For this school year, we are rolling out online registration for the first time. Students who are attending Worth School District 127 schools during the 2019-2020 school year AND have proved that they reside within district boundaries will receive a letter with a special “snapcode” that can be entered in our online registration system to enroll in school.

Later in the summer, registered families will receive an invoice for school fees.

Registration is complete when:

  1. Residency is proved.
  2. Students are enrolled online.
  3. Fees are paid.

This new process is designed to make registration more convenient for our community. If you have not proven residency, please contact the office at (708) 448-2800.
