Families who are new to the DeKalb County School District (DCSD) can now access the district’s online registration system.

The online registration, launched July 9, is for new students only.

Parents of returning students should contact their student’s school for information. They will have the school supply lists.

The first day of school for DeKalb students is Aug. 6.

Parents or guardians can visit navigate through a series of prompts to enter the vital information needed to ensure accurate school assignments and support services for their student. The new student online registration process takes approximately 20-30 minutes.

Through online registration, parents can register multiple students all at one time. This process will eliminate the multiple paper documents historically required for registration. The OLR tool will provide the convenience of entering information and attaching documents with the ability to save the work for a later com
