Registering Your Student in the Kentfield School District
STEP 1: Log In to the Aeries Online Enrollment Portal
Visit the Aeries Online Enrollment Portal, and click Enroll A New Student if starting a new registration from scratch. If continuing a registration you already started, click Login in the lower-left.
- You will always begin registration for each student this way, even if:
- Your family already has other children attending school in the district.
- You are enrolling multiple children.
- You already have an Aeries Parent Portal account (which is NOT the enrollment portal).
During the online enrollment process you will be asked to either
(a) login as an existing user, or to
(b) create a new account.
- If you do not already have an enrollment portal account, create a new account.
- You must have a valid email address. If you do not have one, Google and other vendors provide free accounts.
- This account is ONLY for the Aeries Enrollment Portal (before your student is registered), and is completely different from the Aeries Parent Portal account you will receive after registration (once your student is enrolled in Kentfield) .
- If you create a new account, check your email for a verification code to continue.
- If you begin the process and need to finish later, you will login as an existing user at that time.
If you have any problems accessing the Online Enrollment System on a mobile device, you may need to use a desktop/laptop computer.
STEP 2 - Ensure that you have all required documentation in digital form.
- (1) Student's birth certificate, passport, or other proof of birthdate.
- (2) Student's current immunization record, provided by a physician.
- (3) District Affidavit of Proof of Residency PLUS 4 supporting documents:
(a) Category 1 (1 of 2 required, see below for details)
(b) Category 1 (2 of 2 required)
(c) Category 2
(d) Category 3
- (4) Kindergarten Documents (if applicable)
- The California School Immunization Law requires that all children receive a series of immunizations before entering school. The law requires schools to enforce immunization requirements and to maintain immunization records of all children enrolled. Please note that students entering 7th or 8th grade must have documentation of a Tdap (whooping cough) immunization.

- If you have further questions about immunizations, please contact School Nurse Laurel Yrun, R.N., at 415-925-2220 for Bacich, 415-458-5970 for Kent, or by email at email@example.com.
Documentation of Your Residency Within the District Boundaries:
Kentfield School District policy (BP 5111.1(b)) requires all students to demonstrate proof of residence within the Kentfield School District. California Government Code (sections 243 and 244) defines residency as the location where a person lives/sleeps/domiciles. There can be only one primary residence. If you have any questions regarding these residency requirements, please contact the District Office at 415-458-5130.
A District Affidavit of Proof of Residency (Spanish) and supporting documents must be filed for any student who is (a) new to the District, (b) a former District student returning after a leave, or (c) matriculating from Bacich 4th grade to Kent 5th grade. Supporting documents include:
- Category 1 (provide TWO of the following): PG&E Statement | Current Lease Agreement |. Most recent income tax return (please black out or cover sensitive personal information)
- Category 2 (provide ONE of the following): Cable Bill | Water Bill | Garbage Bill
- Category 3: Valid Government Issued Identification (CA Driver's License | CA Identification Card | Passport)
If you have an incoming TK or Kindergarten student, here is a Google Drive folder that contains documents for you to
- complete and submit: Transition to TK/Kindergarten - Parent Info | Spanish
- complete and submit: Health History | Spanish (ALL grades)
- read: Oral Health Brochure | Spanish (TK/K and Grade 1)
