Champion Learning: Develop, Educate, and INSPIRE!


General Registration Information

Dexter Community Schools enrolls new students online using our Registration Gateway. This secure software allows new families to efficiently register their students online, and allows existing families to update their student information efficiently. All registrations and updates are reviewed by school secretaries before changes are published. 
We will begin accepting online registration for fall 2021 on March 1, 2021. 


January 2021: Due to COVID-19 concerns, and family difficulty obtaining some official documents, we are currently accepting enrollment documentation via email, fax, or regular mail, including copies of the birth certificate and parent/guardian photo ID. We will review original birth certificates in person (a State requirement) when schools re-open.
