Enrollment Process for PVPUSD Residents
Two steps are required to complete the enrollment process for PVPUSD residents. (1) online and (2) in-person appointment for required documents. 
Step 1:   Begin Online Process (NOTE: The Enrollment Process is NOT COMPLETE until step 2 is completed in person)
Step 2:   After completing Step 1, the following documents will be required at an in-person appointment:
  • Printed Confirmation of Online Enrollment
  • Student's Age Validation: Original Birth Certificate or Valid Passport
  • Student's Current Immunization Records: in any format including online (please click here for more information)
  • Parent/Guardian Driver's License
  • Student's Recent Report Card
  • IEP or 504 Plan, if applicable
  • Residency Verification (more information below): (please click here for a list of required documents)
ALL RESIDENCY VERIFICATION DOCUMENTS MUST BE ORIGINALS (Received via US Mail). Electronically generated documents (.PDFs,.JPGs,.PNGs,etc. printed off a browser or from an email address) will NOT be accepted as an official document. If the household e-pays, is renting or is residing with a land lord who pays the utilities, please review other acceptable proofs of residency here.
All residency verification documents must list your name and current address and be originals that were mailed to you. We cannot accept online documents printed from the internet/email.
Does your household pay bills online only or receive e-Statements?
If you receive eBills, you may choose from the options below (Option 1 is preferred, as it offers a faster and more efficient enrollment process.)
Option 1 (Preferred): Contact your service providers (see list below) requesting the following must be mailed to your home (not emailed). This process will take 5-7 business days. Please bring TWO of the following optional documents in sealed envelope:


    • Athens Trash Service: Request a hard copy of your bill to be mailed to you @ [email protected](include account number, name and address in the email) 
    • California Water Service: Request a hard copy of your bill or service verification @ 310-257-1400(Bring all pages of the bill) 
    • SoCal Gas: Request Letter of Service Verification @ 1-877-238-0092 
    • Southern California Edison: Request Letter of Residency @ 1-800-655-4555 


Option 2: Make an appointment at the Enrollment Center Office. Be sure to know your username and password for at least two of your utility service providers. Staff will verify the authenticity of the service provider. You will need to login to your service provider account from the PVPUSD kiosk (NOT your personal device/phone) and to print your bill from a secure browser at the Enrollment Center. Please note that this option can potentially lengthen your enrollment process if you are chasing down username and password reset emails. It is imperative that you know your account username and password prior to your appointment. This option is currently ONLY offered at the DISTRICT Enrollment Center office at this time. If you are enrolling a high school student through the high school office, ONLY option 1 is applicable.
