If you prefer to register your child in person, or do not have access to a computer or mobile device, you may make an appointment with the District Registrar by emailing icsdregistrar@icsd.k12.ny.us or calling 274-2201. The Registrar’s office is located in the IHS Welcome Center, 1401 North Cayuga Street. 

 

IMPORTANT

Open Enrollment: If you would like to apply for your child to attend a different school than their home school, the application is due on June 3. Decisions will be made before the end of June, so attend your zoned home school's orientation and registration. 

Universal Pre-K: If your child attends a UPK program, you will need to register your child for kindergarten in the ICSD. 

ICSD Pre-K: If your child attends pre-k in the ICSD, they are already registered and you do not have to fill out additional paperwork.
