Students assigned in that round will receive assignment notifications by the end of March. The priority registration period for students entering K2 and all other grades runs from February 7 - April 1. Families will be notified of their assignment by the end of May.
To register your student for Boston Public Schools for the current or the upcoming school year, you can pre-register online and schedule an appointment to complete the process with one of our registration specialists either through an in-person or a virtual appointment.

You can also register in-person at our Welcome Centers. All 4 Welcome Centers (Roxbury, Dorchester, Roslindale, and East Boston) are now open for in-person visits. In an effort to keep all of our families safe and to limit exposure to COVID-19, school registration will be completed by appointment only.

The Roxbury, Dorchester, and Roslindale Welcome Centers are open Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. The East Boston Welcome Center has the same hours, but is only open on Monday and Tuesday. (They are also open on Wednesdays in the months of January and August).

Please note that due to the Covid-19 pandemic and associated data discontinuities, there is no 2021 Accountability data, which is one of the key inputs in the School Quality Framework (SQF) tiers. Therefore we will continue to utilize the most recent pre-pandemic School Quality tiers from Fall 2019 for school choice purposes.
