ONLINE REGISTRATION for incoming kindergarteners and new students

District 15 has launched its first online registration platform, simplifying and expediting the registration process.

Click here to register your incoming kindergartener or new student for the 2019-20 school year.

Upon completion of online registration, parents must show the following documentation in-person to fully complete the registration process:

  • Health forms
  • Proof of residency
  • Birth certificate
  • Student transfer forms (if child is transferring from another school)

Second language families still need to attend the Jan. 30 registration so their child(ren) can be screened for language proficiency.

Turn in your residency, health and birth certificate forms during registration events beginning this week. Parents having difficulty completing online registration on their own will have access to computers and assistance during these events as well.

If you complete online registration and cannot attend the registration events, please drop the required forms off at your child's home school during regular office hours. Registration will not be complete until these forms are received.

Wednesday, Jan. 30:
Second Language Families
5-7:30 p.m. at Willow Bend & Winston Campus (parents from anywhere in the district should register their child at these locations if the child's home language is not English)

Willow Bend: 4700 Barker Avenue, Rolling Meadows
Winston Campus: 900 E. Palatine Road, Palatine

*In the event that school is closed due to cold weather, this event will be rescheduled.

Spanish Dual Language

Information regarding two-way immersion Spanish Dual Language (SDL) kindergarten will be available for parents during registration events. An SDL informational night for interested parents will take place at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, February 27 at Jane Addams Elementary School. Letters of commitment are due in March.

Review district's winter weather protocols

Severe winter weather is upon us this week. Please familiarize yourself with the district's Severe Cold Response Plans to understand when school may be closed due to extremely cold temperatures.

Determining when schools will be closed due to snow is not as simple. There are many variables to consider, including the timing of the snowfall, when roadways may be cleared and the ability to get school buses safely on the roads.

In the event that school will be closed, we will notify families and staff no later than 5:30 a.m. Notifications will be sent through text, email, phone, social media,, District 15's mobile app and local news outlets.
