We have an outstanding tradition of excellence in education, and we warmly welcome you and your children to BHUSD. Below are instructions on how to confirm your residency within the boundaries of BHUSD and how to enroll your children in school.

The District will not solicit or collect information or documents regarding the citizenship or immigration status of students or their family members for the purpose of determining residency within the District.

This helps us to know what their age eligibility is for the grade they will be entering. Remember, if you are moving from outside of California or outside of the US you may be coming from a school that has different age grade eligibility.


Do you need proof of their date of birth?

  • Yes, please collect your child's birth certificate or passport. Birth certificates are preferred.

The district's transitional kindergarten (TK) program shall admit children whose fifth birthday occurs by June 30th.
