Kindergarten Registration

Portland Public Schools Kindergarten enrollment application can now be completed online. Using the new Online Enrollment Application process, parents/guardians can provide their child's information electronically, and save time and paperwork. If your child has been attending one of Portland Public Schools' pre-k programs this past school year, you will not need to re-enroll. Your child will be entered into Kindergarten at your neighborhood school.

Kindergarten registration for the 2022-2023 school year will begin on Monday, February 28 - Friday, March 18 (and ongoing).

How to Register Online for the 2022-2023 School Year: 

Please click here to go to our Online Registration Portal.

If your child is currently enrolled at  Portland Public Schools in one of our PreKindergarten (4 year old) classrooms, it is not necessary for you to re-enroll in Kindergarten. Your child's enrollment will automatically "roll up" to your neighborhood Kindergarten elementary school according to your primary home address.

Once your registration is complete, you will need to go to your neighborhood school and present supporting documents to have your online registration completed and verified. 

You may also go to any of Portland's Public Schools to use our online registration kiosks.

If you need technical assistance navigating through the Online Registration please call your neighborhood school to speak to someone who can help.

For families who need assistance completing the application in English, please call the Multilingual and Multicultural Center at (207) 874-8135 for translation/interpretation services.

Helpful Hint:  Please be sure that your "pop-up" blocker has been turned off to use the Online Registration.

Documents Needed for Enrollment:

After completing the initial online application, you will need to send the following documents to the school to complete the enrollment process. For students whose families speak a language other than or in addition to English, please bring the documents to the Multilingual Family Welcome Center.

- Original proof of birth document (this document will be reviewed but not kept)
- Immunization records
- Proof of residency in Portland (electricity, cable, internet bill, or lease agreement/title of primary residence)
