Student Enrollment vs. Annual Registration - What is the Difference?

Student Enrollment is the one-time process of arranging to attend Valparaiso Community Schools. Once a student is enrolled with Valparaiso Community Schools, they are eligible to proceed with registration. 
Annual Registration is the yearly process of reviewing and updating student information typically done electronically prior to the start of school.
