If your student is currently enrolled in the Portland Public Schools, it is not necessary for you to re-enroll for the next school year. Your student's enrollment will automatically "roll up" to their next grade and school according to your primary home address.

After completing the initial online application, you will need to bring to the school the following documents 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 at Central Office.)
- Original Proof of birth document (This document will be reviewed but not kept)
- Immunization records
- Proof of residency in Portland (This can be a utility bill such as an electricity bill, or a cable or internet bill or lease agreement/title of primary residence)
