enrolling for the current school year must provide ALL required student documents and partial proofs of residency as listed in the Preregistration Packet, including a signed lease for the current school year or escrow/purchase contract.  Families will be given 60 days to bring in remaining proofs of residency.
