Welcome to New Student Registration
If your child has ever attended WFPS before, please go back to returning student.
The enrollment process at West Fargo Public Schools is done in two phases: preregistration and fall registration. The initial preregistration form must be completed once for each new student enrolling in the district. Once submitted, the preregistration form is reviewed within five business days and the district registrar then sends instructions via email to complete the registration process.
To begin the enrollment process, please check your address on our district map to determine which school your child will attend for this school year. Please note that students in K – 5, 6 – 8, and 9 – 12 attend different schools.
Once you have determined your neighborhood school, please complete the online preregistration form below that best applies to your situation (new student in kindergarten or new student in grades 1 - 12).
Prior to the first day of school, each registered child should provide a paper copy of a current immunization record, hard copy, or digital copy of proof of identity (birth certificate, visa, I-94, or other government-issued ID, per North Dakota Century Code 12-60-26), and proof of residency. Paper copies can be scanned at your neighborhood school.
North Dakota Century Code 33-06-05-01 requires any child admitted to school be required to receive the immunizations according to the recommended schedule set forth by the state department of health. Any child not adhering to the recommended schedule must provide proof of immunization or a certificate of immunization within 30 days of enrollment or be excluded from school or an early childhood facility.
If you know of a child between the ages of 0 - 21 that lives in the West Fargo School District, who may have a disability and who is receiving no special services, please contact our Special Education Department at (701) 356-2003.
Each student attends school in the attendance area within the school district as determined by their address. Exceptions requested by parents, such as a request for admittance to Community High School and the Early Childhood Center, may be granted after consultation between the parents of the student and the appropriate administrative staff. Please check your address on our district map to determine your attendance area. For assistance determining your school, call (701) 499-1067.
Registration forms with Community High School or Early Childhood Center selected will be reviewed for consideration into the program. For additional information, or to inquire about the registration process for Community High School, please contact (701) 356-2008. For additional information, or to inquire about the registration process for the Early Childhood Center, please contact (701) 356-2020.
YOU'VE COMPLETED THE PREREGISTRATION PHASE, SO NOW WHAT?
Once submitted, the preregistration form is reviewed within five business days and the district registrar sends instructions via email to complete the registration process. Please check your email regularly following the submission of your preregistration form. The email instructions will instruct you to complete the final phase of the enrollment process: registration. While preregistration needs to be completed only once in a student's career at West Fargo Public Schools (when enrolling as a kindergarten student or as a new student), the registration phase is completed every year for every student. Registration allows parents/guardians to update emergency contact information, medical records, and permission forms. It also confirms a student's enrollment for the upcoming year, allowing them to be placed in the applicable class(es).
