Student Registration and Enrollment

Student Registration Information

The Lakewood City School District has a new online registration system. Instead of Infosnap, we are collecting new and returning student data for grades KG-12 (not preschool) via Registration Gateway. The new system is now accessible through the district’s website from anywhere there is a computer with an internet connection, including at home or the public library. A  kiosk is also available at the Board of Education building in the registration office. 


Student Registration takes place at the Lakewood Board of Education on every business day.
Regular Hours (starting 8/21/17):   Mon, Wed, Fri: 9am - 12pm;  ue, Thu: 1pm - 5pm

Registrations are taken by appointment.

After collecting all required documents and completing the pre-registration forms online through Registration Gateway for grades KG-12 (not preschool), you may schedule an appointment with the registration secretary to complete the registration for your child(ren).

During summer hours, it may be possible to meet with the registration secretary without an appointment, after you have completed the online pre-registration. Priority will be given to those with appointments first and then to walk-ins.

Who may register a child?

Only legal residents who are the parent or legal guardian of the child may complete the pre-registration process. All certified court orders pertaining to guardianship and custody must be presented at the time of registration. The Lakewood City School District does not grant temporary enrollment (ORC 3313.64 E).

If after your child is enrolled, you move to a new address at any time during your child’s enrollment in the District, it is your responsibility to inform your child’s school principal of your new address.

Likewise, parent(s)/guardian(s) are responsible for informing school officials of any change(s) to the legal custody or guardianship of their child(ren).

In the event of any of the changes listed below, parent(s)/guardian(s) shall notify their child(ren)'s school or house principal (LHS only).

NOTE: Notification shall be made to the Department of Student Services at the Board of Education when individual school buildings are closed.

Mandatory Reporting:
