School Registration & Boundaries

Online Registration for Returning Students

Online registration will begin the week of March 11, 2019 for all returning students including returning ELDC prekindergarten and early childhood students via Family Access. Families with elementary students are encouraged to complete online registration by May 15. Returning elementary students who are not registered by May 15 are not guaranteed their spot at the school they currently attend if online registration has not been completed by May 15. DeKalb High School students and middle school students will not receive their schedules until registration is completed. Options for families without computer access to complete online registration will be made available on a computer at your student's school or at the Education Center. Assistance is also available for families needing English translation. Please contact your child's school if you need assistance with password or login information, computer access and/or translation assistance. Step-by step instructions are available here. Spanish instructions are here.
