Registration for the new school year begins in earnest this week for all nine schools in the Bullhead City Elementary (BCESD) and Colorado River Union High School (CRUHSD) Districts. Students return August 2.

District officials emphasized the importance of registering before the school year starts rather than waiting until school has begun. Registration packets are available online at and should be filled out in advance.

Proof of residency criteria, along with transcript and vaccination information, are also online, or may be obtained from each school. CRUHSD students should also complete the form for free and reduced lunch eligibility.

Students, including special education and incoming kindergarten students, should register at their individual schools. Pre-kindergarten students not already registered should do so at the BCESD special services department, 1004 Hancock Road, Building #300.

Elementary and junior high school registration is available at each school during office hours, which may vary by campus.

The three CRUHSD high schools have different registration schedules by grade level. Mohave High registration begins Monday, River Valley registration starts Tuesday and CRUHSD Academy registration will be underway Wednesday.

At Mohave High in Bullhead City, returning students have the following schedule this week from 8:30 am to 11:30 am and 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm: freshmen on July 17 (Monday), sophomores on July 18 (Tuesday), juniors on July 19 (Wednesday) and seniors on July 20 (Thursday). All registrations will be held in the Old Gym.
