Charter or Private/Parochial schools

To new residents of the RCS community who have children who attend Charter or Private/Parochial schools, we ask that you complete an enrollment form for each child and return it to the Central Registration office located in the District Offices, along with proof of residency that you reside in the district.


If your child attends a local charter or private school to which RCS provides transportation, then you will also need to complete a Transportation Request form if you would like transportation for your child.

Families in RCS community who have children who attend one of our schools and have a change of address which will require your child to change elementary schools based on geographical location are required to fill out an In-district Transfer form (available here). Two new current proofs of residency are required as described in the form. A release of record is required for each child that is changing elementary so that records may be sent to the appropriate school.


The registration packet includes:

  • Student Registration Form

  • Proof of Residency Form (submitted with required proofs of residency).

  • Health Related Forms

  • Release of School Records Form (academic/medical)

  • Internet Acceptable Use Policy

  • Free/Reduced Lunch Application (if applicable)

 You will also need the following documents:

  • Student’s original birth certificate (or a certified copy)

  • Parent/Guardian photo ID

  • Proofs of residency

  • Student’s immunization record

  • Custody papers (if applicable)

  • Individualized Education Plan (if applicable)


Your child will not be able to start school until the registration packet is complete, all pertinent documents are on file, and records have been obtained from their previous school.
