To register a new student in Fayette County Public Schools, a parent/guardian starts by submitting household information online and then finishes the enrollment process in person at the school.
Families joining FCPS during the current school year may enroll a student at anytime. The online form for the next fall's incoming kindergarteners is available in mid-January. Be sure to select the correct school year in the drop-down menu.
Please skim these steps before beginning:
- Start with this login.
- Select your desired language.
- Complete the fields on the screen. Be careful to choose the correct school year. The CAPTCHA will display letters and/or numbers with a colorful background behind. Type the letters and/or numbers into the text box beneath. There are no spaces. Letters are case-sensitive. If a letter shows in uppercase, type it in the text box in uppercase. If you want to change the letters and numbers displayed in the CAPTCHA, click the blue refresh button.
- Click “Begin Registration.” The program will send an email to the address you entered on the screen.
- Check your email for a message with a subject of “Welcome to Online Registration.” If you do not see it in your Inbox, please check your spam, junk, trash, etc. folder.
- Click the link at the bottom of the email. If the URL link listed at the bottom of the email does not work, please copy the URL link and paste it into a web browser.
- The program will walk you through the following sections: Household, Parent/Guardian, Emergency Contact, and Student. At the end of each section, click “Save/Continue” to save your work.
- Walk through each screen, reading the sections carefully. Use the Next and Save/Continue buttons to navigate through the form.
- Review the details very carefully, and then submit the form.
- Write down and hold onto your form's number.
For K-12 students, families must then go to their neighborhood's assigned school to complete the registration. Bring the online form number and two proofs of residence, such as a property deed or current lease agreement in your name, and a secondary document such as a current utility bill or a current tax bill or receipt. To determine your child’s school, use the SchoolSite Locator tool.
For preschool consideration, families must complete an application packet at their local elementary or downtown in the Early Childhood Department, 701 E. Main St. Packets are available in late April for the following school year.
