Dear Ross Valley Families,

Welcome to the Ross Valley School District!  We are pleased you have chosen Ross Valley to provide your child/ren’s education. 

If you have a child currently attending school in the Ross Valley School District, there is no need to re-register him/her.  Only students who are not currently attending a school in the District are required to register.


Kindergarten Eligibility & Orientations for the 2018-19 School Year

For the 2018-19 school year, a child must have his/her 5th birthday on or before September 1, 2018 to be eligible to attend Kindergarten. 

Students currently attending Transitional Kindergarten in Ross Valley do not need to re-register. 

Kindergarten Orientation will be held at each elementary school site.  The Orientation is an informational evening designed for parents/guardians (no children, please) to learn about the Kindergarten program and receive general information about the school site.  Orientation dates are as follows:

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) Eligibility & Orientation for the 2018-19 School Year

For the 2018-19 school year, a child must have his/her 5th birthday between September 2 and December 2, 2018 to be eligible to attend Transitional Kindergarten. 

Information on Transitional Kindergarten will be presented at a Transitional Kindergarten Orientation that is scheduled for Tuesday, March 27, 2018 from 6:30-7:30pm in the Brookside Library.  The TK program is still under development for the 2018-19 school year as the eligibility of students will include 3 months of students (those who turn 5 between September 2 and December 2, 2018), and program implementation (including location/s) will depend on the number of students who enroll.  Completing registration will give us a way to contact you as we determine program implementation. 


New Students to TK – 8th Grades Registration Process

Our registration process includes online as well as hard copy and in-person components. 

In continuing our efforts to reduce paper consumption and to be service oriented and efficient, we use SchoolMint, an online enrollment system.  SchoolMint helps to reduce the time parents/guardians spend completing required school forms for one or more children and can be accessed via a computer or smartphone.  For parents/guardians who do not have computer, online, or smartphone access, technology is available at the school sites.  Because not all required registration items can be provided via SchoolMint, some of the registration process will continue to be required via hard copy and in person at the student’s school of residence.  For parents/guardians who do not have printer access, hard copies are available at the school sites.

To assist the District in enrollment, staffing, and facilities planning, please complete registration by March 1 or as soon as possible.  Because many elementary grade levels and schools in the Ross Valley School District are impacted, if more students register at their school of residence than can be accommodated, even if by March 1, students may be assigned to another district school where space is available.  Any reassignments will be determined prior to the student’s first day of attendance. 

Online Registration begins Wednesday, January 24, 2018, and In-Person Registration begins Thursday, February 1, 2018.  We do not accept registration items via fax, mail, or email.  Please note that only completed registration packets are accepted and each is date/time stamped.  A completed registration packet includes the online Student Registration Forms on SchoolMint and the In-Person Forms and Documentation.
