Important Registration information for the 2014 - 2015 school year.
BPS Registration for the upcoming school year occurs in four Rounds. Assignment does not occur until the end of each round and therefore is
NOT "first-come, first-served" for students who registered in the same round. However, students are assigned to schools after each round, leading to fewer open seats with every passing round. Therefore, families should try to register during their earliest possible round for their grade.
Kindergarten, Grade 6, Grade 9
January 6, 2014 - January 31, 2014
New to BPS families seeking an assignment to these grades should register at a Welcome Center during this period. Students already in BPS moving up to Grade 6 and 9 will receive their Assignment Application from their current schools. Families that need to register siblings in addition to children that fall within Round One may register all their children at the same time; however, the children who are applying for grades other than those noted will not be assigned until the close of Round Two.
