  • Step 1 – Go to the district website: www.svusd and select Register Now at the top right of the page.
  • Step 2 – Confirm that Foothill Ranch is your assigned school and make sure you are registering for the 21-22 school year (see drop down). 
  • Step 3 - Follow the prompts, entering all data related to your student. Please do not use all caps and all the immunizations need to be entered. This will take 30 to 45 minutes and you will need your emergency contact phone numbers handy.
  • Step 4 - Make sure you print a copy, sign and scan the Enrollment Confirmation to the school with the other required supporting documentation. 

If you are coming from another SVUSD school, please call the school office as you will need to complete an SVUSD Student Registration form (front and back). Be sure to complete and sign the back of this form.

This is notarized (or signed in front of an SVUSD employee with a driver’s license provided for ID) and copies of their utility bills are required. This form is available from the district website under Resources, All Forms, Parent/Student. A utility bill is required to show you occupy the residence.

You can still register and we will consider their registration to be conditionally complete. You will need to turn in their updated immunization record before school starts.  No students will be able to come to school without completed immunizations.
