Military Families: Planning your arrival to DSD

Students new to DSD will complete the registration process. Douglas School District uses an online process for new student registration. You will be required to provide certain documents (specified on registration page) after you submit the online application. 

Kindergarten Registration

A child who is five years old on or before September 1 will be allowed to enroll in kindergarten in DSD.

Absences Related To Deployment/PCS

Please note that PCS related absences are not covered under the Interstate Military Compact. Students should be registered and enrolled in school immediately upon relocation.

Per the Interstate Compact, a student whose parent or legal guardian has been called to duty for, is on leave from, or immediately returned from deployment shall be granted additional excused absences at the discretion of the principal. A variety of factors will be considered when making a decision about the requested amount of excused absences (i.e., during a state testing window).
