Enrollment

Welcome to Williston Public School District #1



2020-2021 Enrollment

Enrollment for the 2020-2021 School Year will begin in April, 2020. Parents/Guardians will need to re-enroll their students online using their Parent Portal account. If you do not remember your username/password, please contact your school to have that information reset. Online re-enrollment is required for ALL students to return to school for the 2020-2021 school year.

If you are interested in transferring your student to another school within our district, transfer request forms for the 2020-2021 will be available at the District Office beginning in April.

NEW this year: Proof of residency will not be required for all families this year. In an effort to help streamline the proof of residency process for families, we are now running all student addresses through a public information database (Clear/BATCH System) for residency verification. If another address is identified using the Clear/BATCH System, the parent(s)/guardian(s) will be notified that they will need to provide additional information to the District Office before their student(s) will be allowed to enroll/attend school. For those families who do not have additional addresses identified using the Clear/BATCH System, they will not need to provide additional proof of residency documents to the district, unless their address changes.

All children in the United States are entitled to equal access to a basic public elementary and secondary education regardless of their actual or perceived race, color, national origin, citizenship, immigration status, or the status of their parents/guardians. School districts that either prohibit or discourage, or maintain policies that have the effect of prohibiting or discouraging, children from enrolling in schools because they or their parents/guardians are not United States citizens or are undocumented may be in violation of Federal law.

A school district may not ask about your or your child’s citizenship or immigration status to establish residency within the district, nor may a school district deny a homeless child (including a homeless child who is undocumented) enrollment because he or she cannot provide the required documents to establish residency.

IMPORTANT: Williston Public School District # 1 reserves the right to evaluate the evidence presented, and simply presenting the elements listed in the procedure does not guarantee enrollment.
