In addition to completing the online registration process, the following is required for all children new to District 200 (i.e., if your child did not attend D200 preschool, and has not been previously registered in this district).

  • State law requires an original or certified copy of a birth certificate at the time of registration; your child will not be registered without one. Hospital certificates are not acceptable.
  • Proof of residency within D200 boundaries is required (driver’s license, utility bill, apartment lease, home ownership title or deed or automobile insurance).
  • Health requirements include current physical, vision and dental exams, prior to admission.

Beginning on March 7, we will collect paperwork on school days between the hours of 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. Please come to Door #1.  We will make copies and return your documents to you. Registration links will be posted on this page when online registration for the district opens.
