2021-22 New Student Online Pre-Registration is Open 

Welcome to Clovis Unified School District!  We are excited to welcome your family and help you register your child(ren) into their resident school.  The information below will guide you through the process.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your resident school.

Who is eligible for Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten?

To be eligible to register for kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year, a child must reach five (5) years of age on or before September 1, 2020. 

To be eligible to register for kindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year, a child must reach five (5) years of age on or before September 1, 2021.

Transitional Kindergarten is available.  If your child will turn five (5) between the dates of September 2 and December 2 of the school year requested, you can enroll him or her in Clovis Unified for Transitional Kindergarten.  The Transitional Kindergarten program is designed as an introduction to the kindergarten curriculum for younger students and is a two-year program (year 1 - Transitional Kindergarten and year 2 - Kindergarten).   

What do I need to do to get ready to register and enroll my child?

Please note that only a parent or legal guardian may register a child for school.  If you are currently the physical custodian of a child or a foster parent, please contact Student Services and School Attendance at (559) 327-9200 to make an appointment to be approved/recognized as the child’s caregiver.  Appointments should be made prior to completing the document turn in portion of the registration process.  

Parents/Guardians/Caregivers should first confirm the school that aligns to their home dwelling address so they register at the correct school.  To find out what school you should register for, please utilize the CUSD mapping program  “What School Should My Child Attend”.  

Parents/Guardians/Caregivers should review their child’s immunization records.  Make sure that you have an up to date copy of all of the immunizations your child has received.  For a list of immunizations required, please click here.  

If you are interested in attending a different school, other than your resident (home) school, transfer applications will be available after your register for your resident school.  All students interested in transferring schools, must be registered at their resident (home) school prior to applying for a transfer.

If you are living outside of the Clovis Unified School District attendance boundaries, you will need to apply for a transfer prior to registering at any Clovis Unified School District school.  There are two types of transfers available for out of district residents. 

The first type of transfer is for families that have a parent/legal guardian that is employed for more than 10 hours per week at a business or own a business within the CUSD attendance boundaries.  Please check your employment address by utilizing the mapping program   “What School Should My Child Attend”.   Applications for Employment Based Residency Transfers are available here or at Student Services and School Attendance located at 1465 David E. Cook Way, Clovis, 93611.  Applications require a recent paycheck stub and supervisor’s signature, or a valid business license and a recent lease agreement for office space within the district’s boundaries.  All Applications should be turned in to Student Services and School Attendance beginning on March 2, 2020.  This option is not available for Sierra Unified School District residents.  Sierra Unified School District residents must begin the request for employment based enrollment with the interdistrict transfer process.

The second type of transfer is for families that live and work outside of the CUSD attendance boundaries.  An Interdistrict Transfer application starts at the school district of residency (Example: Fresno Unified, Central Unified, Sanger Unified, and Sierra Unified).  Parents/Guardians must contact their home school district to begin this process.  It is recommended that parents/guardians begin this process as soon as possible as these types of transfers take time to process with two school districts involved. 
Clovis Unified School District is now accepting 2020-2021 Interdistrict Transfer applications for those that wish to leave Clovis Unified.   Applications for the 2021-22 school year will be available beginning Monday, March 1, 2021.

How do I register my child?

To begin the registration process for students entering grades TK through 12th grade, Parents/Guardians/Caregivers must complete Online Pre-Registration.  There is an opportunity for parents to download required documents within the pre-registration process.  

Once completed, the electronic pre-registration application will be dated and time-stamped.  The date and time stamp is important as many sites use the information to determine a variety of different processes. 

Parents/Guardians/Caregivers, will be instructed to contact their resident school at the end of their online pre-registration process.  Parents having difficulty with the online pre-registration process or need to send enrollment documents using an alternative method should contact their resident school for other options.  


Be sure to bring your enrollment documents with you to complete the registration process.
