New Student Enrollment 

New Student Enrollment is open!

We are happy to welcome you to our school district!

New Student Enrollment for Poway Unified School District is an on-line process. 

As required by State law, all children entering Kindergarten must be five years of age on or before September 1, 2022. If your child's 5th birthday is between September 2, 2022 and February 2, 2023, they will be enrolled in Transitional Kindergarten. For first grade enrollment, California law requires a child to be six years of age on or before September 1 to be legally eligible for first grade. (EC Section 48010) See 22-23 Grade Level Chart

PLEASE NOTE: Your student’s enrollment ensures a seat at a school in Poway Unified. We make every effort to enroll your child at your neighborhood school. In some cases, classes at your neighborhood school may reach capacity, in which case we will work with you to place your child at a nearby school.‚Äč 

TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN AND/OR KINDERGARTEN LOTTERIES: Should a site be determined near capacity in grades TK or K, a lottery process may be necessary to determine student placement. Only enrollment packets received between April 1, 2022 and April 5, 2022 11:59 p.m. at these sites will be eligible to be included if a lottery process is necessary.
