Standard Registration Information

How do I find out what school my child is to attend based on our geographic location?
It is easy to find the school in your neighborhood using our "Find My School" locator tool, which features an interactive school attendance boundaries map.
Is it better to enroll in person or online?
This is a personal choice. Online enrollment may be completed at your convenience. For in-person enrollment, you need to contact your student’s school to schedule an enrollment appointment.
If your child is in middle school or high school, you will also need to contact the school to meet with a school counselor for course selection.
What materials do I need to register my child for school?
We compiled a list of required registration forms for new students on our enrollment page.
Is it possible to take a tour of the schools before applying or enrolling?
Yes, you may contact the building for a scheduled tour or check the school website for open house dates.
Who do I contact if I have enrollment questions?
Parents/legal guardians should contact the appropriate school for enrollment/registration questions.

Nonresident and School Choice Registration Information

If I live outside of the school district, how can I apply?
If you live outside of the MSDWT attendance boundaries, you may still apply to attend as a nonresident family by completing a Nonresident application.
If I move outside of the school district during the school year but want to stay in WTS, can I do that? How?
If you move during the school year, your child may continue through the end of the current semester as long as your student is in good standing. You should complete a nonresident application as soon as you have a signed lease or purchase agreement for the second semester and the following school year.
If I missed the application deadline, can I still apply?
We have deadlines so we can try to accommodate applicants’ requests, but we realize there are circumstances where families may not be able to predict their situation for a recent move or other life change. If you missed the deadline, please email the appropriate grade-level contact and state the reason for your special request.

If my child is approved as a nonresident, do I have to reapply every year? Why?
Yes, nonresident status is only for one school year. Applicants must reapply each year and adhere to the requirements of remaining in “good standing.” Applications are reviewed annually to ensure attendance and discipline guidelines are followed.
If my child is approved for In District Limited-Choice, do I have to reapply every year? Why?
IDLC student application approval is good for the length of the current school level (K-5 for Elementary and 6-8 for Middle School) as long as the student remains in good standing.
