Welcome to Isle of Wight County Schools!
Any child who reaches the age of 5 by September 30 of the start of a new school year may enroll as a kindergarten student in IWCS. Students with birthdays after September 30 must wait until the following school year to attend public school in Virginia.
To ensure a smooth transition for students transferring from other school divisions, it is important that school records be forwarded in a timely manner. Please be sure to provide your child's current school with contact information for their new IWCS school. Once records are received, placement and class schedules can be set.
The Electronic Student Registration System allows you to register your child for school online using the red link below with any of the popular web browsers including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, FireFox and Safari. When you have completed all the data entry required, you will bring the required documentation to your child's school to complete the registration process.
IWCS is in the process of moving to a new online registration system. Online registration will be unavailable from Friday, 2/15/19 at 4:00pm to Tuesday 2/19/19 at 8:00am. Documentation for any online registrations started before Friday at 4:00 will need to be brought into the school by close of business on Friday 2/28/19. If the registration has not been completed by then, the online portion will need to be completed again in the new system.
If you would like a copy of the eRegistration guide, please contact Kimberly Hytinen at 757-357-4393 or by email at email@example.com
