Registration Information

The Appleton Area School District requires enrollment for new students (4K - grade 12) and annual registration for existing students (KG - grade 12). Enrollment for the upcoming school year for new students begins in July. Annual registration for existing students begins at the end of May.

What do I need for Enrollment/Registration?

The parent/guardian should be prepared to complete an online application containing demographic information, emergency contact phone numbers, name and phone number of your child’s doctor, medical information, and language information.

After your child’s online application has been submitted, you may be asked to provide a birth certificate and immunization records to your student’s school.

Freshmen Orientation
Incoming freshmen and new upperclassmen will have the entire morning of the first day of school to themselves to get to know the building, teachers and courses.

Student Identification

Because student photos will be taken for the yearbook and school ID, students must wear clothing that follows the school dress code. Students choosing not to wear appropriate clothing will not get their pictures taken. As has become the tradition, seniors sometimes dress up and make their ID’s look interesting.

Any props/make up/or funny faces which make identifying the student difficult will not be allowed.

Student Fee Plan Explanations

Six fee option plans are available. All checks should be made out to Appleton East High School for the exact amount. If families are enrolling more than one student, amounts can be combined into one check.

  • Plan A $116.00 - Enrollment and text materials. Admission to all home school sponsored athletic events, school sponsored dramatic productions and concerts. One copy of the 2015-2016 Lantern (school yearbook).

Cap and Gown Fee

Seniors may use the cap and gown from an older sibling. Remember, boys wear blue gowns/red stoles, and girls wear red gowns/blue stoles.

Fee Waivers

Parents/students who are interested in a fee waiver may obtain information and an application form in the East administration office. These forms could be picked up before registration and returned at registration. Otherwise, forms will be available at registration. Parents/students who received a fee waiver for the previous school year are reminded that a new waiver must be submitted for the coming school year. Fee waivers include only matriculation, text materials, breakfast, and lunch costs. Yearbooks and admission fees are not included.

Participation Fees

Students who choose to participate in interscholastic sports, robotics, debate, forensics, drama, cheerleading or poms/dance will be required to pay a participation fee of $50.00 for each activity. This fee will be paid directly to the administration office and should be paid prior to the activity practice sessions. There is a $150.00 student yearly cap, a $200.00 family cap, and a $250.00 joint middle/high school family cap.

Classroom Fees

Some classes require a fee to cover costs of that particular class. Those fees will be collected by the teacher at the start of the school year.

First Agency Insurance

The District will continue to work with First Agency, Inc. to provide parents/guardians with an opportunity to purchase Student Accident Insurance for the 2015-2016 school year. Beginning with last year, First Agency, Inc. decided to discontinue the practice of mailing brochures to the schools. Their brochure/enrollment form is available online at www.1stAgency.com, where parents/guardians can print the PDF and enroll through the mail with a check or money order OR they may enroll online with a credit card.

New Families

New families need to notify the office of their intent to enroll their student(s) at any point prior to and throughout the summer. After new families have notified us of their students’ enrollment, and have filled out enrollment paperwork, they may go through the line as existing families would to register their students.

The parent or guardian should be prepared to fill out an enrollment form, home language form, student immunization record, health, and emergency cards when registering your child(ren). 

Materials to bring with you when you register include:

  • A birth certificate for the child(ren) being registered into Kindergarten
  • Verification of address; a utility bill, bank statement, or home phone bill with your correct and current address, or rental agreement
  • Immunization records for the child(ren) being registered

Registering Later in the Year

After registration dates and times have passed, families (new or existing) can come to the office and take care of enrollment and registration anytime during office hours.

As always, thank you for considering the Appleton Area School District for the education of your child(ren). If you have any other questions/concerns or would like additional information about enrolling your student(s) in the Appleton Area School District or are unsure which school your child(ren) will attend, please contact Attendance & Enrollment Office at (920) 832-6116.
