Registration for Students in Grades K-12

Welcome to the William Penn School District! New students to the district should register through the online registration portal. Please follow the steps below. Please note that the registration link in step 3 pertains only to the 2023-2024 school year.

Registration for kindergarten students will take place from March 4 – March 31. Please use this registration link to register your rising kindergarten student.

Non-district transportation requests must be completed through the registration portal (please go to step #3).



You can call to schedule an appointment here with a registration staff professional if:

  • You identify as homeless.
  • You experience problems with uploading documents and need to deliver copies in person.
    (Please make copies in advance and leave them in a marked envelope with the student’s name and date of birth.)

Appointment length is determined by the number of students being registered in the family; 30 minutes for the first child and 15 additional minutes per child would allow sufficient time.


If you have questions about the registration process, call the Registration Office at 610-284-8005, ext. 1234 or send an email.

9th Grade Residency Verification

Congratulations to you and your child for successfully completing the 8th grade school year! We are in the process of transitioning students from 8th grade to 9th grade and an important step in the process is to verify every William Penn School District 9th grade student’s residency. The 9th Grade Residency Verification process has been automated and replaces the paper forms previously used. All parents/guardians of rising 9th grade students should receive a letter that has step-by-step instructions and a unique snapcode needed to complete the Residency Verification process.

The deadline to complete the Residency Verification process is August 15, 2023.
