Is there a difference between enrollment and registration?

Posted by:

Enrollment is typically a one time only event that occurs when a student enters the school system for the first time. Parents or guardians must prove residency and provide other pertinent information in order to enroll their child/children. If a student leaves the district and returns, the parent/guardian(s) is required to re-enroll their student(s).


Registration is a yearly event in which parents/guardians update information and pay fees for their children. Junior high and high school students receive class schedules and complete other functions to prepare for a new school year.
