Completing your student's enrollment application through the district's Online Registration (OLR) is the first step in the process for entering a SUHSD school. If you are interested in having your student request a transfer to TIDE, EPAA, or a school other than the one assigned by your home address, submit an Open Enrollment request when completing Online Registration (due by February 1, 2023). Once you have completed OLR, the District's staff will be in contact to verify the status of the registration. Depending upon the time of year that you submit your student's enrollment application, responses may take 1-10 business days to complete. If you need assistance, please scroll to the bottom of the page.
