MCS online registration begins soon

Posted on Jun. 19 2017 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
News Blog Category - News Registration for the 2017-18 school year at Marion Community Schools will begin next month.

Online registration is set to open on Saturday, July 1. (A link will be available here at our website). 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 also be available during our onsite registration days, set for 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 11 and 12 at Marion High School, 750 W. 26th St. (This will be the location for registration for all MCS schools, K-12. Staff from all school buildings will be available on those days at Marion High School.) Please enter at Door 4 on the 26th Street side of the building. Parking is available in the parking lot on the east side of the building. Please do not park in the circle off 26th Street. 

Those with students who are new to MCS should plan to attend our onsite 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.

However, MRCC has separate times set for county students who will attend in the fall: between 8:30 and 11 a.m. or 12:30 and 3 p.m. on July 12 and 13 at Marion High School. Please enter at Door 4 on the 26th Street side of the building. Parking is available in the parking lot on the east side of the building. Please do not park in the circle off 26th Street.
