Enrollment Process

For the purposes of this section, "parent" means either biological parent or guardian. Only a parent or guardian, with supporting documentation, can register a student.

Parents wishing to register/enroll a new student with the Palo Alto Unified School District: find the section below that corresponds to the school year desired (current 2020-2021 school year, or 2021-2022 school year which starts in the second week of August 2021), and follow the steps listed in that section. (Note: this process is to register new, or returning, students; currently-enrolled students are re-registered via the Annual Data Update process, instructions for which parents will receive an email in May of each year.)

NOTE: Registrations are accepted only for current residents. Future residents can register two weeks prior to the move-in date.
