Student Enrollment & Registration
How to Register Your Child
Federal Way Public Schools utilizes an online registration system for all new student registrations.
If you are a new family to our district, you will be creating a ParentVUE account in this process. You must have an active email address to proceed.
If you are an existing parent in our system, you will use your current activated account. If you have not activated your ParentVUE account, please call your school for support. The school will be able to provide you directions for activating your account. During the process of completing the online registration, you will be told which school your student will be attending based on the address information you entered.
The online registration process requires you to enter information about your family, parent/guardians, emergency contacts, student information, and required documents.
Enrolling in Federal Way Public Schools
Registration for the current school year is available online. To enroll online, please select from the "Online Enrollment for New Parents" or "Online Enrollment for Current Parents" links to the left to access online registration system and guidance information. Families can also register in person at the child’s school during regular hours using a school provided laptop.
Enrolling in Kindergarten
Kindergarten registration for the 2018-19 school year opens Tuesday, January 16, 2018. Families with a child who will be five-years-old by Aug. 31, 2018 are welcome to enroll their scholar online, or at school.
To enroll online, visit: www.fwps.org/kiosk, and click on the “Student Registration” link to start the process (make sure to select the 2018-19 school year). Families can also register in person at the child’s school during regular hours. The following documents are recommended at the time of registration:
Your child’s birth certificate
- Proof of your address (rental agreement, purchase agreement, or utility bill)
- Your child’s immunization records for measles, mumps, rubella, polio, diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, hepatitis B, and varicella (chickenpox)
If your child has life threatening conditions such as allergies, asthma, diabetes, and seizure disorders, a meeting will be scheduled with the school nurse to confirm that all medications, medical supplies, and health care provider orders are in place prior to the first day of school.
It is also suggested that parents provide:
- Two emergency contacts, including addresses and phone numbers
- Physician, dentist, and child care addresses and phone numbers
If you miss the registration period, it’s NOT too late to enroll your child. Just go to your neighborhood school during regular school hours.
All schools hold kindergarten "Jumpstart" and "K-Camp" events prior to the start of the school year. Dates for these events can be found here.
Forms you may be asked to complete
Note: Schools often have individualized forms that parents are asked to complete. The list is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all forms from all schools, but it covers the majority of forms required across the district.
