FAQ's

Where do I begin?

After reviewing all FAQ's 

Families with students already enrolled in the district should login to Skyward Family Access

New families should select the NEW FAMILY LINK. This will create a Skyward Family Access account.

 

How do I complete the enrollment?

It is important to list the student’s father as the first guardian (if applicable) and the student’s mother as second guardian. Skyward will recognize the family and link all the children in the family.

 

What documents are required for enrolling my child?

All student enrollments require the following:

  • An original, certified Birth Certificate – this must be presented to the building secretary or registrar before the child can start school.
  • Immunization Record – this may be scanned and uploaded to the registration or presented to the building secretary/registrar.
  • Proof of Residence - this may be scanned and uploaded to the registration or presented to the building secretary/registrar.

Additional documents:

  • High school students will need to present a copy of their transcript
  • Students receiving services through Special Education will need to present a copy of the child’s most recent IEP.
  • Custody agreements

School of Choice and Non-Resident Students – What’s the difference?

SOC - The School of Choice window opens on June 1st and with applications due, by the close of business, on June 15th. Once approved, a SOC student is enrolled in Mason Public Schools through graduation, with no additional paperwork required.

                                                 

NR – Non-Resident families may enroll, at any time, with placement granted if space is available. A family seeking Non-Resident enrollment would need to contact the superintendent’s office, from the district in which they reside, for a release. The release is limited for one school year and families must request a new release each year. Non-Resident families may apply for SOC during the application window.
