LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – In an effort to help parents with the school registration process, Jefferson County Public Schools is now offering a new alternative.

After last year’s successful web-based registration, the district is introducing The Mobile Online Student Registration Site to help parents who often have difficulty with the registration process.

The vehicle is a mobile office featuring laptops, wireless printers and internet to give parents flexibility and more assistance with school assignment questions and an easier registration process.

The district is capitalizing on their web-based registration method after it was successful during the last school year. 

“Our superintendent and assignment office decided we needed to find ways to have new and innovative ways to get our parents. We believe our new online process was the first step and this is the next step to make sure we get to those families that for whatever reason haven’t had the opportunity to go online and register,” JCPS Ben Jackey said.

JCPS stresses that parents should register and apply immediately so they can obtain vital information about their child’s school assignment including dress codes, teacher’s name and bus information.

Parents should bring proof of residence in the form of a utility bill (LG&E, Louisville Water Company), a recent paycheck or paystub, or a government assistance program form displaying the name and address of the parent.

JCPS wants parents to register their children if they will be entering kindergarten in August for the 2013-2014 school year or if their child is a first-time student.
