Registering with CPS is as easy as 1, 2, 3…


Step 1: Gather Documents

To register your student, you will need the following documentation

  • Student’s birth certificate

  • Proof of residency – this can be an electric, gas, or water bill showing usage within the last 30 days. If you do not have any of these items, contact the Office of Student Enrollment for assistance at 757-547-0545.

  • School Health Information Form – the school physical form is available from the Chesapeake Health Department, or online at the Virginia Department of Education’s website. This form should be completed by your child’s physician and should include proof of adequate age-appropriate immunization.

  • Custody or court orders – if applicable

  • Foster care information form – if applicable

  • Individual Education Plan (IEP) or 504 – if applicable

Step 2: Register Your Student Online

Parents and guardians can register their student(s) online through their ParentVUE account. Please review the following notices before you begin the online registration process.

  • If you are new to the district and do not have an active ParentVUE account, please select “Create A New Account” on the ‘enroll a student’ button link below.

  • You can still register your new student(s) for the current school year.

  • Students who are currently enrolled in any Chesapeake Public Schools Pre-K program to include the Chesapeake Preschool Initiative (CPI) or Early Childhood SPED program for the 2023-2024 school year, will not have to register for kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year.  Our current preschool families will receive information about their kindergarten enrollment process in April.

Step 3: Contact by Zoned School

Once your registration information has been reviewed and accepted, your child’s school will contact you by phone or email for the next steps.
