Enrollment Information

Enrolling your Student in Grades 4K-8

Enrollment is a “one-time only” process and should not be confused with the annual registration that occurs every summer for students who completed the previous year at a Richmond school.

Non-Resident Families – Do not complete this enrollment application until you have received confirmation of your student’s open enrollment acceptance from Richmond School.

Step 1: Verification of Residency and Date of Birth
Residency must be proven before your child can be enrolled in the District. Residency is the address at which the family physically resides, keeps their personal affects, receives mail, and maintains voter registration. This residency must be a street address. Post Office boxes are not accepted. The following home ownership documents must be provided. Falsification of any information or documents relative to this verification procedure may result in the withdrawal of this student.

Verify your home is within the Richmond School District boundaries by looking up the address on the Waukesha County Tax Listing. 

Please email the following required documents to swillia@richmond.k12.wi.usYou may also deliver the documents to the school – but please notify Sue prior. Open Enrollment families are NOT required to provide proof of residency.

  • Proof of residency must show your name and the address provided for enrollment.  Acceptable documents are: Current gas, electric bill, cable bill (dated within last 30 days)
  • Child’s birth certificate or passport page showing child’s full name and date of birth
  • Current Immunization Records

If you are unable to provide one of the above, please complete the Student Residency Questionnaire and submit to swillia@richmond.k12.wi.us

NOTE: Resident students are not considered registered and eligible to enroll until the residency verification process is complete.
