    Second Priority Registration Period Ends on May 29!

    Due to the temporary closure of Boston Public Schools and offices, the deadline for the Second Priority Registration Period for K2 and all other grades has been extended until Friday, May 29. Families that register prior to this date will receive notification of their school assignment by mid-July.
    There are two ways to register:

    By computer: Pre-register online at https://sis.mybps.org and schedule an appointment at https://booknow.appointment-plus.com/8517n4dg/ to complete the process over the phone.

    By phone: Call 617-635-9010 and register with one of our registration specialists.

    Please continue to check our website for updates.

    If you have registered for BPS, and your student needs language testing, the Newcomers Assessment Counseling Center (NACC) will contact you directly to schedule a virtual appointment for your student’s assessment. Appointments are conducted online or by phone. Once your student has completed their language assessment, you will be able to make your school selections. For families that register prior to May 29, assignment notifications will go out by mid-July.

    We are here to serve you, and are happy to offer registration assistance in other languages. For interpretation assistance, please call the Welcome Center at 617-635-9010.
