Enrollment

Welcome to Turner USD 202! Everyday we strive to achieve success by expecting the best from everyone, both in the classroom and outside school walls. We thank you for choosing the Turner Unified School District and look forward to getting to know your student both personally and academically. 

If you are looking for more information about our preschool and kindergarten programs, visit their webpages through the links below.

Enrollment can be done completely online, but if you need assistance in-person, the district office will offer late enrollment nights on August 1st and 6th. To make an appointment, please call 913-288-4123. If you do an in-person enrollment, please ensure you have all the required documents with you.  

NEW STUDENT ENROLLMENT

Online enrollments are preferred, however in person enrollment may be done by appointment. 

New students enrolling in USD 202 will need to provide the following:

  • Proof of Residency: A utility bill or lease is needed to establish residency in Turner USD 202.
  • Student's State Issued Birth Certificate: Required at the time of enrollment for students entering school in Kansas for the first time. An in-state transfer student without a birth certificate must submit within 30 days of enrollment or will be referred to the District Attorney's Office pursuant to Kansas State Law 72-53,106. 
  • State Issued Identification of Parent/Guardian
  • Immunization Record
  • Completed Physical Form: Required within 90 days of enrollment for students entering school in Kansas for the first time. 

NEW STUDENT ENROLLMENT APPOINTMENTS

Parents/guardians who prefer to enroll a new student in-person rather than online may schedule an appointment by calling the Office of Student Services at (913) 288-4123. Parents/guardians should come to the appointment with the required documentation listed above.

EXistinging student online registration (OLR)

Each May, returning students will need to complete online registration (OLR) through Parent Portal to be officially enrolled for the upcoming school year. This process consists of the parent/guardian verifying the information on file for each student and signing off on the parent acknowledgements in July. Students will not receive their district technology or class schedule until OLR and parent acknowledgements are completed. 

NON-RESIDENT STUDENT ENROLLMENT (See POLICY JBCC)

From June 1 through June 30, TUSD shall accept applications from nonresident students. If the number of applications for a grade level is less than the number of available seats for that grade level, the nonresident students shall be accepted for enrollment and attendance at the school district provided the students meet the good standing criteria.  If the number of applications for a grade level is greater than the number of available seats for the grade level, TUSD shall randomly select nonresident students using a confidential lottery process. 

The District shall give priority in enrollment to the following nonresident students, who shall receive open seats without necessity of being selected through the open-seat lottery:

  • any nonresident student currently attending Turner USD 202 that remain in good standing;
  • any sibling of a nonresident student who was accepted to enroll in and attend school in the district;
  • any nonresident student who is a military student as defined in K.S.A. 72-5139;
  • any child who is in the custody of the Department for Children and Families and who is living in the home of a nonresident student who transfers to the district;
  • any nonresident student who has a parent or person acting as parent employed by the district shall be permitted to enroll in and attend school in the district as if the student is a resident of the district while the parent or person acting as a parent remains employed by the district;
  • any child who is experiencing homelessness shall be permitted to enroll in and attend the school district of origin or the school district of residence.
  • students that relocate outside the district in the fourth consecutive semester of enrollment as a resident and the student is in good standing.
  • any resident of the district wishing to enroll in a school building other than the designated attendance building for their address. 

To apply for an available seat, nonresident students and their parents must complete the application at the link below and submit the application and supporting student records to the Office of Student Services, 800 South 55th Street, Kansas City, KS 66106.
