Local School Information

Private School
To enroll your child in private school, contact the school directly for necessary documents and procedures.

Public School
To enroll your child in public school for the first time, you need the items listed below to complete your child's registration. You can also visit the Clark County School District Web site at www.ccsd.net for more information.

  1. Proof of Address

Two forms of proof of address are required. These may be in the form of a recent utility bill, rent receipt, residence lease, or sales contract. If you only have a sales contract for the purchase of a new home as proof of address, the school will enroll your child on the condition that one additional proof of address from the above list is submitted within 30 days. (Driver's license, telephone bill, or cable bill are not acceptable).

If you are living with a friend or relative, you must bring a notarized statement signed by you and the owner/renter of the property where you are staying, indicating that it is your place of residence, and a form of your personal identification (driver's License, picture I.D., etc.) which bears the address of the friend or relative you reside with. (Must be presented within 30 days.)

People who are homeless or living in shelters may obtain enrollment information by calling (702) 855-6682.

    2.    Proof of the Child's Identity

This may consist of an original birth certificate, a passport, or a certified birth card (issued by the Clark County Health District or another health district). Copies will not be accepted.
