Sacramento City Unified School District is the 10th largest public K-12 district in California and one of the oldest in the western United States (established in 1854). SCUSD serves 43,000 students on 76 campuses, which include quality neighborhood schools and sought-after specialty programs.
As an open enrollment district, parents have many choices for the children’s education.
The Enrollment Center is currently open to the public and following the current CDC guidelines we have enacted the following processes. Please note that some things have changed.
Online Registration Forms
The Enrollment Center will continue to offer 24 hour online registration forms for new, existing and previous students.
We have an in-person information/support desk that is open Monday through Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (closed 11:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. for lunch). This staff member is there to provide direct information and support for enrollment information among other supports.
We now have our self-service lobby hours extended. New hours are Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. where you can pick up and drop off hard copy applications.
Please note we can only allow 5 people at a time to be within the lobby area, if the lobby is at capacity we kindly ask you to wait outside until a space allows.
Please DO NOT provide us with original documents – submit copies only. Due to COVID-19 concerns, we will not be able to make copies for our parents. Please come readily equipped with your own copies.
All applications are process in the order they are received.
Our online and in-person drop box processing times can range from 5-10 days. A technician will contact you when your application is processed.

Sacramento City Unified School District offers each student who resides permanently within our district’s boundaries the opportunity to enroll in schools or programs within the district, when space is available.
Neighborhood Schools & Attendance Areas
Elementary, middle, and high school students are assigned to a designated neighborhood school based on where the student lives, as long as the school offers the services the student needs.
Each neighborhood school has a defined geographic boundary and is intended to serve the students who live within that geographic boundary.
To determine your child’s school of attendance based on school boundary, please use our School Finder tool.
If you are interested in applying for enrollment to a different school in our district, you can apply through our Open Enrollment (K-8) or High School Specialty Program processes.
