Enrolling in a Laveen School
The Laveen Elementary School District has one attendance boundary to serve all of its eight schools — the district boundary. Students may now attend any Laveen school of their choice. Paseo Pointe School and Vista del Sur Accelerated Academy have additional enrollment requirements. Visit our Open Boundaries page for details.
Registering your child for the 2020-21 School Year
Families enrolling their child for the upcoming school year should return a registration packet before April 24, 2020 to their first-choice school (registration for students wishing to attend Estrella Foothills Global Academy will take place at the Laveen Education Center, 5001 W. Dobbins). Within the packet you will be asked to select your top three school choices in order of preference. Packets are available online (below) and in our schools’ front offices. Along with your completed registration packet, you will need to bring the following documents to complete your child’s registration:
- Child’s original birth certificate
- Child’s immunization record
- Proof of Residence, such as utility receipt or lease agreement (refer to Arizona Residency Guidelines)
- Legal papers, if applicable for custody
- Withdrawal form and report card from previous school
- Photo identification for parent/guardian.
Packets returned before April 24 will be processed first. Placement decisions will be made in May.
Registration packets will be accepted after the April 24 date, but will be processed at a later time.
Placement is subject to available space and is based on the following priorities:
- Students enrolled the previous school year*
- Siblings of students enrolled
- Students living within the walk or transportation zones of the school
- Children of employees
- Students living within the district boundary and not included in any of the above categories
- Students living outside the district boundary and not included in any of the above categories
*Enrollment in a school’s preschool program does not guarantee placement at that particular school.
Families that live outside of the Laveen District boundaries (non-resident) may also apply for open enrollment to a Laveen school of their choice. The process for registering is the same as above for non-resident families. The following guidelines also apply.
- Mid-year applications are accepted each year until May 1 of the current school year
- Enrollment is based on available space.
- Ten days after school begins, the parent or legal guardian will be notified in writing as to whether the application has been accepted, rejected, or placed on a waiting list.
- The parent or legal guardian of the student is responsible for the student’s transportation.
- Providing false information on the open enrollment form may result in the application being revoked.
