Enrollment is not finalized until the parent/guardian comes to the Central Registration Office with proof of residency, current photo I.D. and a copy of the certified birth certificate. If a copy of the birth certificate is not available, you must provide it to your child’s school within 30 days of enrollment.

Returning Students

Online registration for the 2020-21 school year will begin the week of March 30, 2020 for all returning students including returning ELDC PreKindergarten and Early Childhood students via Skyward Family Access. Families with elementary students are encouraged to complete online registration by May 11. Returning elementary students who are not registered by May 11 are not guaranteed their spot at the school they currently attend.

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

Computers are available at the Education Center, at your child’s school and the DeKalb Public Library for registration, if needed. Please contact your child’s school if you need assistance with password or login information. Assistance is also available for families needing English translation.
