Enrolling Students

  • Registration is open for students who will be entering Frederick County Public Schools in the 2022-23 school year. All children who will be five years of age on or before September 30, 2022, must be registered for kindergarten for the 2022-23 school year.  Parents wishing to delay their child’s attendance for one year must submit a written request to the Superintendent.

    Step 1: Please call the school the student will attend to schedule a registration appointment or to start the registration process remotely.

    Step 2: Gather documents. Parents registering their children are required to provide the following documentation:

    • Photo ID of Person Registering Student (choose one):
      • Valid/current Virginia Driver’s license
      • Valid/current Photo ID Card (from the DMV)

    • Proof of Residency (choose two from the list of acceptable proof of residency below)
    • Birth Certificate (issued by state)
    • Immunization Record
    • Physical Examination (elementary only)

    A physical examination form should be completed by a physician no earlier than 12 months prior to the date of entrance into school if student is enrolling in public school for the first time. For students who have been enrolled in public school previously, the physical examination form submitted at the time of first enrollment may be used.

    During registration, you will be asked to sign a release form, allowing Frederick County Public Schools to request records from the previous school attended.
