Online registration will be available at the School District's registration page.

NOTE: As of this writing, the District's page says that a Powerschool account is required to register, but our school's registrar confirms that in fact the account will be created at the end of the registration process.

Kindergarten registration for 2020-2021 begins Monday, January 21, 2020 and will continue until the start of school. The school office is open 9AM-12PM and 1PM-3PM for in-person registration and online application verification. Please bring the required documents as well as your photo ID. The school cannot officially register you until they've verified all your documentation. Children must be 5 years old by September 1, 2020, to be enrolled.

Whether you register online from home or in-person at Fairmont, the most important thing to do is to prepare your documentation. Complete verification requirements are available at the District's Enrollment Verification page. Briefly these are:

  • Age Verification
  • Residency Verification (2 documents, in parent's/guardian's name - District Residency Map)
  • Immunization record (per California SB 277)
  • Valid indentification

NOTE: Even if you complete your application online, you must present your documentation in-person at Fairmont. Call 510.231.1448 to make an appointment.

Incomplete materials may delay your registration. If you have any trouble finding resources, we recommend starting on the District Home page.

Registration for Older Students

If your student is totally new to the school district, there is a slightly better starting point for registration, not focused on kindergarten:

If you’re already at Fairmont, you don’t have to re-register. A form goes home in the Spring asking whether you’re intending to return to Fairmont in the Fall, and that is all that’s required to continue your registration.

Finally, if your child is at Fairmont on a transfer from some other school, you will need to renew that transfer annually. The Transfer Office can help with that beginning in February.
