Apply for an Open Enrollment Permit
Applications are now being accepted for School Choice Open Enrollment for students who wish to attend a school other than their resident (boundary) school. The open enrollment school choice lottery closed on December 31st. (Any applications submitted during the month of December will be approved according to Permit Procedures.)
Beginning the first of January until February 15th, permit requests will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis as the school's capacity allows. No Board priorities will be considered during this time period. After February 16th, permit requests will be considered based on staffing ratios.
New Student Enrollment
Jordan School District can process new student enrollments (for students who are new to our district) online using the Skyward Family Access system. If you do not have a Skyward Family Access account, please select Temporary Account for New Student Enrollment. If you already have a Skyward Family Access account or have created a temporary account, please select New Student Enrollment. If you need to know what boundary school your student would attend, please visit the Boundary Locator page. If you wish to apply for a school outside your boundary, please contact the school you wish to enroll your student at and visit our School Choice page for additional information.
- Please Note: Once you have completed the online enrollment portion, please take the required forms to the school to complete the process:
- Children must be five years old on or before September 1 to enter kindergarten.
- You will need an original birth certificate or a certified copy of a birth certificate for any child who is enrolling in the District.
- You will need to show proof that your child has been immunized against communicable diseases including measles, mumps, polio, etc. Visit the immunization requirements page for more information.
- If your child is under age 7 and registering for the first time in Jordan District, you will need proof of vision screening for Amblyopia. This screening can be done by a licensed physician or health care professional or at a pre-school vision clinic conducted by Jordan School District nurses.
- Your child's legal name (the name that appears on the birth certificate) will be used on all official school records.
- Students moving with a custodial guardian or legal guardian will need a withdrawal from their previous school of attendance, certified birth certificate (if entering kindergarten or a school in Utah for the first time), immunization records, and copies of any academic records that could assist in placing the student in appropriate classes. The previous school will send official school records to the new school once the student has officially enrolled.
- If your child will not be living with a legal guardian, a special permit from Planning and Student Services is required. Please call us at 801-567-8183 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST).
- If your student is attending a Utah public charter school they may be enrolled in their Jordan School District boundary school the following school year provided notice is given to the boundary school on or before June 30th. If an application for admission is submitted during the current school year or after June 30th, the student may be enrolled provided the school has adequate capacity in the student's grade level or required core classes (§53G-6-503).
- Dual enrollment is for home school or private school students only. If your student is attending another public school, charter or online school accessing public funds, they may not enroll in Jordan District schools. Charter and online school students are eligible to participate in extra-curricular activities at their Jordan District boundary school provided the extra-curricular activity is not offered by the student's charter or online school and provided they meet all other requirements as outlined in §53G-6-702 and R277-494-3-5.
