New Student Registration

 

Welcome to Vista Education Campus (VEC)! 

We look forward to having you join us for a great, new year.  There are many, helpful transition skills and content we teach, as well as terrific opportunities for work and fun.  We look forward to you contributing to and participating in so many instructional activities at VEC.  Let's get to registering!

The following is important, as you begin.

VEC Registration is from Monday, July 15 – Monday, August 5, 2019.

  • We do require registration to be completed first, which will help us to prepare for the first day.
  • There are very important forms, some of which require time to complete.  Please begin right away. 
  • Late registration can be submitted after Monday, August 5, 2019, but will require a late fee and could potentially lead to delays for you.

We do recommend that you review the content under all three tabs below. 

  • Required Registration Tab - The items listed below under this tab are needed for each new VEC student.
  • Optional Registration Tab - The items listed under this tab are offered to you and are completely your choice, such as our VEC Yearbook, Portrait Info, VEC Logo Clothing, and Free/Reduced Meals information.
  • School Fees Options Tab - This gives options for paying school fees and applying for a School Fees Waiver, if needed.

Important Notes to Help Start the Year Well

  • The first day of school-wide instruction for students will be Monday, August 26th to permit teachers to hold individual intake appointments with students and parents. 
    • Intakes will be scheduled August 13th-23rd
    • Buses will begin picking up students on Monday, August 26th
  • Registration must be fully completed prior to any student attending VEC. This enables our school team to organize and ensure proper supervision and support for each attending student. 
    • Completing registration includes immunizations* (or appropriate exemptions) and fees or fee waivers with required documentation.
      • *Immunizations that are started may require time between shots.  If the students has received the first in the series, then the student is permitted to attend.
  • Emphasized deadlines help everyone avoid delays for students
    • Please work to have all registration materials completed and sent to us by August 5th, giving us plenty of time to input all SpEd Bus Requests by August 9th.
    • Any student whose registration is received after August 9th will not have yellow bus transportation until at least September 3rd.  Transportation is unable to route students between August 12th and the start of school year due to bidding, training, and drivers starting.
    • Bus routing can take 3-5 school days to put in place and would require you/your student to arrange for personal transportation during that time.

We appreciate your help to prepare for the first day of school in a timely manner.  Thank you.
