2023-2024 Continuing Student Registration
Online Continuing Student Registration is open from March 1- March 31, 2022. We must receive a completed digital packet for all returning students. This will allow for proper placement of your student for the 2023-2024 school year. This annual digital process will allow a family to complete one single “family” packet instead of completing one packet per student. Packets can be completed using any computer, tablet or smartphone with an internet connection.

Continuing Registration Steps: 
1. Login and complete the digital registration packet via the online registration portal found here.
 2. Review and complete any required forms located at the conclusion of the process. A packet is not considered finalized until this step is completed. 

2023-2024 Transfer Information
The Poway Unified transfer window is now open! Transfer requests for students who live within the Poway Unified boundaries and would like to attend a different Poway school other than their school of residence should be submitted online by visiting the PUSD webpage and clicking the “Transfers Requests”  link on the home page. This includes incoming siblings of current students. Please enroll your student at their school of residence when new student enrollment opens online on April 1, 2023. Transfer requests cannot be processed until the student is enrolled in their school of residence.

The transfer window closes on March 31st. For more information please visit the Residency & Transfers webpage.
