New student enrollment

Are you new to the Gahanna-Jefferson Public School district this school year?

Welcome! Enrolling is fast, easy, and eco-friendly with our online K-12 enrollment process for students new to GJPS.

With a personal e-mail, families can create a secure Gahanna-Jefferson online enrollment access key to enter their student information. The system will then prompt them to schedule an appointment with a representative of the GJPS Welcome Center at Clark Hall for a brief review of any of the items required for enrollment. Please keep in mind to attend Gahanna-Jefferson schools you must have a permanent resident within the school district, in accordance with ORC 3313.64.

Kindergarten registration

Registration for kindergarten students is now open. Gahanna-Jefferson Schools are preparing to welcome and register Gahanna children, who will be 5-years-old on or before Aug. 1, for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year!

Preschool registration

The Gahanna-Jefferson Public School district offers an outstanding preschool program that serves children with disabilities and also provides an educational opportunity for typical developing children to serve as social and academic peer models. Enrollment of peer models is open to children of district residents and staff members of GJPS through an application process. Peers must also be 4 years old by Dec. 1.

If you suspect your child has a disability, contact (614) 269-4780. 

'Child Find Campaign'

The GJPS Child Find campaign seeks to identify, locate and evaluate all children with disabilities – from age 3 through 21 – residing within the district’s attendance boundaries. The campaign also seeks out those who may be homeless, wards of the state, or attending nonpublic schools.

If you know of a child with a disability, or have a child suspected of having a disability, who is not currently receiving appropriate educational or related services,
please contact the GJPS Office of Special Education at 614-337-3777.

If you know of a child who lacks a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence, (fitting the Ohio Department of Education's definition of homelessness,) please contact the GJPS Office of Pupil Services at 614-479-1310.
