Elementary Enrollment K-5
Student Assignment Specialists at the Welcome Center work with families to
enroll all new and returning elementary students to RPS
205 under the Elementary School Assignment Plan. Children are assigned to schools based upon zones (residential address of their parent/guardian). Click here to look up your zone school.
Student Assignment Specialists
enroll the children into their zone school and process applicable transportation assignments. After
enrollment the parent/guardian must go the assigned school to
register the student, receive a classroom assignment and supply lists, and
pay fees/pagar quotas. Children who are offered placement in any RPS 205 Special Programs in the elementary schools are also
enrolled and/or assigned through the Welcome Center.
Elementary Bilingual Enrollment
Children who regularly hear or speak a language other than English must complete a language assessment by a licensed specialist in the Welcome Center. After the assessment, the specialist will present all enrollment options to the student’s guardian.
Special Education Enrollment
A copy of the IEP (Individualized Education Program) for a new or returning elementary student who receives Special Education Services will be sent to the Executive Director of Special Education for determination of eligibility, school placement and special transportation, if required. If the parent or guardian has a copy of the student's IEP paperwork or a copy of a student's 504 Plan, bring them when
enrolling the student.
Students who receive Special Education services can be served at any RPS 205 elementary school. Students who receive self-contained Special Education services are assigned to a school where their specific eligibility needs can be met. Each elementary school has been assigned a Special Education supervisor to assist parents with Special Education concerns.
Transportation is available for identified day care facilities assigned to an elementary school. The day care facility must meet
Transportation Department eligibility. Click here for a list of day cares.
Busing will continue to conform to state law, which requires free transportation for students living more than 1.5 miles from their assigned school. Follow this link to visit the RPS 205 Transportation page.
