Registration for the 23-24 School Year - ACTION NEEDED
Online student registration for the 2023-2024 school year is now open. Please visit our registration page to start this process.
Registration is the first step in getting ready for the upcoming school year. After you register your child online you need to:
- Pay student fees. Our student fee webpage outlines the District’s student fee structure and the three ways fees can be paid. Information regarding fee waivers for families that qualify is also found on this page of our website.
- New families to the district, kindergarten students, families with a lease, and families that were flagged by our third-party residency verification system are required to provide proof of residency to complete the registration process. Our residency webpage outlines the documents you will need to provide to prove residency.
All returning students MUST be registered by August 1, 2023, or they will be disenrolled from CCSD15. Students who have not completed their registration requirements will not receive a classroom assignment. Families that do not complete the registration by July 31, 2023, should contact their school to re-enroll their child(ren).
All three steps of the enrollment process must be completed prior to the start of the school year.

District 15 is "green" in its approach to distributing community and informational flyers. Rather than sending flyers home with each student via backpacks, flyers are posted for free on the D15 E-Flyers page for parents to view or print 24/7. Check out our website to view the e-flyers!

Math Curriculum Connections
April Unit Task
Thank you to the families who submitted their unit Illustrative Math family tasks during the month of March! We enjoyed seeing your child use math outside of the classroom.
Illustrative Math provides students and families with an opportunity to take their learning from the classroom and apply it to an authentic situation. Each problem lends itself to deep conceptual understanding. Below you will find a unit task for the month of April as well as a companion support video that explains what each grade level is learning in class. Click here to learn more about problem-based learning.
Follow the steps below to complete the optional unit task for the month of April.
1. Find your child’s grade level below and click the link to access your unit task.
2. Read through the “Try It At Home” section and complete the task.
3. Send your family’s math work to your child’s teacher in the form of a written paper, photo story, or a video of your child demonstrating and explaining their thinking.
