School Registration

School Registration is for students not currently enrolled in a NVUSD school.

School Registration October-December and Late School Registration January-August 

School Registration is for new kindergarten students, new transitional kindergarten students, and all students not currently enrolled in a NVUSD school, either in-person or virtual. School Registration is also for students who may have previously attended NVUSD, withdrew from NVUSD, and are now returning to NVUSD.

Age requirement for new students for Fall: To be enrolled in kindergarten, students must turn 5 years old on or before September TK blocks1, 2021. Children turning 5 after September 1 may be eligible for Transitional Kindergarten

How does a family complete registration? You will first need to create an online enrollment account using your email address or mobile phone number. The system will ask for your contact information and student health information, as well as for you to upload specific documents. A confirmation message via email or text message will be sent to the online enrollment user account to confirm completion of registration.

What documents are required for new registration and will be requested for upload into the online enrollment account? Please refer to Documents Required for Registration on this page to ensure all documents are available for upload at the time of creating and completing enrollment. 

What if a family does not have immunization records to upload at the time of new registration? A parent/guardian may complete the registration and provide immunization records prior to the student attending the first day of school. Immunization Records are required for the following: Polio, DTP, Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR), Varicella (Chicken Pox), and Hepatitis B.

Why is completing a lunch application during registration for the Free and Reduced Price Meal Program (FRPM) important? Many parents are unaware of its importance, whether or not they qualify for free or reduced price meals as the FRPM actually affects a variety of areas in addition to school meals, including school funding, instrument rentals,  internet access, college application fees and SAT exam fees. Even if a child doesn't plan to eat school lunches, it is important for all families to fill out the FRPM application to ensure our schools and families receive the available resources. The application and more information is available at

Transfer Request

Intra-district Information

If a family has a change of address, but the new address does not change a school placement, is it necessary to complete a transfer request? No, simply email the school and the school will assist the family. 

If a family has a change of address, and the new address changes the school placement for the current school attending, yet the family wants to remain at the school until either 5th, 8th, or 12th grades, is it necessary to complete a transfer request? No, simply email or contact the school and the school will assist the family.

If a family has a change of address, and the new address changes the school placement and the family requests to (immediately or at the end of the school year) move the student to the new resident school, is it necessary to complete a transfer request? Yes, complete a transfer at online enrollment account.

Inter-district Information

How does a family, living outside of the NVUSD attendance area, request to attend a NVUSD school? Please create an online enrollment account to complete an inter-district application. We encourage you to contact NVUSD for assistance.  

What is needed to complete an inter-district application? Families will need to provide proof of release from their resident district on an Inter-District Transfer Application and Agreement form. 

If an inter-district transfer request is approved, how does a parent/guardian complete registration for their student? The parent/guardian will access their online enrollment account to complete registration.
