Registration and enrollment is a two-part process. Families must complete both steps—registration and enrollment—in order to attend school in the Auburn-Washburn district for the upcoming school year. The registration process varies slightly depending on your circumstances. Please visit the applicable links below for further clarification.

Washburn Rural High School

All students, including those attending WRHS, will need to register online. There are additional steps that students attending WRHS may need to take prior to the start of school. This includes having their pictures taken, purchasing a parking permit, or ordering a yearbook if desired. High school students may also need to meet with their counselor to make changes to their Fall Semester schedule (Counselors will be available to make Spring Semester schedule changes and discuss other issues at a later date).

Washburn Rural High School will communicate directly via email with parents who have registered with details about steps that need to be taken prior to the start of school.


Auburn-Washburn offers a limited number of preschool slots for children who meet specific criteria. More information about this program is available on the Early Childhood page. Preschool families, including those who are returning, can complete Online Registration but must call the Early Childhood Center at (785) 408-8378 or email to finalize registration.


Once fees are posted, they may be paid online through Campus Portal or at your student's school.
