On-Site Enrollment Support

  • On-site enrollment support is provided each summer prior to the beginning of the school year. Families who move into the district in the middle of the school year can receive on-site support from the Registrar at the Learning Resource Center (LRC). 

    Our annual enrollment process is available in both English and Spanish. However, we wish to support families without internet access or those in need of an interpreter. Several on-site enrollment support dates are available for our WDMCS families. You can enroll at ANY location. You do not need to go to the school where your child attends to enroll.
