Welcome to Elkhart Community Schools! We’re excited you’ll be joining or returning to the ECS family!

If you are NEW to Elkhart Community Schools and NOT an incoming kindergarten student/parent, please register using one of the following links:

  • English Registration (NEW STUDENTS ONLY!)
  • Spanish Registration (NEW STUDENTS ONLY!)
  • Please note: All registrations will require a visit to the school to complete enrollment – please bring your child’s birth certificate, immunization records (immunization requirements), and proof of residency. If you are a new resident in Elkhart and have previously attended a different school, it would be helpful to bring your previous school records with you.

If you are a RETURNING student (who completed the last school year at Elkhart Community Schools), please contact your child’s school to complete annual forms.
