School’s out for summer…time to get a jump on registration for next year! Beginning in the 2018-19 school year the Davenport Community Schools is asking all K-12 families to use our Online Registration system. Online Registration is currently open for new and returning families and is required for students to return to school in August. This system allows for easy upload of required documents, simple verification of current information for returning students, and offers quick links upon submission for paying fees, school meals, and other helpful topics.
New families will find the link to this easy online registration service on the homepage of the district’s website. Returning families must use their Parent Portal account to access the link for their child’s registration.
