West Ada Enrollment Fair

Families moving into West Ada School District have the unique opportunity of enrolling their children in school on July 24 and 25 when the district hosts its second annual summer enrollment fair. These exclusive days offer families face time with instruction and care team providers as well as the ability to take care of registration paperwork for all of their children in one convenient location.

“Whether a family has one or multiple children in our schools, trekking all over our community during summer break, and potentially in the middle of a home move, is not ideal. This event streamlines the enrollment process for our new families and provides staff dedicated time for assisting them as they settle in,” Staci Low, summer enrollment fair organizer and director of career and technical education explained.

Families should dig out a few pieces of paperwork from their moving boxes in preparation for the event, including:

  • Original/official birth certificate or passport
  • Hard copy of immunization record with proof of required immunizations
  • Proof of address (such as current power, gas or city utilities bill, or housing contract)
  • Incoming grades 7-9 bring last report card
  • Incoming grades 10-12 bring an unofficial transcript
  • Copy of IEP/504, if applicable
  • Copy of legal custodial paperwork, if applicable

“Our school nurses, transportation and nutrition teams are available for taking information and answering questions,” Low shared. “Families may also set up their child’s learning and care plans with federal programs and special services staff, and secondary school counselors are available for preparing student schedules.”

More than 800 students enrolled in West Ada School District during the one-day event last summer. School leaders expect similar attendance at this year’s event – now split over two days and in the district’s main office and training center.

The West Ada School District training center is located at 1303 E. Central Dr. Meridian, Idaho 83642. For families new to West Ada unable to attend this enrollment fair, please call your children’s schools for information on summer office hours.
