School District announces online and on-site registration information
DARLINGTON--Parents with returning students in the Darlington County School District (DCSD) can avoid long registration lines at the school by taking advantage of online registration.
PowerSchool Registration opened on Monday, July 16, and will allow parents with returning students to complete registration online, significantly reducing time spent at the school. PowerSchool Registration may be found by visiting the district’s website, www.darlington. k12.sc.us, and selecting the “2018-2019 Student Registration” link under “For Parents.”
Parents who register online will still need to go to the school during on-site registration to show proof of residency and pay any fees. Parents with students who will be new to DCSD must still register their child at the school during on-site registration. As a reminder, a tax notice, a landline telephone bill, a bill for cable service that is connected to the residence, or a utility bill such as water, gas and electric will be accepted as proof of residency. Neither a cellphone bill nor a driver’s license will be accepted as proof of residency.
In order to use the online registration, parents will need login credentials for each student. Parents can obtain login credentials by calling the registration hotline, which will be available from July 16-19 and July 23-26 from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. each day. The number is 843-398-2236.
Only returning students will be able to register online through PowerSchool Registration. Parents will still need to go to the school to show proof of residency and pay fees.
New students, including 4K and 5K students not previously registered, must be registered at the school during on-site registration. In order to register a new student, parents and/or guardians must bring the following materials to the school during on-site registration
• Proof of residency
A tax notice, a landline telephone bill, a bill for cable service that is connected to the residence or a utility bill such as water, gas and electric will be accepted.
A cellphone bill and/or a driver’s license cannot be used as proof of residency.
• Immunization record
• Birth certificate
• (For 4K only) Proof of income/S.C. Healthy Connection Medicaid Card
A registration slot for 4K will not be reserved for a child without documented proof of residence and proof of income. Available slots are limited and preference is given to those students whose family meets state income requirements.
On-site registration will be held on the days of July 30, July 31 and Aug. 1. Schools and grades vary depending on the day. Full information can be found in the chart .
