The August Enrollment period consists of designated days, typically in mid-August, when parents must attend their children's schools to complete the enrollment process. [If you are a continuing student who has been enrolled previously, please click here.]
Based on your address, the attendance area in which you live determines the elementary, middle, and high schools your child or children will attend. More information about MMSD attendance areas can be found here.
Co-Residency refers to a situation in which a family is permanently residing in the home of another family or individual. In these situations, the Co-Residency Form is used as verification of address.
Educational Guardianship refers to a situation in which a student permanently resides with an adult who is not their parent or legal guardian. Upon completing all necessary paperwork, the educational guardian will be granted Rights to Records and be authorized to make educational decisions in the best interest of the student. When a student resides with their parent or legal guardian, and the latter would like to grant educational guardianship to a stepparent, grandparent, aunt/uncle, etc., the parent or legal guardian can complete an "in district" educational guardianship form. In this case, the student's school attendance area is still based on the parent or legal guardian's address.

Online enrollment is done every year in early August prior to the in-school enrollment dates. To complete this, you will need to log in to the online registration application found here. To log in, you will need your Infinite Campus username and password, if you are a parent or guardian of a returning student. Parents and guardians of new students will create an account (unless the new student has older siblings already in attendance. In that case, the parent or guardian will use their existing account and add the new student).
Open Enrollment refers to a change of schools between 2 different districts, such as attending a Middleton/Cross Plains school while residing within Madison school district; or attending a Madison school while residing in the Verona (or any other) school district.

A parent or legal guardian is able to grant Rights to Records to another adult by filling out the Rights to Records form. If you're a new foster parent for an MMSD student, please refer to the Foster Care Rights to Record form.
