News Blog Category - News Online registration for all MCS schools for the 2014-15 school year is ongoing.


In addition, summer registration days are coming up later this month.

Families with students who were enrolled at an MCS school last year can register their students online.

The online registration process can be completed at any Internet-connected computer (including the public stations available at Marion Public Library). However, computer/Internet access and staff assistance will be available during our summer registration days, set for 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 22 and 23 at McCulloch Junior High School, 3528 S. Washington St. (Because construction projects scheduled this summer throughout the district will restrict visitor traffic, there will be one registration location for all student registration. Staff from all school buildings will be available at registration at McCulloch.)

Those with students who are new to MCS should plan to attend our in-school registration days to provide needed documentation and information, including proof of residence (such as a recent utility bill with your name and address), and the name and contact information for the school your student most recently attended, along with any health/allergy information.

Textbook fees and deposits can also be paid online as part of the registration process, or at the summer registration days (where you can avoid the online payment processing fee).
