Welcome to Columbus School District! Thank you for registering your student. We do all of our registration online using the links below.
REGISTRATION APPLICATION PERIOD

- When starting the application, if you do not see the window pop up, check to see if it was blocked. You may be required to turn off your pop up blocker in your web browser.
- Once you have started registration, there are links to forms and documents. When you click on them, they will open in a new window. To get back to the registration page, please minimize the window that appeared. Please do NOT log back in, this will cause you to restart the registration. The current one will be active in the background.
- If you are a 4K parent who registered your student in the spring, you should register as a returning parent.
- After you complete registration you can log back into the portal and pay your fees. Fees can also be paid at the school offices via cash, check, or credit card. There are step by step guides listed below for how to complete these steps.
The following forms must be filled out by both new and existing parents.
The following will need to be printed and filled in:

This information will allow us to create accounts for your children in our computer system.

We will need to view your student's birth certificate(s), and your proof of residency. Accepted documents for proof of residency consist of a deed, building permit, rental agreement, tax statement, utility bill or completion of Form 5111 F2.
This documentation is required before your children can attend and be scheduled in any classroom(s).
If applicable, we will need a copy of any legal documents pertaining to custody, guardianship, primary placement, or foster parent rights. This is to ensure data security of your student's records and information.
The documentation can be uploaded during online registration. Pictures taken of the documents are acceptable, they just need to be legible.
If the documents are not uploaded, or you would like to provide this information outside of registration, we have some other options to review them.
Upload your required documentation now using the following links:
Mail a copy of the birth certificate or legal document to the District Office at:
