How to Enroll your K-12 student

  • Current South St. Paul Public School Students in grades K-11

    If your children are currently enrolled in our schools in grades K-11, they will be automatically enrolled in the next school year at the next grade level (1-12). We will ask you later this year to use your Campus Portal account to update your family information.

    Current South St. Paul Preschoolers going into Kindergarten should use the directions below for Other Students.
