2023-2024 Registration

Registration for all grades is now open. Please follow the instructions below to complete the process.

Section 1:
My child is a returning student in RTSD26

Your child is considered a returning student if they have previously attended one of the schools in our district. This includes Pre-K at Prairie Trails or ECDEC at Euclid. Any child who has not attended any of our schools is considered "new" and you should view the instructions in Section 2.

Your child is still considered new even if you have other children in the district.
