Find Your School

The first step to registration is to verify that you live in the NUSD boundary and to determine the student’s NUSD boundary school. This can be done by visiting the School Locator tool to determine your child’s school of attendance based on school boundaries.

  • If you live outside the NUSD Boundaries you need to apply for an Interdistrict Transfer.
  • If you live within the NUSD Boundaries but want to transfer to a different school select option 2 below.

Overcrowding and Capacity Issues

When a school is overcrowded, attendance area students may​ ​need to attend another school in the district.​ There is no guarantee that a student will be assigned to his/her attendance area school. In addition, transportation is not provided for general education students unless otherwise noted.  Also, applications to transfer into an NUSD does not guarantee placement into the requested school.  For a complete explanation of the rules regarding school capacity issues, go HERE. 

Preschool, Transitional Kindergarten, or Kindergarten?

Transitional Kindergarten: Students who are born on or before September 1, 2013 meet the age eligibility to attend Kindergarten.  Students whose birthdays are between September 2- December 2, 2013 are eligible for Transitional Kindergarten.  Do not complete online registration or a paper registration packet for students born after December 2, 2013.  Instead, review the Natomas School Readiness Preschool Application HERE.
