Spring Enrollment

New Franklin R-1 Schools is participating in online Spring Enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year via Docusign.

The enrollment forms were sent out on May 3 and need to be completed by May 14. 2021.  

If your child/children are new to the district, you must complete the additional two forms—residency and discipline.  

Once the enrollment form has been completed and signed with Docusign, we will print and have students sign when they return in the fall.  The technology device plan (insurance) will be available again this year with the sign up in the forms you will receive. Payment is due by September 1.

With enrollment being done in the spring, we will be able to have all student accounts/devices ready for use the first day of school.

Free and reduced lunch forms will also be completed online through MySchoolApps.  The guidelines are updated yearly (in July) by the United States Department of Agriculture. An Alert Now message will be sent out when the district will be accepting online applications.  

Feel free to stop by the Tech Office any day and use a computer--no appointment necessary.
