Online Registration for the 2019-2020 School Year
General information

Union School District's 8 schools serve the communities of Los Gatos and San Jose. Our teachers educate more than 5,600 children from preschool to eighth grade.
If your child is new to Union Elementary School District, you will need to register him or her to attend one of our schools. Use the School Finder link above to locate your school of residence ("home school").
To register, parents or guardians will need to first complete the InfoSnap online school registration (at unionsd.org), then bring all proofs of residency, the child's birth certificate and immunization records to the home school to complete enrollment.

Depending on your child's birthdate, he or she may qualify for Transitional Kindergarten (TK), an exciting grade taught by a select group of passionate teachers. 

Students who live outside the Union Elementary School District boundaries and wish to attend USD schools may do so on an approved Inter-district Transfer. Contact your home school district first to apply for an Inter-district Transfer to USD. 


Incoming Elementary and Middle School Students

All incoming elementary and middle school students are assigned to their home school (the school that corresponds to the student's home address within the Union School District designated boundaries). Parents or Guardians who wish to request a school within USD, other than the child's school of residence, must first register with their school of residence and then complete an Intra-district Transfer request form which is available at the Union School District Office. Intra-district Transfer requests are due at the District Office by March 1st for the upcoming school year. Transfer requests received after March 1st are placed on a waiting list in the order in which they are received. School placement is determined the week prior to the beginning of school and may be as late as the first week of school. All transfers are approved on a space-available basis. Other considerations include the student’s attendance record, behavior and academic progress. 

Middle School Students: In keeping with Board policy, students who completed 5th grade in an Union School District elementary school will be automatically assigned to the middle school that corresponds to their home address. If you prefer a  middle school other than your home school, you will need to make an Intra-district Transfer request through the District Office.
