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 have an opportunity 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.
New to ASD enrollment
Students who are new to the Anchorage School District, preschoolers and kindergartners need to be enrolled in person at the school they will attend. Visit the Welcome to ASD section for more information on how to enroll.
See the options below for an early enrollment opportunity for eligible families and in-person enrollment at schools the first week of August.
