We welcome you and your incoming 9th grade student, to El Capitan High School for the next school year. Our goal is to make your student’s transition to El Capitan High School a smooth and welcoming experience. The following outlines the process to register your student at El Capitan High School as well as how to request a school transfer to El Capitan High School if you do not reside inside our traditional boundaries.
Please note: the deadline for requesting transfers to El Capitan High School is
February 24, 2017.
In order to register your student at El Capitan High School next year, you will need to complete a simple online form with basic information — such as your name, your student’s name, your email address, contact information, etc. — located on the Grossmont District’s website. If you do not have an email address, instructions for creating an account are available at the District website. Visit the www.guhsd.net to start the process.
After submitting the online registration form, your student’s high school will review the information you've provided. Once this process is complete, you will receive instructions via email on creating an account at the District’s Campus Portal website. The email will include the website to use as well as online support resources. The Campus Portal is a powerful tool for parents and, once your student is at El Capitan High School, you
will be able to use this resource to check on attendance, grades, etc.

If your student is already in the El Capitan attendance area, you may disregard this step.
However, if you are outside the El Capitan attendance area, you may request a school transfer after you have completed the online registration process and have successfully created a Campus Portal account outlined in Steps 1 and 2.
Using the Campus Portal, you may request a school transfer through February, 24, 2017. Additional instructions for completing the transfer request form will be provided at the Campus Portal website. All transfer requests must be submitted online. Applications will not be accepted by mail, over the phone, or in person. If the number of applicants to a particular school exceeds the number of available spaces, students are selected via random lottery. Requests are not granted on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please note: students granted a school transfer are not provided with District transportation.
Although the registration and Campus Portal websites are available from anywhere on the web, if you require assistance or computer access, please don't hesitate to use one of the resource centers above.
These locations will have computers you can use to complete the registration process as well as connect to the Campus Portal. Note the hours of operation for each resource center.
