The San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) is eager to enroll the Class of 2035.

Enrollment is underway in SBCUSD for students who will start kindergarten or transitional kindergarten in 2022. Children who will be 5 years old by September 1, 2022, are eligible to enroll in kindergarten for the 2022–2023 school year. Transitional kindergarten (TK) is available for students who will turn 5 years old from September 2, 2022, to February 2, 2023.

According to Elementary Instruction Director Amy Coker, kindergarten is an important academic milestone for children. It provides a chance for children to strengthen fundamental  skills necessary to support learning throughout their educational program. Some of these skills include :

  • Counting to 100
  • Writing numbers 0–20
  • Identifying shapes (ex. square, circle, rectangle)
  • Basic addition and subtraction
  • Writing upper and lower case letters
  • Recognizing ending punctuation (i.e. period, question mark, exclamation mark)
  • Recognizing letter names and sounds 

San Bernardino City Unified School District families may visit the online School Site Locator to determine their child’s home school.

Families may enroll online or visit any SBCUSD elementary school campus.

Regardless of how they choose to enroll their child, families will need to complete an enrollment packet and provide several documents to register children for school. Required documents include photo identification for the parents/guardians; proof of address in the form of a current utility bill or affidavit from the property owner; proof of the child’s birthday in the form of a birth certificate, physician or hospital record, baptismal or church certificate, or passport; and the child’s immunization records. Families will need to upload photos of the required documents.

Children who have some, but not all, of their required vaccinations may still be eligible to enroll so long as required immunizations are completed before the first day of school.

For more information, contact Enrollment and Placement Services at (909) 889-7576 or enroll your child online.
