Welcome to online registration for the 2019-20 school year!

  • We're glad you're here to either enroll your child for the first time, or verify your existing student’s information. (Existing Federal Way Public School families who were enrolled the previous school year need to complete yearly verification of their information for all active FWPS students.)  

    Online registration opens August 1, 2019. 

    Online registration must be completed for elementary scholars prior to the first day of school. For secondary students, this must be completed prior to the school’s schedule pick-up event. 

    Families can also register in person at the child’s school during regular hours using a school provided laptop.
