APS News Release

Online Registration for the Current 2019-20 School Year is Now Available

Registration for the Upcoming, 2020-21 School Year to Open at a Later Date

Starting today, families that need to register students for the current 2019-20 school year are now able to register using the new conditional online registration process. Since all APS school buildings closed on March 13 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, families have been unable to register students for school, so this new process will allow families to submit the needed documents online.

Online Submission: The complete list of required documents and details of the conditional online registration process are available on the Conditional Online Registration webpage. The documents families submit online are shared with APS through a secure website. Families should never send registration documents to schools through email and should only use the secure upload website for privacy and information security reasons.

Virtual Meeting: After the registration documents are received, an APS staff member will contact the registering parent or legal guardian to set up a virtual meeting. During the virtual meeting, a staff member will review all registration documents submitted, answer questions, and provide next steps in the registration process. It is requested that families have all original documents available at the time of the scheduled virtual meeting. Families not able to participate in virtual meetings will receive a phone call from an APS staff member.

Once the conditional registration process has been completed, someone from the school will contact families to provide them with information on distance learning and how to access it.

In-Person Follow Up: The conditional online registration process allows students to register online without submitting all of the required registration documents while schools are closed. Once schools reopen, school staff will follow-up with newly registered families to schedule in-person meetings to finalize the registration process. During these meetings, families will be able to submit notarized paper documents, immunization records, and any other documents that could not be submitted digitally. These documents are not required for conditional online registration, but are required before students are able to attend school in-person.

Registration for the 2020-21 School Year: APS is currently working to expand the conditional online registration process so families are able to register students for the 2020-21 school year, and will notify families of the date registrations will begin to be accepted for next school year. Students registering for the current school year are being prioritized for the registration process so they are able to participate in distance learning currently underway.

Families are able to access the secure upload website by visiting the Conditional Online Registration webpage.
