• Welcome

    All students new to the Framingham Public Schools are required to register at the Parent Information Center. Registration is by appointment only.  Please call the Parent Information Center at 508-424-3420 for appointment availability. 

    New Student Registration is now online!
         Starting November 1st, 2019

    For the 2018-19 school year, Framingham Public Schools will be using an online system called Registration Gateway for student registration. 

    • All new students (Kindergarten-12th Grade) in 2018-19 will enroll through a link on the District's Website  https://registration.framingham.k12.ma.us 
    • The option to upload copies of required documents (i.e. proof of residency, student’s last report card, withdrawal form from the previous school, immunization records, and birth certificate) is available to save time. 
    • Additionally, if you are registering multiple students, information in the first form will be pre-loaded into the second registration form when you use the link on the Submission Confirmation page to register another student.

    Frequently Asked Questions about the Online Registration. 

    1. What information will this system collect?
      Student Information (name, DOB, demographic information, primary contact phone number)
      Parent/Legal Guardian Information
      Emergency Contact
      Parent/Legal Guardian Agreements
      (health information policy, medical information release, responsible use procedures and terms and conditions for device usage, release of school records authorization)
      Electronic signature acknowledging all information is correct  
    2. Will I be able to register multiple students at once?
      Yes. Once you have completed the first registration, you will be given the option (on the Confirmation page) to start another registration form. Selected family information will prepopulate the form for your additional child(dren). This means that once you enter your name, address, emergency contacts, etc., for one child, it will link to your next child’s form without having to re-enter the data. You will still be required to provide information that is specific for each child. 
    3. What should I do if I do not have an email address?
      To access the registration form, the parent/guardian must create an account to be associated with the student’s form. An email address is required as it will ensure that you receive a confirmation email after the form has been completed. Several online companies allow you to sign up for a free email account. If you would like to set up an email account and need help, the Parent Information Center has computers available and the staff can help you. Alternatively, a cell phone number may be used to create the account.
    4. What should I do if I do not have Internet access?
      If you do not have access to the internet at home, local library, or other location, the Parent Information Center can provide access to a computer to register online. 
    5. What happens if I need to stop before I am finished completing the form?
      If you need to stop before you have completed the registration form, click on the “Save and Logout” button at the top right of the screen. Your information will be saved in your account for the next time you return and login. 
    6. Who do I call with questions or for assistance?
      On each page of the online registration form, there is a link (“Contact Us”) at the bottom which will open the Parent Info Help Center where you can search for information related to your issue. For assistance with the forms you are completing, contact the Parent Information Center at 508-424-3420. 
    7. I’ve completed the form, now what?
      Once you have finished entering your information, click Submit. This will send all of the information you’ve entered to the Parent Information Center.  After we processed your information, we will contact you to schedule the in-person registration appointment at the center. 
    8. How do I make changes to my student’s information after I have completed and submitted the online form?
      Once you have submitted the form, you will no longer be able to edit your student’s information. Please contact the Parent Information Center for assistance.

    Enrollment in the Framingham Public Schools is contingent upon residency. You must be a resident of Framingham in order to attend the Framingham Public Schools. Before a student is registered for Framingham Public Schools and can begin school, his/her parent or legal guardian must provide proof of primary residence. Temporary residence in the City of Framingham for the sole purpose of attending the Framingham Public Schools will not be considered residency.  Because residency may change for students and their families during the course of the academic year and a student’s educational life, the Framingham Public Schools may continue to verify residency after the commencement of classes.

    Residency Requirements

    Testing: Students whose first language is not English will be tested at the time of their appointment at the Parent Information Center to determine their English proficiency. Program recommendation will be made according to the test results. Testers will discuss results with parents.
