You will also pick up a registration packet - there are approximately 3 forms that need to be completed in addition to your online registration, and for TK/Kinders/first graders, an incoming physical form and an Oral Health form. The parent portal, my.spusd.net , will be open for 2020-2021 pre-registration of students via the Aeries Internet Registration process, or AIR, beginning February 24, 2020.

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 home school of residence 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 K-5 will take place in early May; one for each school, by grade level, with all the names of students registered during New Family Registration. This lottery is open to the public (i.e., the parents of the students who have registered in March), but you are not required to attend. Siblings enrolling in grades TK/K-5 are given priority registration and are not a part of the lottery process. 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 available at the lottery to help parents interpret their lottery number and to understand the process of student placement.
After the March registration dates, student placement is determined at each school of residence 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.
