School Choice and Charter School Applications will be completed by PAPER applications for New Students at the local schools.
Students NEW to the District in the following School Choice programs: SB10 and HB251 is the exception and will complete an Online Registration application via OLR website or at Support Center.
The Districtwide School Choice and Charter school applications will NOT be processed with the OLR application for the 18-19 school year – District Decision.
Parents/guardians of new students will be among the first DeKalb County School District (DCSD) families to use a new online registration application. The Online registration application (OLR) will allow parents/guardians the opportunity to navigate through a series of prompts to enter the vital information needed to ensure accurate school assignments and support services for their student.
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 completion.
This safe and secure system will make registration available from most internet-enabled devices, reducing the probability of a trip to a school or registration center. For parents unable to access the internet, DCSD will have two (2) Regional registration sites at McNair High School and East DeKalb Center (EDC).
“Modern times require modern solutions. The online registration system increases our ability to provide first-class service that leads to a very important end – ensuring students are in school and ready to learn on day one,” said Superintendent/CEO R. Stephen Green.
