Student Registration

All students between 5 and 21 years of age have the right to a free public education. Children may not be refused admission because of race, color, creed, or national origin, sex, citizenship, handicapping condition, or immigration status. 

Families who reside within the boundaries of the Candor Central School District are required to register all school-age children, even if their children attend a private school or charter school or if they homeschool their children. If your housing is not stable or if you are unsure of your residency status in the Candor Central School District, please contact the District Office at (607) 659-5010.

Registration Process

To begin registering your child(ren) in the Candor Central School District, please contact the appropriate building based on the grade of the student you are registering. If you are registering multiple students, use the contact information appropriate for your oldest student.

Jackie or Leslie will help walk you through the registration process. We offer a secure online portal and will email the appropriate documents to be filled out, signed and returned to help expedite the process. If you would rather register in-person or do not have access to a computer or mobile device, you may make an appointment with them.

If you do not live in the District

Please complete the Out of District Application and submit it to the District Office before completing registration forms

Students who are returning to the District do not need to complete the online pre-registration.

The following information is an overview of the registration process but please contact the appropriate building representative to begin the process

NOTE: We ask that you physically reside within the Candor Central School District BEFORE you begin the online registration process. Once you begin the registration process, you have 30 calendar days to complete it for each child. If you fail to complete the registration(s) within 30 calendar days of beginning, the forms will be deleted and you will have to start from the beginning.

After completing the district registration process, we will contact you to verify your information. An appointment will be made by the school for screening, scheduling, and classroom placement.

Step 1: Complete Pre-Registration Application

Student demographic information and contacts: Go to and click on "New User" to begin the process. We have created a step-by-step guide that will help walk you through each screen of the pre-registration process.

Step 2: Complete Registration Forms

You will receive a separate email for each child you are registering containing documents that will need to be filled out and digitally signed. These documents can be completed online. After filling out each form and electronically signing them, you will see "Click to Sign" appear at the bottom of your screen. Once clicked, your documents will automatically be returned to us.

Step 3: Required documentation

After receiving your registration documents a District representative will contact you to set up a time to bring in the following documentation and complete your registration.

All students MUST have the following information in order to register at Candor Central School District:

  • Immunization and Health Records:

    • Copy of most recent physical (NYS physicals must be dated within the last year at time of registration. If moving from out of state, a new physical is required).

    • Copy of most the current immunization records to be in compliance with grade level entry.

Upon enrollment, Candor schools require up-to-date immunization records. Pursuant to A.R.S 15-843, a student shall not attend school unless documented proof of immunization has been provided.

  • Proof of Age (One of the following):

    • Original Birth Certificate

    • Passport and/or Visa

    • Baptismal Certificate with date of birth indicated

The 1987 Legislature passed a law designated to help trace the location of any child who is reported missing. So that schools may assist in this effort, A.R.S. Sec. 15-828 requires that you, the parent or guardian of the child you are enrolling in our District provide a certified copy of the pupil’s birth certificate.

  • Two (2) Proofs of Residency:

    • Lease or Deed Agreement

    • Utility Bill (NYSEG, Phone, Water, etc)

    • Paycheck Stub

    • Driver's License

    • Voter Registration Card

    • School Tax Bill

    • Income Tax Form

    • State or Other Government issued ID

The residence of a student is the residence of the person having legal custody of the student, except as provided in A.R.S 15-824(B) and A.R.S 15-825. Residency of the parent/guardian or surrogate may be determined by showing the individual's presence and intent to remain in the District.


  • Custody Arrangement

  • Court of Protection

  • Form DSS-2099 for foster care placement

Proof of Legal Guardianship / Custody: If a guardian other than a natural parent will be registering the student, a court document showing current guardianship must be provided at time of registration. If divorced, you MUST provide legal documentation of the custody agreement.

Signing the Student Registration Forms indicates you understand that NYS requires proof of immunizations to enroll your child and you affirm the information supplied, as a whole. Your signature also indicates that you are the legal parent or guardian residing within Candor Central School District boundaries.

Falsification of information will be grounds for immediate withdrawal of the student(s) from school. All verifications are subject to final approval by the District. The District reserves the right to investigate the claimed residency status and to require additional documentation to prove residency within the District.
