Please note, if your school of residence is at capacity in the grade level you’re registering for, then your student can be placed at the school that has space available. Due to reconfiguration within our district, we have two elementary schools (TK-5th.) Horace Mann and Hawthorne, one middle school (6th.-8th.) Beverly Vista, and one high school (9th.-12th.) Beverly Hills High. 

 

STEP 1 -ONLINE PRE-ENROLLMENT-

To register a new or returning student, you must have a valid address within the Beverly Hills Unified School District attendance area OR qualify for an Interdistrict transfer permit by being currently employed for the City of Beverly Hills or the Beverly Hills Unified School District. Verification of residence or employment will be required after you complete the Online Pre-Enrollment step.

Enrollment will be finalized once step 3 is completed in person at the Student Services Department, Child Welfare and Attendance Office located at 255 S. Lasky Drive, 3rd. floor, Beverly Hills, CA 90211.

NOTE: In the event a utility service connection is used as proof of residency, then a utility bill must be provided within 45 days to assure continued enrollment. 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. 

The District will investigate any cases where there may be reason to believe that a student does not comply with residency requirements for school attendance (i.e., returned mail, excessive absences/chronic absenteeism/truancy), that the parent/guardian has provided false information with respect to residency, or that the information provided at the time of enrollment is no longer current or accurate. A trained District employee may conduct the investigation or a private investigator employed by the District, and may include the examination of records, including public records, and/or interviews of persons who may have knowledge of the student’s residency. The investigation will not include the surreptitious collection of photographic or video-graphic images of persons or places subject to the investigation. However, the use of technology is not prohibited if done in open and public view. District will take appropriate actions pending the results of the investigation

If the District determines that the student does not reside in District, the parent/guardian will receive a dis-enrollment letter and the Inter-District/Intra-District Attendance Appeal Form. Parent/guardian has 10 days to submit a written appeal from the date of the dis-enrollment letter. Once the district receives the written appeal, the District will have 10 days to respond in writing to the parent/guardian’s request. The Superintendent or designee response is final.
