Enrollment

All DCPS buildings are currently closed to  help mitigate the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in our region. Due to this pandemic, DCPS is launching an electronic submission process for SY20-21 enrollment season.

The 20-21SY enrollment season is here. Enroll in Aiton Elementary today! Please see below for guidance in completing the online enrollment process:

All families should complete the steps below to enroll in DCPS for School Year 2020-2021:
1. Read the cover letter in full: The cover letter includes important information about how to complete enrollment and what documents are needed to submit your SY20-21 enrollment packet.

2. Fill in all required and applicable information requested.
  • There are 7 (seven) pages you must read and complete.
  • All required information is noted by an asterisk (*).
  • Do not select the SignatureHere options located on the forms until you have completely finished reviewing and completing all the forms. You must finish reviewing and completing all 7 (seven) pages before you can sign.
  • If you do not have time to finish completing the packet, you can select the Save and Continue Later option located at the bottom banner of the screen. It will prompt you to create an account with SeamlessDocs.
3. Once you have completed all the pages, select the Submit and Sign button located on the banner at the bottom of the screen.

4. You will be asked to upload applicable attachments.
  • New students must submit one proof of age. Acceptable proof of age document examples include a birth certificate, hospital records, previous school records, passport, or baptismal certificate.
  • All DC residents must prove residency. Acceptable proof of DC residency documentation can be found here.
  • We encourage you to have all your documentation ready for uploading prior to beginning to complete the packet.
  • Documents can be uploaded in multiple formats, including pictures.
5. Follow the prompts for creating your electronic signature and apply your signature to the required 6 (six) places throughout the packet.
  • Please note that you will need to check the checkmark of the following statement provided in English: “I agree to electronically sign and to create a legally binding contract between the other party and myself, or the entity I am authorized to represent ”
6. Once you have applied your signature to all the required forms, select Finalize and Submit.

7. You will be asked Who Else Needs to Sign this Document, then select the school in which you are completing enrollment from the drop-down menu and press Continue to submit the enrollment packet.

Once submitted, you will receive a copy of your submitted packet. The school will then review your submission, follow-up with you as needed, and sign the packet, which signifies that enrollment is complete. You will then receive another email with a copy of the packet signed by your school. Your enrollment will not be considered final until the school official signs your forms and you receive an email confirming this has happened. Please note the information collected in this platform will only be used for the purposes of enrollment.
