    All Washington Township students must register with Northern School District this Spring, no matter what their designation for the fall. Northern needs a record of all students from Washington Township for whom we are accountable to the state. This registration requirement includes those that may be staying as tuition students in Dover schools, those transitioning to Northern, non-public school students, cyber charter students, and home school students. Registration is an online process. The registration window for Washington Township students who will be entering grades 1-12 is April 1 - 30. At that time, you will be asked to designate your intention for the fall. Please Note: Kindergarten Registration is open now. 

    To register with Northern you will need to create a Sapphire Registration Account. This account will allow you to access our Registration Forms. The 2021-22 Kindergarten Form is available now (Please see the Kindergarten page under the Parents tab). The Washington Twp Registration Form for students entering Grades 1-12 will be available April 1.
