    The North Santiam School District has transitioned to using the online software Registar ® as part of the enrollment process. This system enables parents and guardians to efficiently update information for returning students or enter the necessary  information to enroll. The process has seven steps but not all will apply to every student. Printed registration materials are available upon request at all schools. Registar was formatted to work best on a computer or chromebook but users can still access it with smartphones and tablets although they may not experience the same ease of use. Computers are available at all schools and the district office by appointment and only during regular business hours. 

    Please note that proof of residence is required when enrolling in NSSD for the first time. Proof of age and documentation of at least one round of required vaccinations is also required for Kindergarten registration.

    To begin the process to register online, please choose the applicable school. While you are able to register all your students in Registar at the same time, you will need to visit each school separately to complete needed supplemental forms. 


    If you are new to the area, you may want to confirm your address is within the NSSD boundaries and if so, which campus is considered your "resident school". You can click on the map below to view the NSSD boundaries map.

    If you live inside these boundaries but wish your student to attend another school district or a different school within NSSD OR you live outside our boundaries but wish to attend NSSD, please contact the Superintendent's office at 503-769-4928 or at communications@nsantiam.k12.or.us. Students residing outside NSSD will also need to obtain a release from their resident school district. 

    Transfers into or within NSSD may be limited due to class sizes at your school of choice. If that occurs, a second school choice will be offered. Likewise, it is advisable to contact an outside school district first to ensure they are accepting transfers into their district at your student's grade level(s). 

    NSSD is enforcing the 3% cap allowed by law which allows school districts to restrict the release of it's students to enroll in virtual public charter schools once 3% of it's resident student population is enrolled in these types of institutions (such as OR Connections Academy, Fossil oSilvies River Charter School).  The number of NSSD resident students enrolled in virtual charters, as of the start of the 2022-23 school year, is hovering right at the percentage cap. To determine if students are being released currently, please email the address or call the number listed above.  This does not apply to parents wishing to homeschool their students using their own curriculum. Those wishing to do so must register with the Willamette Education Service District at WESD.

    NSSD has its own virtual learning platform called Options Academy for grades K-12! Click HERE for more details.
