Duneland-School-CorporationRegistration Information for Returning Students
Beginning on Monday, July 16, parents of all returning Duneland School students may register their children online using the Parent Access Portal. Online payments will be available for grade K-6 only on Monday, July 16. Due to potential student schedule changes, online payments for grades 7-12 will be available beginning on Saturday, Sept. 15.

Parents are being encouraged to pay their fees online. Those that must pay by check or cash will have to make arrangements to pay their fees at their child’s school.

Returning students that are transitioning to a new building will no longer need to provide proof of residency.

Those returning students whose residence within the district has changed and NEW students will need to attend single-site registration, unless proof of residency was provided to the school at the time of the move. If your current address does not match the address in your Skyward Parent Portal, you must provide proof of residency at single-site registration.

Book rental fees will be payable through Revtrak in your Skyward Parent Portal.
