Have questions about enrolling in a Jordan District school?
Here are a few things to know:
- To enter kindergarten , children must be five years old on or before September 1.
- Want to enroll in Preschool? For preschool, contact the Jordan Child Development Center.
- Your student will be placed in a grade according to age. We may honor an acceleration or retention with adequate documentation.
- An original or a certified copy of a birth certificate is required for any child.
- If the child is not living with a parent/legal guardian, authorization is required to enroll. Please call us at 801.567.8183.
- Proof of immunization against communicable diseases including measles, mumps, polio, etc. is required. Visit the Immunization Requirements page for more information.
- A proof of vision screening for amblyopia is required if your child is under age 7 and registering for the first time. This screening can be done by a licensed physician or health care professional or at a preschool 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.
- Want to return to Jordan from a charter school? Returning charter students may enroll in their Jordan School District boundary school the following school year provided notice is given on or before June 30. The student may be enrolled during the current school year or after June 30, provided the requested school has adequate capacity in the student's grade level or required core classes (Utah Code §53G-6-503).
- Charter and online school students are eligible to participate in extracurricular activities or co-curricular classes at their Jordan District boundary school provided the activity/classes are not offered by the charter or online school, and provided they meet all other requirements as outlined in Utah Code §53G-6-702 and R277-494-3-5.
- Students may maintain their home school status and be dual-enrolled in a public school, as long as it does not exceed the daily enrollment allowed by the State (less than fifty percent). Many online schools use public school funding, therefore students may not be enrolled in these schools and their local school simultaneously.
School Choice Permit
Those who wish to attend a school other than their resident boundary school may file a request online for a School Choice Permit at the school they desire to attend. Permit applications can be submitted during three windows:
- December (early enrollment) - Permit requests will be considered by category, priority and/or a lottery.
- January 1st to the 3rd Friday in February - Permits requests will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis.
- After the 3rd Friday in February - Permit requests will be considered based on staffing ratios.

Once a permit is granted, there is no need to "re-apply" each year. A permit remains in force until a student graduates (or moves to the next level, i.e. graduates from elementary to middle), the student is no longer a Utah resident, the student is expelled or suspended, or the District determines that enrollment has exceeded the allowed threshold for the school (at which time those affected would be notified.)
