Registering for a DoDEA School using DSIS

DoDEA Student Information System (DSIS) online registration is currently available for families registering in schools serviced by Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA). DSIS online registration reduces manual forms and makes it easy for parents to register their child for school. 

DoDEA parents are also required to annually re-register their student(s). Schools will notify parents when it is time to re-register their students. During this process, parents will be able to update contact information, update Sponsor’s employment status, and indicate whether their student will return for the upcoming school year. 

Universal Prekindergarten: As a condition of enrollment, all universal prekindergarten students are required to participate in the Student Meal Program, and sponsors are responsible for any daily costs associated with meals. (This does not apply to Sure Start, half-day prekindergarten, and preschool students receiving special education services who are not enrolled in universal prekindergarten.)

DoDEA recommends completing the online registration process using a desktop or laptop computer.  The online registration process may not work on a mobile device.
