Reminder About Enrollment:
  • If your student attends FLEX now and plans on staying next year, there is nothing you need to do. Students are automatically enrolled at FLEX for the 2021-22 school year.

  • If your student is going to attend a different school next fall, please contact FLEX at flex-online-school@beaverton.k12.or.us and the other school with this information.

  • If you or someone you know has a student who will be joining us for the first time next fall, please visit our enrollment page on the FLEX website to register.
