Registration for 2018-19 School Year

Portland Public Schools enrollment is now open for the 2018-19 school year. Students in grades 1 through 12 can now enroll online using the new Online Enrollment Application process. Parents/Guardians can provide their child's information electronically, and save time and paperwork. 


How to register online:

You may click here to enter our Online Registration Portal to enroll your grade 1-12 student.  You may also choose to go to your neighborhood school and use the Kiosk to enter your Online Registration.

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 (207) 874-8237 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.

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