Kings Student Registration to Go Online
We are making changes districtwide with our back to school forms.

All schools in the district will be using a system called FinalForms which will allow you to complete registration forms online.

We are hopeful that this system will save you time and increase the accuracy of the information we collect from the forms you turn in each Fall. You should receive an email from FinalForms to activate your account. We will also be sending you detailed information on the new process. Thank your for your cooperation!
