Wichita schools once again will offer online enrollment for the 2014-15 school year.
Beginning July 14, parents will be able to complete standard enrollment forms, pay enrollment fees, pay for school meals and fill out free and reduced-price lunch forms from any computer. District officials are encouraging families to use the service to streamline the enrollment process.
Last year the district did not offer online enrollment because it was implementing a new computerized student information system. That led to longer wait times at some schools.
This year, parents with children returning to Wichita schools are being encouraged to go to ParentVue – https://parentvue.usd259.net – before the end of the school year to make sure all their information is current. Returning parents who have not set up a ParentVue account should contact their child’s school for more information.
Enrollment information is online at www.enroll.usd259.org.
Most Wichita students still will need to visit their schools during enrollment at the end of July. Secondary students are required to come to school to get class schedules and ID badges and to sign policy forms. Elementary schools encourage parents to come by to pay for latchkey services and pick up information such as class-specific supply lists.
Regular enrollment for the 2014-15 school year is July 25-31. Schools will have consistent enrollment times to make it more convenient for parents who enroll children at different schools.
Enrollment times are: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 25 and 28; noon to 7 p.m. July 29-31.
The first day of school for all Wichita students is Aug. 12, with a half-day orientation for sixth- and ninth-grade students on Aug. 11.
