2018-19 Austin Public Schools registration is scheduled

By Corey Haugen

Director of Research, Evaluation and Assessment Austin Public Schools

As we have turned the calendar page to May, we will soon draw near to the end of another school year. District staff have begun preparing for the 2018-2019 school year and Austin Public School students currently enrolled in grades pre-k through grade 11 will receive an important mailing regarding 2018-2019 registration the week of July 23-27.

This registration mailing will include forms for family/student information, computer acceptable use, health plans, food service benefits, picture packets, and more. It will be important to review these documents and have them completed prior to your scheduled Mass Registration date/time listed below.

Mass registration for traditional calendar students will be held on Aug. 8 and 9 at Austin High School. Parents and students may enter through doors No. 7 and No. 13.

Registration schedules will be as follows:

Wednesday, Aug. 8 is designated for families with:

Last names A – E from 12:30-4 p.m.

Last names F – L from 4-7:30 p.m.

Thursday, Aug. 9 is designated for families with:

Last names M – R from 8:30 a.m. to noon

Last names S – Z from noon – 3:30 p.m.

Again this year, if families desire additional support (including language translation) getting their paperwork completed, APS representatives will be available at the Austin Public Library for assistance on Aug. 6 from noon – 6 p.m. for traditional calendar students.

If you are new to Austin and would like to enroll a student in Austin Public Schools or have questions about 2018-2019 registration, please feel free to contact the APS Enrollment Office at 507-460-1937 or visit us on the web at www.austin.k12.mn.us/pages/enrollment.aspx.
