IMPORTANT SAFETY UPDATES, District News, and Information

Online School Registration is Open May 2, 2022 for the 2022-2023 School Year PreK, Kinder, and New Students

Online registration is open, beginning Monday, May 2, 2022, for PreK, Kinder, and new students to the district. The registration website link is available on the Deming Public Schools website www.demingps.org, under Registration. We encourage families to look at the site to become acquainted with the required information and documents needed, to complete online registration successfully.  All new elementary students are required to register at their boundary school, based on the student’s current address. Please visit www.demingps.org and choose “Registration” at the top, select “Find My School” on the left hand links to determine which school is your boundary school.

Parents/guardians are not required to re-register their student online if they attended grades K-12 at Deming Public Schools for the 21-22 school year.  Students in PreK must register for Kindergarten. Student returning to PreK must register as well.

If parents/guardians would like to request enrollment at an elementary school outside of their boundary zone, a 501 form must be submitted. After registration is completed at the student’s boundary school, the 501 form should be requested from the boundary school to be completed by the parent/guardian. All new 501 forms will be on hold until the start of the 22-23 SY school year as the district examines available space across all school sites.

All currently enrolled student transfers will need to complete a renewal 501 request. Current 501 transfers on file will be approved for the 22-23 SY. Renewal notifications will be sent out Monday, May 2, 2022.

Please note, transfer requests for Bataan Elementary will not be accepted as Bataan Elementary is at full capacity with current boundary student projections. Students currently attending Bataan on a 501 transfer request will need to complete a renewal 501 request. Only current 501 transfers on file for Bataan will be approved for the 22-23 SY.

After the parent/guardian has registered their student online, verification of documents can occur anytime between Monday, May 2, 2022 and the end of school Friday, May 27, 2022. Parents/guardians may visit their boundary school from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for document verification. Parents/guardians will need to provide the following documents when visiting the school:

  • Student birth certificate
