Registration 

All NEW Students Register for enrollment in Salem City Schools using our new Pre-Registration Portal.  

All parents should register their NEW student(s) using our new Pre-Registration Portal using the steps below.  This does NOT apply to students who are CURRENTLY enrolled in the current school year.
 
If you are not able to complete this process online you can schedule a visit to the school building where they will assist you to complete the registration process using this same Pre-Registration Portal.

3.  Parent completes the Full Registration for the student.
4.  School reviews the Full Registration.  Priority is given to current year registrations.  Upon review an email message will be sent to accepted students. If a students registration is rejected an email will also be sent.
