Registering your child for school is as easy as ABC
Bismarck Public Schools wants to make the school registration process as easy as possible for busy parents. we understand that it can be confusing trying to figure out which of the district's schools your child will attend.
To alleviate some of the confusion and help parents get all the information they need, and to assist in completing all the proper forms, the district operates a Central Registration Office where everything parents need is under one roof.
Parents of elementary, middle and high school children go to Central Registration to enroll their children in school. This process includes students new to Bismarck Public Schools, as well as those transferring from one Bismarck Public School attendance area to another.
