Welcome to Batavia City Schools!
In an effort to make things more consistent and streamlined, ALL registrations are processed by the Instructional Services Office at Batavia City Schools. Before a student can be enrolled in the Batavia City School District, an enrollment packet must be filled out completely and submitted with all the necessary documents.
During the current school closure (due to the COVID-19 crisis), submitting registration documents can be accomplished in the following ways.
ELECTRONICALLY: You can complete your child’s registration entirely digitally using our website (to pre-register) and creating digital (PDF or JPEG) copies of necessary documents. that can then be emailed to the Instructional Services Office at Registration@bataviacsd.org. Pictures taken by a smart phone are acceptable, but please be sure that they are clearly readable and show the document completely.
HARD COPY COMPLETED BY HAND: A printable version of the registration paperwork is available on this website; it can be printed and completed by hand. Hard copies of the registration packets can also be picked up/dropped off at our “Grab & Go Meal” distribution sites at Jackson Primary School (411 South Jackson Street) and John Kennedy Intermediate School (166 Vine Street) from 9-11 AM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
