NEW Student Registration

  • new student registration banner

    Coeur d'Alene Public Schools is the heart of our community. We have a student population nearing 11,000, and our district operates 11 elementary schools, three middle schools, three high schools, a developmental preschool and KTEC, a joint professional technical campus with adjoining school districts. We employ some of the most talented teachers in the state, with skilled administrators and staff members who are committed to the success of all students. 


    Only students who are NEW to the Coeur d'Alene School District need to register at their home school. Continuing students do not need to register, but do need to complete the Online Verification Process by August 21. Select this link HERE to access online verification.

    Use our School Site Locator to find your homeschool, by zone. If you have applied to one of our magnet schools, and you have been notified of acceptance, please register at that school. If you have questions about which school you will attend, contact Christine Ballard at (208) 664-8241 or email.


    Student registration will take place in person at each school. We do not currently have an online registration option for new students.
