Online registration for returning students

Returning students can be registered May 4 - 29 and July 22 - Aug. 7 through Zangle ParentConnection for the 2015-16 school year. Skip the lines and register your child(ren) from the comfort of your own home. Your child is eligible if returning to the same school, or continuing on to his/her neighborhood middle or high school. New-to-district students or students moving over the summer will need to register in-person at their school during districtwide registration in August.


Parents of middle and high school students can register online to save time, but students will still have an opportunity to visit their school to pick up class schedules, locker combinations and parking permits, and to get ID photos taken.


Log into Zangle ParentConnection between May 4 - 29 and July 22 - Aug. 7
