Back to school

2014-15 school year

The first day of school for 2014-15 for grades 2-12 is Aug. 20, 2014. Kindergarten and first grade begins a week later on Aug. 27, 2014. All students must register (returning students) or enroll (new to ASD, including kindergarten) before the beginning of the school year. Review the options below for the choice that best fits your family's needs. And don't forget to check with Camp Fire, 21st Century Community Learning Centers and other before- and after-school programs that are open for registration now.


Online registration for returning students

Returning students can be registered online July 7 - Aug. 8 through Zangle ParentConnection for the 2014-15 school year. Your child is eligible if returning to the same school, or continuing on to his/her neighborhood middle or high school. If your family has moved, or your child did not attend an ASD school last year, you will need to register in person.


Parents of middle and high school students can register online to save time but students will still need to visit their school Aug. 4-7 to pick up class schedules, locker combinations, parking permits and get ID photos taken.


Log in to your Zangle ParentConnection account July 7-Aug. 8 to register online.
