Student Registration

Central Registration
Welcome to the Vestal Central School District. We are pleased to have you and your family join our District as new "Golden Bears!" The Vestal Central School District uses a Central Registration model through the platform Operoo for students entering Kindergarten and new students moving into the District. 

Operoo is a secure registration platform that provides an easy way to register your child for school. Registering through Operoo allows you to create a profile, which you will then be able to use throughout the District, when we deploy this platform for additional purposes. 

To begin the registration process, please click the button below that most aligns with your child.
Here is a list of what you will need to successfully complete the registration process
  • Two Proofs of Residency (dated within 60 days)
  • Proof of Immunizations
  • Proof of your child's Birth Date
  • Custody Papers (if applicable)
Examples of Proof of Residency:
  • Official Driver's License, Learner's Permit, or Non-Driver ID
  • Utility or other bill* (such as NYSEG, cable service, or sanitation service)
  • Voter registration document, pay stub, tax returns, or bank statements
  • Copy of residential lease or proof of ownership of a house, such as the deed or mortgage statement
* Please note that we cannot accept a copy of an envelope mailed to you; We will need a full copy of the actual document it contained, such as that listed above.

Universal Pre-Kindergarten

Vestal Central School District offers a half-day free pre-kindergarten program, contingent upon grant funding from New York State, at two third-party sites. Transportation is not provided.
When enrollment exceeds the number of seats funded by New York State, a lottery is held for residents of children eligible in the Vestal Central School District. However, any children living in temporary housing in the District who will be four years old by December 1 of the year enrollment is anticipated will be given a seat in this program. 

For more information on Vestal’s Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program and the sites housing it for the upcoming school year, please contact Soni Murphy at 607-757-2291 or [email protected]
