We have a work-around for those families who are new to the district and/or have never had a student attend any of the schools in our district.  By moving down through this form to the "New Families to the District" section, you will see instructions on how to register for either the rest of this school year or next school year.

Scroll down this page for information about Preschool and Kindergarten

 Online Registration Process

Our online registration process has been created to allow parents/guardians to register their students at their own convenience and is designed to retain all of your student/family information to save you time for future registrations.  If you do not have access to a computer, please contact your child's home residence school for assistance.  Once you have completed the registration process for one year, the majority of the information you have added will be visible for each following year.  YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO UPDATE THE DATES FOR SELECTED FIELDS EVERY YEAR.

Special Note: If you believe that your child would be eligible to be a TK student, register your child as a Kindergarten student and then submit the form available by clicking here or going to https://forms.office.com/r/KUcQ9kEVqQ.

Returning Families: (Returning Family definition: "You currently have or have had a student enrolled at Western Dubuque Schools no matter how long ago it has been.")
