The Enrollment Center is a one-stop resource to service families seeking resources and information when enrolling their children in our district. Families are able to enroll students, submit transfer and open enrollment applications, have questions answered, receive pre-testing services and benefit from the on-site immunization clinic.
The Enrollment Center ensures fairness and equity in the treatment of families and allows central monitoring of enrollment and intra- and inter-district permits. It also provides an opportunity to consolidate services and create a more efficient enrollment process, as Enrollment Center staff are highly trained and knowledgeable in all processes and procedures.
Please be advised that for the safety and security of all children only biological parents or legal guardians may enroll a child into our district. The person enrolling any child will be required to present the following documentation:
CURRENT mortgage/property tax bill or rental/lease agreement*
CURRENT utility bill (SMUD, PG&E, or WATER) with correct name and address*
Proof of birth – original COUNTY ISSUED birth certificate or passport
Individual Education Plan (IEP) if your child is receiving special education services
CURRENT withdrawal grades or transcripts (Grades 7-12)
Guardianship/Custody papers (if applicable)
*If residing with another person (relative, etc.), please complete the Declaration of Residence form and bring a photo ID of the person identified in the utility bill and mortgage/rental lease.
To determine your child’s school of attendance based on school boundary, please call the Enrollment Center personnel at (916) 643-2400 for assistance. When you give your address, they can tell you the elementary, middle and high school assigned to that address, or check out the online Neighborhood School Locator
You may apply for an intra-district permit to have your child attend a school other than their neighborhood school of attendance. Permit transfers are approved based on space availability at the requested school. You can request an intra-district permit transfer from the Enrollment Center or print the attachment below.
*The following must be attached to the intra-district permit: Grades, Attendance Report, & BehaviorReport
If you would like to change schools from outside the district to a school within the Sacramento City Unified School District, you will need to request an inter-district permit transfer from your district of residence. Permit transfers are approved based on space availability at the requested school. A transcript and/or withdrawal grades as well as attendance and behavior reports are required when requesting an inter-district permit transfer into our district.
Students transferring from any continuation, private, charter, independent study or any of the following schools/sites must schedule a re-entry appointment with the Student Hearing & Placement Department to begin the registration process. Please call 643-9425 to make an appointment for re-entry.

Addressing the student achievement gap is a top priority of the Sacramento City Unified School District – and of urban public school districts across the nation. As such, the District has adopted Strategic Plan 2010-14: “Putting Children First” to address issues concerning access to quality teaching and learning for all of our students. The SCUSD Enrollment Center is a key component of the District’s multi-front focus on improving equity within our community.
