First, welcome to Dickinson ISD. We are excited to have your student join Gator Nation for the 2022-2023 school year.

Beginning Monday, August 1, parents of students who are new to Dickinson ISD for the 2022-2023 school year must complete Online Enrollment. If the student will need to ride a bus the first week of school, enrollment must be complete by August 9.

Step 1: Visit

If you are enrolling a student new to Dickinson ISD, your first step is to visit for complete details on online enrollment for new students. You will also find important links to complete the online enrollment process through the district's student data system, Skyward.

Step 2: Accessing online enrollment in Skyward Family Access.

  • If the new student has siblings in Dickinson ISD, AND the parent enrolling the student has a Skyward Family Access log-in, then the parent will login to Skyward Family Access and click on New Student Online Enrollment. A link to the Skyward login page can be found at

  • If the new student has siblings in Dickinson ISD, but the parent does not have their Skyward Family Access log-in information, the parent must contact the school of one of the siblings to receive log-in information.

  • If the parent enrolling the student does not have a Skyward Family Access login, AND there are no siblings in Dickinson ISD, then the parent must first request an account. You will find a link at to click on to request an account. After requesting an account, the parent will receive an email with their login information.

    Step 3: Contact child's school for a time to submit paperwork.

    After completing the New Student Online Enrollment application, the parent must make an appointment with the campus to complete the enrollment process and provide COPIES of the required documents. The exception is Dickinson High School, which will have specific days (see following page) for paperwork dropoff, transcript evaluation and course selection.

  • Student’s Birth Certificate

  • Student’s Immunization Record

  • Proof of Residency - current utility bill (electric, gas, or water) or lease/mortgage/tax statement in parent’s name

  • Valid parent ID (Driver License, passport, or military ID)

  • Student’s Medication information, if applicable

  • Student’s Social Security Card (OPTIONAL, but needed if SSN was provided on application)

  • Court paperwork for Guardianship(s), if applicable

  • Complete copy of Divorce/Custody documents (all pages), if applicable

  • Special Education/Section 504 information, if applicable

  • Copy of last report card if the student is transferring from another District, as well as the name, address and phone number of the last school attended

  • High School students are asked to bring a copy of their unofficial transcript to assist with the selection of course


Proof of Residency

At the time of enrollment, and on an annual basis thereafter, the parent, guardian, or other person having lawful control of the student under order of a court must present proof of residency in the District as required by law.

Acceptable documentation that may be used to verify residency include:

  1. A current lease agreement or mortgage statement;

  2. The most recent tax receipt indicating home ownership; or

  3. A current utility bill (electric, gas, or water bill from the past month).

These documents must be in the name of the parent, guardian, or other person having lawful control of the student. If the parent can't provide one of the documents in his or her name, then the parent must complete the "Parent's/Guardian's Assurance of Bona Fide Residence" packet at the campus.

For a student living separate and apart from his or her parent, guardian, or other person having lawful control under order of a court, the adult District resident with whom the student resides must provide proof of residency in the same manner as a parent and complete an "Authorization Agreement for Voluntary Adult Caregiver" packet at the campus.

For a non-resident student whose resident grandparent provides a substantial amount of before/after-school care, the grandparent must provide proof of residency in the same manner as a parent and complete the "Grandparent's Before/After-School Care Affidavit for Non-Resident Student" packet at the campus.

The District will investigate stated residency as necessary.

Verification of Residency Information

In accordance with law, the District may make reasonable inquiries to determine whether the student is a resident of the District, including when a document submitted for purposes of proving residency is not in the name of the adult who is enrolling the student. Based on an individual’s circumstance, the District may grant exceptions to the requirement to produce a document listed above. When required by law, the District will waive the requirement to prove residency in the District boundaries.
