Students are enrolled in schools in order of Registration Completion date. The Registration Completion date is established when all original documents are provided by current residents in person to the Registration Services office, and verified by the Registration Services office. Please note that if you are not a current resident at the time of registration, but have documentation showing residency at a future date, your Registration Date will be time and date stamped based on the date that you become a resident. For a complete list of requirements that determines a registration is complete, visit our Registration Requirements web page.
Students who change their legal residence during the year, and thus change their school attendance area, may elect to remain in the school which they have been attending for the completion of the current school year.
Contact the Registration Services office (RegistrationServices@pausd.org). We will give you a form for your contractor to complete and submit to the Registration Services office. Requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Overflowed students have priority over new registrations to the neighborhood school. If you wish to request that your child remain at the overflow school permanently, complete an Intra-District Transfer form and submit it to the Registration Services office.
Middle & High Schools
Overflowed students remain at the overflow school until the end of the first semester. If space becomes available at your neighborhood school for second semester, students can choose to remain at the overflow school by completing an Intra-District Transfer (submit to the Registration Services office), or choose to change to the neighborhood school. Middle school students advancing to 9th grade will be assigned to the neighborhood high school.
