Welcome to the Vestal Central School District. We are pleased to have you and your family join our District as new "Golden Bears!" The Vestal Central School District uses a Central Registration model through the platform Operoo for students entering Kindergarten and new students moving into the District.
Operoo is a secure registration platform that provides an easy way to register your child for school. Registering through Operoo allows you to create a profile, which you will then be able to use throughout the District, when we deploy this platform for additional purposes.

- Two Proofs of Residency dated within the last two months (See examples below)

Universal Pre-Kindergarten Registration
Vestal Central School District offers a half-day free pre-kindergarten program, contingent upon grant funding from New York State, at two third-party sites. Transportation is not provided.
When enrollment exceeds the number of seats funded by New York State, a lottery is held for residents of children eligible in the Vestal Central School District. However, any children living in temporary housing in the District who will be four years old by December 1 of the year enrollment is anticipated will be given a seat in this program.
For more information on Vestal’s Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program and the sites housing it for the upcoming school year, please contact Soni Murphy at 607-757-2291 or [email protected].
Please use our Operoo Registration above to register your child for Kindergarten. Students eligible to enter Kindergarten are those who reside within the Vestal Central School District and will turn five years old on or before the first of December following the September in which the new school year began.
For your convenience in asking questions about your student's new school not related to the registration process, elementary schools and their main office telephone numbers are listed below. To determine which elementary school your child would attend, please access our Street Finder tool on the right.
