Pre-enrollment for the 2012-13 school year begins today for rising kindergartners and students new to the Wake County Public School System. Parents of rising kindergartners may register at any nearby elementary school, and parents of students new to the system may register at the nearest grade-appropriate school for their child.

Families may also pre-enroll at the Wake County Public School System's Central Administration Building located at 5625 Dillard Drive in Cary in the Office of Student Assignment or the Center for International Enrollment if the parents speak a language other than English.

To enroll, parents should bring:

  • their child's birth certificate,
  • parent/guardian photo ID,
  • proof of address in the form of a water, electric or gas bill or a signed lease or rental agreement.
Children do not need to be present during the pre-enrollment process. Rising kindergartners and new students will need to pre-enroll to get their NC-WISE student ID number prior to participating in the School Choice Selection Process for the 2012-13 school year. Parents will use their child's NC-WISE student ID number to complete the online selection form.

The dates for the selection periods are as follows:

  • Magnet Selection Period: Dec. 5-19
  • Round 1 Choice Selection Period: Jan. 17-Feb. 24
  • Round 2 Choice Selection Period: March 19-April 9
For more information on pre-enrollment or the School Choice Selection Process, visit the assignment website at or call 919-431-7333.
