Skyward Qmaltiv is live and ready for you to try the new platform. Skyward is the Student Information system where you can register your student for the upcoming school year, see your student's assignments, grades, attendance, and much more. We have created a video to give you step-by-step instructions on how to access the platform through a browser or mobile device. If you have not updated your mobile device, do so before clicking the link for access to registration.  Thank you for your patience and understanding. Here is the LINK to the Video! 

*For changes to guardian phone numbers or email address call or email your student's school office personnel or email  

*If you have not moved or will not be moving prior to the start of the school year, please continue with returning student registration.

*If you have moved or will be moving prior to the start of the school year, you MUST provide updated proof of residency documents to the District Registrar PRIOR TO completing this Returning Student Registration.   Acceptable Proof of Residency documents

Online registration for the 2024-2025 school year opened April 1, 2024, for all returning students.  Returning student registration must be completed prior to May 12, 2024 to reserve your child's spot in their current Elementary or Middle School.  For ALL new and returning completed registrations received after May 12, 2024, students will be placed on a first come, first serve basis.  Some students may be overflowed to other schools within the district depending on availability.

*DeKalb High School students and middle school students will not receive their schedules until online registration is completed.

Returning students include all students that were ACTIVE at the end of last school year:

*If your student was withdrawn prior to 5/22/2024 from DeKalb School District and therefore considered INACTIVE, you must complete NEW Student Online Registration to re enroll your student in the district.

Computers are available at the Education Center, at your child’s school, and the DeKalb Public Library for registration, if needed. You can also use your student's Chromebook and log in using your family access login ID and password in Skyward. Please contact your child’s school if you need assistance with your Skyward Family Access login and password information. Assistance is also available for families needing English translation.
