Don’t delay! Enroll in Chesterfield schools today

Posted on

The first week of school is rapidly approaching. If your child isn’t registered yet, now is the time. Doing so today will help your child have the best possible start to the new school year and ensure your child’s schedule is in place.

Registering now provides the school division with a more accurate student enrollment count that allows schools have the appropriate number of teachers in place on the first day of school. Registering sooner rather than later helps middle and high school students as well. Electives, Advanced Placement, and dual enrollment classes tend to fill up quickly.
