What Is Required to Register My Child
The following are required to register your child:
Proof of date of birth (birth certificate, baptismal certificate, or other legal proof),
Two forms verifying proof of residency, and
Written immunization record from a physician, nurse, or health department.
Children must be immunized for MMR - measles, mumps and rubella (German measles), polio, DTaP - diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough), Hepatitis B, and Varicella (chicken pox) prior to school entry. State law requires students beginning Kindergarten have all required immunizations. Students missing immunizations will not be able to start school until we received these records.
We Have More Than One Option
Chico Unified School District is excited to offer traditional and alternative programs such as:
Transitional Kindergarten (a fun and educational program for children who turn five between September 2, 2019 and December 2, 2019)
Traditional Kindergarten (for children five years old on or before September 1, 2019)
Applications for these alternative programs, as well as Form 10 School of Choice applications, will be available at the time of registration. All children will be enrolled, but some may have to attend a school other than the one serving their residence area.
We are always happy to provide tours, and we look forward to showing you all the incredible things that happen at Chico Unified School District!
