    You can move through the form using the “< Prev” and “Next >” buttons. Or if you are on the Review page, click on the underlined field. All your contact information will be visible to you.

    What if I need to make changes to my information?

    If changes need to be made to your contact information, you will need to notify Student Enrollment by phone at (914) 376-8050 or email at studentenrollment@yonkerspublicschools.org or in person.

    I have completed the form, now what?

    Once you have finished entering your information, click “Submit” to process your information.

All on-time applications are treated equally.

    What if I have more than one student in the district in a transition grade? Do I need to do this for each child?

    Yes, you must complete a separate form for each child using the same account. You will need to provide information that is specific for each child. We recommend that you complete and submit one form and then start another – this will allow you to “snap” (or share) selected family information, which saves you time.

    I’m not sure how to answer a question. I don’t understand the question.

    You can contact Student Enrollment by phone at (914) 376-8050 or email at studentenrollment@yonkerspublicschools.org to ask any general questions about the form.
