To view a map of the elementary attendance areas, please visit www.uaschools.org/OurSchools.aspx

Please note that Wickliffe Progressive Elementary School is a school of choice and does not have an attendance boundary as it offers the Informal Program to students living in the Greensview, Tremont and Windermere attendance areas. Barrington Elementary School offers both the informal and contemporary instruction models to students living in that attendance area. 

Step 2: Online registration forms

Complete the online registration forms available at www.uaschools.org beginning Monday, February 10. 
 
Please set aside approximately 45 minutes for this step.  Before you begin, you’ll want to gather the student’s family medical history and contact information for trusted, local adults the school could contact if parents and guardians cannot be reached during an emergency.

Step 3: Finalize registration

Finalize your student’s registration at the UA Schools Graf Center. As you complete the online registration forms (Step 2 above), you will be prompted in Form 9 to schedule a meeting at the UA Schools Graf Center, 2020 Builders Place. For your appointment, please bring with you the following documentation:
  • Child’s birth certificate, baptismal certificate or passport.
  • Proof of residency (a deed or lease agreement showing the name of the residential parent/guardian or visit www.uaschools.org/StudentRegistrationInformation.aspx to view additional document options).
  • Custodial papers (current copy of divorce decree and shared parenting plan), if applicable.
  • Proof of immunization.

If you have any questions before your appointment, please email enrollment@uaschools.org.

During this meeting at the Graf Center, you will schedule a kindergarten screening appointment at your child’s school.

Step 4: Kindergarten screening

Important Information

Prospective Wickliffe and Windermere families:
For the 2020-2021 school year, Wickliffe and Windermere elementary schools will be sharing the Wickliffe campus due to construction at the Windermere site. The school day for Wickliffe students will run from 9:10 a.m. until 3:50 p.m. during the 2020-2021 school year. The school day for Windermere students will run from 8:10 a.m. until 2:50 p.m.
 
Morning/afternoon placement preference:
During the online registration process, families will be given the option to indicate a preference for morning or afternoon kindergarten. While we cannot guarantee placement preference, families who complete online registration within the February 10 - February 28 priority window and complete their appointment at the Graf Center (Step 3) within the February 11 - March 3 priority window will have their preference for morning or afternoon placement considered and, in the event of high demand, will be entered into a lottery for their preferred placement. Please understand that to maintain balanced classes, the school principal will make final placement decisions.  Families will be notified of their placement on or before March 12.
