Registration - New Students

Last Updated: 1/28/2022 4:35 PM


Welcome to Lakewood City Schools!

In order to allow for the safety of our families and staff, we have moved our registration to an online process.

Who May Register a Child?

The Lakewood City School District will enroll only those students whose parents/legal guardians are residents of this school district. “Residence” for school purposes means that the custodial parent(s)/legal guardian(s) of the student are full-time residents of Lakewood. 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).

Kindergarten: Ohio Law requires that all children complete a formal kindergarten program. Any child who is 5 years old on or before September 30 of the school year is eligible for kindergarten.
