​​​All students, new and returning, must be registered with their assigned school.

Newly enrolled students:  After enrolling with RPS 205, you will need to complete and submit a Registration packet with your student's assigned school(s) before the student(s) attends school.  

Returning students:  Parent/Guardian must complete and submit a Registration for each student. This may be completed during the Spring Registration Drive or during Summer Registration by mail. Parent/Guardian does NOT need to attend in-person registration unless they need to pay for any extra fees that aren’t waived, such as parking permits at a high school or to purchase a yearbook.

If you have questions, please contact your school’s main office staff.

Families in Transition

Families who live in transitional housing can re-enroll in FIT services. Students in the FIT program will receive a registration packet when they re-enroll in the FIT Program. If you secure your own housing, a registration packet will be made available at your home school, or request one by emailing 


Students need a health exam/physical within one year of starting kindergarten, sixth grade and ninth grade -- or when entering an Illinois school system for the first time. All other high school students need a sports physical if they plan to participate in sports. Sports physicals are good for 13 months and do not replace the required ninth grade physical. Completed physical paperwork can be included in registration packets. 

What’s next

School’s main office staff will share more specific details about classroom assignments, any fines that need to be paid from the current school year, and help students with medication connect with the school nurse.
