The information below pertains to South Pasadena residents only. Working in South Pasadena and property ownership without actual occupation/residency does not constitute residency. Families must reside in South Pasadena before they can register their child into SPUSD.
Please be aware that as a resident of South Pasadena, your children are guaranteed a spot in one of our three elementary schools; student placement is determined within each attendance area school by date and time of registration. After New Family Registration takes place in March, and all data has been entered into the computer, three Individual lotteries for students entering grades TK/K-5 will take place on MAY 6, 2022 at 3:30 p.m. at the District Office Boardroom, 1100 El Centro Street, S. Pasadena; one for each school, (if needed), by grade level (as needed), with all the names of students registered during New Family Registration. This lottery will be open to the public. Please do not attend if you are not feeling well. Parents/attendees will be expected to wear a face mask if mask mandates are still in place at that time. Siblings enrolling in grades TK/K-5 are given priority registration and are not a part of the lottery process. If you are unable to attend the May 6 New Family Lottery, you may call your home school or the Office of Instruction after 9 a.m. on Monday, May 9th, 2022 to find out your child's lottery number. Please be aware that as a resident of South Pasadena, your children are guaranteed a spot in one of our three elementary schools; the lottery is used to place students who live in each school's attendance area. A Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) handout will be uploaded below after the lottery to help parents interpret their lottery number and to understand the process of student placement.
After March 18, 2022, student placement is determined at each school by date and time of registration. For additional information about the school district, please visit the "District Policies" option, then "General Info about SPUSD" option.
