Your child's first day at Homer Central Schools is a very important one. We want you to have as much information as possible for a smooth, successful transition for our new students as they enter our district. This information will help support their understanding of what to expect so they will have a great start in their studies at Homer. We encourage you to view our website for general information, building information, staff web pages, District calendar, news highlights and much more! The first step to enroll your child at Homer is the registration process.
The Central Registration Office is located at the Homer Elementary School. You may enter the building at the main door by the pillars and proceed to the Main Office to sign in as a visitor. You will need to complete one packet for each child that you will be registering. If you would like to have the registration packets mailed to you, please call 607-749-7241, then either press 3 or enter #5041, and the packets will be mailed to you immediately. If you prefer to pick them up yourself, please call the same telephone number, and the packets will be waiting for you to pick them up in the Main Office at the Elementary School.

You can input your personal information in a secured, easy-to-use template.
Once you submit your information online, complete the forms in the Student registration packet and call the District's registration office to make an appointment to complete your registration.
For each child that you register, you will need to present the following when you come in to register your child(ren) for school:

If your child receives special education services or has a medical accommodation plan, please indicate this by checking the appropriate box on the first page of the registration form and provide a copy of the most current plan where possible.
