Our district enrollment process begins with an online enrollment application and concludes by submitting required documents and proof of residency to the school site. Listed below is an "enrollment checklist" to help organize your enrollment documents and familiarize you with the process.
STEP 1 - COMPLETE AN ONLINE ENROLLMENT APPLICATION
If you are enrolling a new student, you must complete this step prior to your meeting with the school office staff. BEGIN THE PROCESS HERE .
STEP 2 - VERIFY YOUR CASTRO VALLEY RESIDENCE
You must be a current resident in the CVUSD boundaries and provide proof of residency.
FILL OUT THE CVUSD Submit form at the school site with ALL of the original required documents:
- Current PG&E bill in your name showing the residence property address (all pages), including service address.
- A current CA Drivers License / ID Card for identification purposes only.
- Any one (1) of the following current bills:
- EBMUD bill
- Waste Management bill
- DMV vehicle registration or vehicle insurance bill
- Telephone bill
Current bills are defined as no more than 2 months old.
If you have special circumstances and are unable to provide any of the residency documentation, please contact the Student Services department for an appointment at 510-537-3000 x1209. Special circumstances may require you to process your residency at the district office.
Shared Residency is when a parent is residing with another district resident seven days a week. Both parties must be present during their residency verification. Print and complete the form. The parent will need to provide two (2) bills proving his/her residency at this address. These items may include phone bill, cable bill, credit card bill, vehicle insurance, payroll stub with name and address, etc.. The parent/guardian's California Driver's License will also be required for identification purposes. The Homeowner/Renter the parent is living with, will need to provide his/her PG&E bill, another bill (e.g. EBMUD, Waste Mgmt. DMV, or telephone), and his/her California Driver's License. It is the parent/guardian responsibility to notify the school secretary/registrar within five school days if a student or family move from this address. Falsification of residency will result in liability for any excess costs incurred by the District. Additionally, the student will be immediately disenrolled and referred to his/her resident district for enrollment.
STEP 3 - CALL THE SCHOOL SITE TO SCHEDULE AN ENROLLMENT APPOINTMENT
Please be sure to bring the following supporting documents with you to finalize your student's enrollment:

To do this you will need to input your child's name, telephone number, permanent I.D. number and a Verification Pass Code (both numbers will be provided by the school's office).
Residency verification must be completed for TK and Kindergarten, all students who are NEW to the district, all continuing 6th grade and 9th grade students, and any family who moves throughout the year. You must submit original documents. Online printouts of current bills with your name and address are acceptable. Current bills are defined as no more than 2 months old. Post office box addresses will not be accepted. Incomplete residencies will not be accepted. Complete the residency verification at the school site.
