Welcome to Baldwinsville Central School Central Registration
A parent/guardian is required to complete the pre-registration process online and finalize the process in person for enrollment in our district within three days of entering your online registration. Please follow the directions for the Online Pre-registration system to complete your public school, non-public/private school or homeschool census registration for your student. The pre-registration link is located on the left side top corner for you to begin your session.

Enrollment in our elementary schools is based on your home address. Click on the Attendance Zone List to find which school your child will attend. If you are enrolling a Kindergarten student for the 2024-2025 school year, the student must reach 5 years of age on or before December 1, 2024 to be eligible for Kindergarten. There are no exceptions. If you are enrolling a Universal Pre-Kindergarten student for the 2024-2025 school year, the student must reach 4 years of age on or before December 1, 2024 to be eligible to enter this program for the school year.

For other options post-UPK, and answers to other general questions regarding the Universal Pre-Kindergarten program can be read in our FAQ here.
