The Strafford R-VI School District is implementing a new student registration process beginning with the 2022-23 school year. Please read the information below to learn the details to the THREE step process.

 

NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION PROCESS - FOR ALL NEW PK-12TH GRADE STUDENTS:
As a reminder, we DO NOT accept anyone living outside of our district.

1. Complete the Request for New Student Registration Form -
This will be a google form available beginning Monday, July 11. The parent/guardian will provide some general information, including personal information and the student names and grade levels to be registered.

2.  Once the above form is submitted and processed by the Registrar, the parent/guardian will receive instructions, by email, for completing the New Student Registration Forms online from home

3. Parent/Guardian Provides Required Documents In-Person to the Central Office
Beginning on Tuesday, August 2, if the parent/guardian has completed the required new student registration forms AND has received approval from the Registrar, then they will bring the items listed below, in-person, to the central office:

  • Proof of Residency - This document must have the parent/guardian's name who is completing the registration and the current address (within our school district). Accepted examples include a current City of Strafford water bill, current electric bill, current rental agreement or current mortgage agreement. 
  • Immunization Records
  • Birth Certificate

Once all the above steps have been completed, the parent/guardian will receive a phone call from the building offices regarding completion of enrollment into our district!  

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  • How do I know if I live in the school district?
    As a reminder, we do not enroll students who do not reside within our school district boundaries. You can click on the links provided to view our
    District Boundary Map, the Greene County Assessor’s webpage or Webster County Assessor’s webpage to see what school district your residence is officially in.

  • Can I bring my documents to the central office in August without submitting any forms prior?
    No, parents/guardians must follow the steps outlined above, submit all required forms online AND be approved by the Registrar before they can come to the central office to provide official documents in August.

  • Do my kids need to come with me to the central office when I bring the documents?
    No, the student does not have to be in attendance to be registered. Students and families will be able to attend the various building open houses before school starts.

  • Do I need to bring any previous school records with me to registration?
    No, you do not need to bring any previous school records. There is a Request for Records Form in the online registration packet that each parent/guardian will complete. The building offices will get the records needed from the previous schools.

  • What is an acceptable proof of residency document?
    Acceptable proof of residency documents include a rental agreement, mortgage bill, closing documents, or a water/electric/propane bill. The bill must be in the name of the parent/guardian who is in attendance and registering the student AND all documents must be current.
