Welcome to Rockford Public Schools. We are committed to providing a quality academic program and many opportunities for cocurricular activities. If you are a new student (or the parent of a new student), we invite you to review the following information:
To begin the enrollment process, complete the District Enrollment Request form and bring it, along with required documentation, to the district's Central Office located at 350 N. Main Street from Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you are coming to RPS from another district, please also complete and bring the Release of Information form. Once the documentation is reviewed, you will receive an online access code via email to complete the registration process. Those enrolling for the 2015-16 school year can expect to receive email confirmation by the end of July.
New Family/Transfer Enrollment Procedures
In order to enroll your child(ren) into Rockford Public Schools, we will need the following:• Proof of residency in Rockford with parent/guardian’s name and residential street address (no P.O. boxes):
Closing documents, current signed lease showing leaseholder’s name (parent and/or guardian), address, contact telephone number or current property tax bill, AND one utility bill.
• Original birth certificate.
Birth Certificate - The Michigan Missing Children’s Act (MCL 380.1135) requires that you provide a certified copy of the child’s birth certificate when you are enrolling in school. We will return the certified birth certificate to you. If you do not meet this requirement within 30 days, the school must notify local law enforcement.
• Complete immunization records.
Immunization Requirements - If your child is entering a Michigan school for the first time, please have your health care provider complete the immunization portion of the Health Appraisal form, or provide the school with a record showing that your child has received all of the required immunizations. Required Childhood Immunizations for Michigan School Settings
The Health Appraisal form, or other proof of immunizations, must be returned to the school your child will be attending on or before the first day your child attends school.
