Kindergarten and New Student Registration is Now Open!

Online registration for incoming kindergarteners and new students for the 2020-21 school year is now open!

Kindergarten students must be five years old on or before September 1, 2020 to be eligible to enroll.

Parents may register online from home, and do not need to do so in person unless assistance is needed.

Kindergarten and new student registration assistance is being offered on Tuesday, Jan. 14 at Willow Bend and Winston Campus Elementary Schools from 5-7:30 p.m. These sessions are for anyone district-wide needing help completing the kindergarten/new student online registration process. Language support will be available.

Registration Requirements and Helpful Contacts

Following the completion of online registration, parents will need to show health forms, birth certificates, proof of residency, and any school transfer forms (if applicable) in person. These documents may be brought to your child's home school during office hours on days when school is in session.

An email address is needed to complete District 15's new online registration process. If you need help creating one, please contact your school's main office, or visit wikiHow to make an email address for free.

In the event that a family is unable to provide any needed documentation because of a temporary living situation, please contact Julie O'Hara, 847-963-3210,; or Min Goodwin, 847-963-3209,, in the Superintendent's Office.

If you believe you're eligible for services under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, please contact Alicia Corrigan, Director of Student Services, 847-963-3152,

How Are We Doing? Take the 5Essentials Survey

How are we doing? Take the 5Essentials survey to share your feedback.

This is your opportunity to evaluate your school according to five areas, including but not limited to instructional climate, homework policies and quality of facilities. Fill out your online survey through Feb. 14, 2020.

The results from this survey will become part of each school's public Illinois School Report Card. The data is also used periodically by media outlets as part of national and state school rankings.

We thank you for your feedback!
