      A birth certificate is required for students entering kindergarten or first grade who haven't been enrolled in the district before.
    • Proof of Immunization
    • Transcripts or Report Cards

    • Proof of Current Physical Address

  • How old must students be to attend school?
    State law requires every child between 7 and 16 years of age to attend school. Any child who will be 5 years old on or before September 1 is eligible to attend kindergarten. Children must be 6 years old on or before September 1 to attend first grade. Learn more about kindergarten and first grade eligibility.

    How do I know what school to attend?

    Transportation zones are established for each school, which determines bus routes and attendance areas. Students within a transportation zone have preference for enrollment at the school in that zone. Find your home schools and bus stops at:
    Students may attend a school outside their transportation zone if space is available, and if they provide their own transportation.
    For questions on transportation zones, please call the district Transportation Office at 452-2000, x11351.

    Can my child attend a different school?

    You may request to attend a different school from the one whose boundaries you live in. However, students can attend an out-of-attendance area school only if there is room, and enrollment it is not guaranteed from year to year. Just because your child was granted an exception one year, does not mean he or she will be able to attend the out-of-attendance area school the next year. Learn more about out-of-attendance area enrollment.

    Will my child ride a bus to school?

    Bus transportation is provided for students living over 1.5 miles from school.
    Please call Admin Center Transportation Department at (907) 452-2000 option 4 for the most current bus schedule information or to request new bus stops. We are here all summer! Don't wait to check or add your stop!

    When does school start?

    School generally starts the third week in August and ends the third week in May. The first semester ends before the two-week winter break and there is a one week break in March.

    Can my student participate in sports right away?

    Students MUST have a sports physical (available from your health provider) BEFORE participating in a practice and students must participate in ten practices before playing a game. Football and some other sports start before school starts in Fairbanks because of our short outdoor season. It is vital students wanting to participate in these sports have a physical.

    What services are provided for gifted students?

    The district's Extended Learning Program (ELP) provides teachers at the elementary and middle school levels. A wide range of Advanced Placement classes are offered at high schools for all students. Although not every class is offered at every school, approximately 25 Advanced Placement courses are offered throughout the district. Check out the high school course catalog for more information or individual school course catalogs for specific school offerings.

    What kind of special education services are available?

    The Special Education department provides assessment and direct services to students with fifteen different exceptionalities, and secondary services such as transportation, translators, occupational and physical therapy, counseling, etc.

    How can I get involved in the schools?

    You would not believe how welcome family members are in Fairbanks schools. All schools welcome volunteers to help in the classroom, tutor students, share their culture and careers, chaperone trips, and share in various ways in the school life of our students. Did you know service members can earn credit when they volunteer in the school? Contact your local school for more information.
