SIMPLIFY THE REGISTRATION PROCESS AND SAVE TIME BY FILLING OUT YOUR PAPERWORK PRIOR TO THE REGISTRATION DATES – Please complete, PRINT, and bring the completed forms with you when you register. Please note, even if you complete these in advance, there will be additional paperwork you need to complete at registration.

Fillable PDFs are available in English and Spanish. (Download, fill out on your computer and print)

Regular PDFs are available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese and Khmer. (Print and fill out by hand)

The required forms for registration are:

OUSD Student Registration Packet (Policy Signature Page) — The last two pages of this four-page document must be filled out and signed by both the student and a parent or guardian.

Student Emergency Card — Use this form to provide emergency contact and disaster preparedness information for your family.

All families must fill out an additional form (not downloadable) when registering: the OUSD Free & Reduced Lunch form. We need ALL households to fill out and submit this form even if you don’t qualify for free/reduced lunch because it helps determine whether Chabot receives additional funding. Please be sure to fill out this form for your household and submit it with your paperwork. In past years, based on the information gathered from these forms, Chabot has qualified for additional funding that goes toward improving all students’ education at our school.
