CCPS has an online registration system in place for new students. At the time of registration, parents will need to know what school their child is zoned to attend. School zones are based on a child’s physical home address. CCPS has a school locator program on its website. Parents can use the system to review the school zones for their address. School Locator is available on the CCPS website here.
Parents with students already enrolled in CCPS can register another child for school using an active ParentVue account. The ParentVue login page is posted on the CCPS website here. An Online Registration menu tab option is in the upper right-hand corner of ParentVue. Click on the Online Registration tab to begin registration.
Parents new to the school system need to create a ParentVue account to register online and have a valid email address. Click here to create an account and start the registration process. New users must select the Create a New Account option.
The online registration process requires users to upload document copies and/or images of required documents. Once a registration is submitted by a parent, a CCPS staff member will review for required information and contact the parent if any information is missing.
More information about the online registration process is posted on the CCPS website at https://www.ccboe.com/index.php/online-registration-ql. Parents with questions can also call 301-932-6610 and ask to speak to someone about online registration.
