Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know what school my student should attend?
If your student is not yet registered for school, please review the Corvallis School District's school boundary area maps. School registration takes place in person, at your child’s school.  

When can my child register for classes?
Elementary students new to the district may enroll at their boundary area school at any time during regular office hours before school begins. Parents are asked to bring proof of their child's age and address and a record of their immunizations.

Middle and high school students may register according to the posted schedules. To use resources efficiently, registration packets for high school students are not mailed and must be picked up at their school on the following dates.
