Boston Public School Registration Starts January 4th

Boston Public Schools registration for the 2010-2011 school year starts on Monday, January 4

Students entering Kindergarten, Grade 6 or Grade 9 may register during the month of January

BOSTON – Boston Public Schools (BPS) announces the start of the registration process for the 2010-2011 school year. The first round of registration runs from January 4 – February 5, 2010 and is open to students entering Kindergarten, Grade 6 or Grade 9.

How to Register

·          Parents/guardians of new-to-BPS students must visit one of BPS Family Resource Centers (FRC) to register their child(ren) for school.  To save time, parents may begin the process online using the district’s pre-registration site, BPSExpress; however, the registration process must be completed in person at an FRC. The FRCs have extended hours during the next four weeks of registration, including new Saturday hours at the East Zone FRC. A complete list of locations and hours is below.
