Official notices of school assignment for the 2013-14 school year will be distributed to students on Jan. 7.
Assignments for next year allow students to “grandfather,” or stay at their current schools with their current level of transportation, unless the student has been assigned to one of our new schools, or the student is entering sixth or ninth grade. Rising sixth and ninth grade students have received assignments for their base schools.
Students who want to move to their base schools for 2013-14 may request to be assigned there by participating in the Base Declaration Period from Jan. 7-14.
Base declaration period begins Monday
Students who are not currently attending their base schools may request to be assigned there during the upcoming Base Declaration Period from January 7-14. These students will have guaranteed seats at their base schools in 2013-14 unless that school has reached its maximum capacity and has been capped.
To request assignment to a base school, parents must submit an application online through the WCPSS website between Jan. 7-14. In order to apply online, parents must have their child’s NC WISE identification number. Parents may also visit their base school or the student’s current school for assistance with submitting their online application.
Notifications will be distributed on Jan. 21.
Kindergarten registration begins Monday
Parents may pre-enroll their rising kindergartners beginning Jan. 7 at their assigned base school. To view the school assigned to their address, parents may use the school assignment address look-up tool.
For complete registration information and locations and a list of what to bring, parents may visit our webpage on how to enroll.
Parents of rising kindergartners or new students to the system can also download and print all necessary registration forms in one handy place.

Parents with rising kindergartners are strongly encouraged to sign up for WCPSS email alerts with announcements and deadlines for the enrollment process.
