Student Registration


This information is provided to assist you in registering your child in a Douglas County School. The school district has zoned school attendance areas. You can use our school zone finder tool to find out what school your child should attend or contact the Transportation Department at (775) 782-5194.  Then contact the registrar at the school to enroll your child.  The student registration forms are available by clicking the link below so that you can take the completed forms to the registrar at the school. You will also need to provide the following documents in order to register your child:

  • Original birth certificate or other document suitable as proof of the child's identity (NRS 392.165);
  • Complete and up-to-date immunization records or an Immunization Exemption (NRS 392.435); and
  • Proof of residency (utility bill with street address)

There are two types of variances available:Map

Inter-District variances are used when a family lives in a county other than Douglas, but would like their child to attend a Douglas County school.

Intra-District variances are used when a family resides in Douglas County, but wants their child to attend a school outside of their zone. 

Below you will find the appropriate forms and instructions for both types of variances.

Site principals can approve or deny any variance request.  A new variance application must be completed and submitted each school year.  Generally, school sites begin accepting variance requests during the summer months for the upcoming school year in order to ensure their site has the capability of servicing the variance requests based on enrollment.
