Registration Checklist

This general registration checklist has been created to help families complete some of the steps required to register a student for the coming school year. Families should check school websites for any registration requirements they may also have.

Registration is a required step for the start of school each year and occurs in late July or early August, and will be announced when it opens.

If you have any trouble with your Jeffco Connect login, contact your child's school for assistance.

NEW to Jeffco Public Schools

If you are new to our district, start by going to Jeffco Connect. Once you get there, choose "New Parent/Guardian to Jeffco Public Schools" and begin the process of setting up a parent account.

Once you finish entering your parent information, enter student information for each student you need to enroll. After you have entered all of your information, hit "Submit."

Once you complete the Jeffco Connect process, visit Enroll Jeffco to search for and enroll your student(s) in a Jeffco school.

You will need to provide the following to the school of attendance:

  • Birth certificate
  • Immunization records
  • Proof of residence

Returning to Jeffco, But Going to a New School

Since you are returning to Jeffco, you already have a Jeffco Connect account. Do not create a new Jeffco Connect account. If you are changing schools because you have moved, log in to Jeffco Connect to change your parent address. Then change the address of each student you have enrolled in a Jeffco school.

Once you update Jeffco Connect, contact your new school to check in and allow for the enrollment secretary to request a file transfer.

When complete, use the checklist below to get ready to start school!

Returning to Jeffco and Attending the Same School

All parents/guardians must update Jeffco Connect every year in order for their students to be considered registered.

Log in to Jeffco Connect to be sure all your child's information is up to date, such as health, residence details, and contact preferences. Be sure to save when done.

When complete, use the checklist below to get ready to start school!
