News Blog Category - News Marion Community Schools’ onsite registration is next week. All new students (K-12) and their families wanting to enroll should plan to attend. In addition, any returning student/family who needs computer access or other assistance should attend during these times as well.

Onsite registration will be from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 17, and Wednesday, July 18, 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 northeast corner 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 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.

Those with returning students will need to review information including contact numbers, address, transportation options, assistance requests, etc., and update if needed.

Textbook fees and deposits can also be paid at the on-site registration days (where you can avoid the online payment processing fee).

A note for students registering for classes at Marion Regional Career Center: MHS students will register for MRCC classes during the regular registration process outlined above. Sending school students will complete their registration after the start of school, in conjunction with their school counselor and MRCC staff.

The online registration system will again be available for families with students who were enrolled at an MCS school last year, including Little Giants Preschool students who will be in kindergarten this year, as well as any families who attended Kindergarten Roundup in the spring. A link and instructions will be provided in the Enrollment section of our website once online registration is open. (Computer access and assistance with passwords or other issues will be available at Marion High School during onsite registration days.)
