JCPS Enrollment Processes
JCPS has implemented an online registration process for all students. This process has increased our efficiency and effectiveness in collecting the required data, but does not prevent the need for a face-to-face meeting at your child's school.
Enrollment procedures and requirements may vary from district to district and state to state. Please carefully read the information below to make the enrollment process a smooth and successful experience.
If you do not have access to a computer or tablet, you will need to contact the JCPS Enrollment Center to set up an appointment for a face-to-face meeting to complete your registration. The JCPS Enrollment Center can be contacted by calling 888-90-ENROLL, or 888-903-6765. If you do not have an email account, you will have an opportunity to create one from the online registration form. Online registration will take approximately 15-20 minutes. After completing enrollment, parents will be prompted to complete additional forms in their parent's dashboard. Parents will receive an email from Scribbles for incomplete forms.
It is important for parents or guardians to choose the school that serves their address to register their children.

- Proof of Residency - proof of homeownership, signed lease agreement, utility bill (gas, water, utilities) in your name, rental receipt, current listing on income tax forms, personal property tax listings. If the document provided is not from within the past 30 days, additional proof may be requested. (A driver’s license is not adequate proof of residency)
- Proof of Age - child’s birth certificate or other documented proof of age (Examples: birth certificate or hospital birth record recorded before age 5; or a religious record which shows your date of birth and was recorded before age 5. Other examples: If you cannot obtain the preferred evidence of your child’s age, you will be asked for other convincing evidence that shows the date of birth or age at a certain time, such as: an original family bible or family record; school records; census records; a statement signed by the physician or midwife who was present at your birth; insurance policies; a passport; a delayed birth certificate, or an immigration or naturalization record.)
- Immunization/Health Assessment Record - must meet NC immunization / health assessment requirements and the Board of Education's immunization policy.

Because North Carolina does not offer preschool for all children, children have to qualify for one of our preschool services in order to attend one of our classrooms. You will be unable to register your child(ren) until they have been accepted. How we serve our preschool families can be found on the JCPS Preschool page.
