Registration Information


For back-to-school forms, log in with your child's student ID as your username, and his/her birthdate (in MMDDYY format - so a birthdate of May 23, 2013 would be 052313) as password. Please contact your child's school with questions related to your student's ID or if you have problems logging in. Back-to-school forms do not open until August 1 for the new school year.

Thank you for considering Newark City Schools. To help ensure that schools and students are well prepared for the first day of school, parents are encouraged to register their child or children as soon as possible. Doing so helps our schools and teachers be equipped and ready to make each student's first day pleasant and productive.
