Whooping Cough Shots Required It's Back to School time in San Diego Unified, with classes beginning Tuesday, Sept. 6. Here's some information parents should know.
  • Enrollment: Students who are new to the district have to be enrolled at their neighborhood school; if you child is returning, no enrollment is necessary. To find your neighborhood school, use the handy SchoolFinder. All neighborhood schools will be accepting enrollments beginning Thursday, August 25. Complete enrollment requirements.

  • Uniforms: A few of our schools recommend that students wear uniforms. To find a school's uniform policy, check the school's website, or, beginning Aug. 25, call or visit the school.

  • Back to School Supply Lists: In California, public schools cannot charge fees or require parents to purchase supplies -- with a few exceptions. Many schools have recommended supply lists, but all necessary materials will be supplied by your school. Read more.

  • Free and Reduced Price Meals: This state and federal program offers lunch and breakfast at reduced cost, depending on family income. Read more.
