Frequently Asked Questions

How do I enroll my student online?

The Monroe School District uses a New Student Online Enrollment process. For families who currently have a student attending school in the MSD and want to enroll another, please log in to and click on New Student Enrollment to begin the process.

If you are a new or returning family to the MSD, you will go to this link here to begin the process.

If you are a returning family to the MSD and you receive a message stating you cannot use your email address, it is because that email address is still attached to your prior account in our system. Please either contact Student Information at 360-804-2572 to have your email address removed from your prior account or enter a different email address.

How long does it take to complete the Online Enrollment?

The process will take approximately 20 minutes. You can save as you go and do not have to complete it all in one sitting.

What paperwork do I need to enroll my new student?

You will need the following documents ready and will need to upload into the online enrollment application process.

  • Proof of birth date (birth certificate or passport)
  • Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS)
  • Parenting Plan and/or Restraining Order (if applicable)

And, ONE of the following:

  • Home purchase papers or property tax statement
  • Lease/Rental agreement (original)
  • Utility Bill (gas, water, or electric)
  • Notarized verification of proof of residency

Why so much paperwork?

The specific paperwork required for enrollment has not changed in moving from a paper based system to this online system. State law and district policy requires that we verify the birthdate of the enrolling student, the student’s proof of residency, and that the student is fully immunized (or has the appropriate exemption).

When can my student start school?

Enrollment is always open for the current school year. If you are enrolling your student after the first day of school, once the application has been processed and you have taken the required documents to your school, you will be provided with the start date for your student.

What grade should my student be in?

When entering your student’s date of birth, the system will automatically select the appropriate grade level for your student.

Reminder: Children must be five years old by August 31st in order to enroll for Kindergarten.

I want to enroll my student for the next school year, however the form puts the wrong grade in for my student. Why?

The New Student Online Enrollment process assigns students to the grade level that matches their date of birth. In the case of an incoming Kindergartener, the current grade level would be P4. There is no need to update the grade level, as you will have the opportunity to select which school year you are enrolling your student for. Once you select to enroll for the next school year, the system will automatically update the Expected Grade Level to next year’s grade level (in the case of an incoming Kindergartener, the Expected Grade Level will be K1).

How do I know which school my student will attend?

All new students will enroll in their home school. To verify which school your student will attend, please visit our school boundaries page or contact our Transportation Department at 360-804-2650 with your home address to determine your school.

My information is already in Step 2, but some of it is outdated. Why can’t I change it myself?

For families who already have a student actively enrolled in the Monroe School District and are logging in via Family Access, all of your family information will be pulled in to the New Student Online Enrollment form for you. In the event that existing information is incorrect or needs to be updated, only the registrar at your older student’s school can change it. Please contact the school in which you have a student currently enrolled to correct the information. Those corrections will automatically update for all of your children.

After submitting my online application, how long before my student can actually start school?

Please allow up to three school days for the registrar to process an application for the current school year. Once the application has been processed and you have taken the required documents to your school, you will be given the start date for your student.

I’ve submitted an application for next school year.  When will I hear from you again?

Please allow up to 2–3 weeks for the school registrar to process your next year application. You will receive an email when your application is approved.
