Schools of Choice Kindergarten Registration

Welcome to Champaign Schools!

If you did not register your student by March 29, you have missed the Choice assignment period, but you can still register at the Schools of Choice office after April 9 at 402 N. Randolph Street, Champaign; 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday (this office will have moved from 1103 N. Neil Street). Students registered after the registration period will be assigned to schools according to seat availability. 

Please bring two items as proof of residence:

Driver’s License or State ID
Voter’s Registration Card
Lease or Mortgage Document
Power, Water, Internet or Cable Bill (Current month)

If you have questions, please call the Schools of Choice office at 217-351-3701 or email


How to register:

To register for kindergarten, students must be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2018. Even if your student already has an older sibling in the district, they should register during this time. The steps below will walk you through the Schools of Choice registration process for students entering kindergarten and those new to the district entering grades 1-8. These steps and more information about each school are also included in the 2018-19 Schools of Choice Registration Guide. If your student is new to the district entering grades 9-12, contact the Mellon Administrative Center at 217-351-3800.
