District's Central Registration Process Now in Place

The Kettering City School District now has a Central Registration office, where all parents and guardians will come to register their children for school. The Central Registration Office is located in the Kettering Board of Education Building, located at 3750 Far Hills Avenue.


Parents/guardians are asked to make an appointment to register their child(ren) for school. “This will help to streamline the registration process and cut down on the wait time for our busy parents,” says Dan VonHandorf, director of Student Services for the district, adding, “Having our registration take place at a central location, instead of at each building, will also be a big time-saver for parents who have more than one child that they are registering.”
