Parents of children who will be new students at District 54 schools can register this summer at the District 54 office, 524 E. Schaumburg Road, in Schaumburg.
Registration will be held July 10 through Aug. 2 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursdays. In addition, the district office will be open from 4 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 7 through 15.
Parents will need to provide a child's original birth certificate, passport or visa; proof of residency and a few other documents. Please see our registration website for more information: sd54.org/SD54/schoolreg.htm.
Parents are also required to pay a consumable materials fee at registration to cover the cost of workbooks, paper, art supplies and other items used by students. The consumable materials fee is $50 for all students from early childhood through junior high school for the 2012-13 school year. Fees for students in the parent-paid preschool program are included in the tuition costs. A late fee of $15 will be imposed on any payments received after Nov. 15. The late fee will be increased to $25 if no payment is made by Feb. 1 and to $35 if no payment is made by April 1. Children who qualify for the free lunch program will not be charged this fee.
Parents will also be asked to supply the phone numbers of people to be contacted in emergencies (other family members, neighbors and work phone numbers). Parents can also pay for their children's transportation at this time (Transportation Department will be available during day hours only).
Parents wishing to register students new to School District 54 after Aug. 5, should go to their neighborhood school. New student registration will resume at school buildings on Aug. 9.
