School Enrollment FAQs
1. Where do I go for school enrollment and what do I need?
School enrollment is centralized for the School District of Beloit. So no matter what school your child will be attending, you can enroll at the Kolak Education Center, 1633 Keeler Avenue, Beloit. The Central Enrollment Office is 8 am to 4:30 pm. We ask that parents have the following at the time of enrollment: child’s birth certificate, child’s immunization record, proof of residency (such as a utility bill), and parent identification (such as a driver’s license).
2. What are school hours and school year calendar?
The school year calendar (containing such dates as first/last day of school, parent-teacher conferences and days of no school) can be found on our back to school page of our website. There you can also find school hours from 4K to high school.
3. How do I change my address and telephone number?
Changes can be made by stopping in at the Central Enrollment Office.
4. Where can I find out information about my child?
The School District of Beloit offers secure, online access (Skyward Family Access) for parents to check their child’s information from lunch balances to grades and attendance. Payments for school lunch can also be made through this system. Parents are also welcome to call, email or stop by their child’s school office with any questions or concerns, in addition to calling or emailing their child’s teachers.
