Registration for New Students

  • REGISTRATION NEWS: 

    Registration for the 2021-22 School Year is OPEN!

    Thank you for your patience as the District automated the pre-registration process for new student enrollment in the Irvington Union Free School District for September.  The enrollment program is now live and can be accessed to register for the 2021-22 school year for all grades for September 2021. To access the registration enrollment program, please click here.

    When one clicks this online registration link, they will be asked to create an account before one can begin the registration. To successfully create the online registration account, a valid email address must be entered which the registrar's office will also use to contact you, if necessary. Parents or guardians will need to complete one form for each student being registered (the same account, though, will be used for multiple or future students within your family).  Detailed instructions are included in the new online registration forms.  Information entered will be saved and one can go back to the site multiple times prior to submitting the registration as time may be needed to gather the required information.  

    Upon submitting the application, the District Registrar and staff may contact you for any follow up items, particularly if you were unable to upload necessary documentation.  We will also email you once the application is marked as complete and reviewed by the District.  This will likely take a few weeks.  At any time, you may email the Registrar at registration@irvingtonschools.org and we will get back to you in a timely manner.  The District is closed for spring recess from March 29 through April 6 but we will try to respond to questions, perhaps in a less timely manner during this period.

    The Irvington School District welcomes new students to the District at any time.  Registration is governed by New York State law which requires residency within the Irvington School District boundaries for students (ages 5-21) to attend tuition free.  For Kindergarten, children must be 5 years old by December 31. Children will not be refused admission because of race, color, creed or national origin, sex, citizenship, handicapping condition or immigration status.  

    If  you are unable to complete this registration in this digital format for any reason, please contact the District Registrar at 914 591-8500 ext 5011 or Registration@Irvingtonschools.org. The District will make arrangements for a paper registration format or in Spanish as needed.  

    We look forward to meeting your child in September!  Please also begin to review the District website at www.IrvingtonSchools.org to learn about the award-winning Irvington UFSD and its many offerings/programs.  Welcome to the IUFSD family!

    The district welcomes new students to the Irvington School District at any time.  Registration is governed by New York State law which requires residency within the Irvington School District boundaries for students (ages 5-21) to attend tuition free.  For Kindergarten, children must be 5 years old by December 31. Children will not be refused admission because of race, color, creed or national origin, sex, citizenship, handicapping condition or immigration status.  

    We appreciate as much advance notice for registration as possible, so that we can be thoughtful in creating a student schedule and/or class placement.  We are open during the summer months to accept registration packets and answer registration questions. Kindergarten pre-registration typically starts in February for the following school year and the district holds special registration sessions for Kindergarten.

    The first step to registering your student is to download the registration packet of forms - links provided below.  These forms are also available for pickup at the District Office at 6 Dows Lane. We request that forms are printed single sided.  Please complete the forms and provide any helpful supporting information such as recent report cards.  We typically request to see original documentation of age via a birth certificate, passport or other approved official documents and will make a copy to put with the registration packet, returning the original to the guardian. Proof of residency will be required and the details for required supporting documentation is contained in the registration packet materials.

    Registration questions and requests for appointments to review completed registration packets should be directed to the Registrar at 914 591-8500 ext 5011 or Registration@Irvingtonschools.org.

    Business hours are as follows:

    Monday - 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
