2016-17 Student Registration

We are already working hard to get things ready for the 2016-17 school year and a big part of that preparation is student registration. All returning students will be receiving a registration letter that contains a code needed to start the returning student registration process. The letter will direct you to click on the Online Student Registration Link. That link is below and is only to be used for returning students that have a registration code also referred to as the Snapcode. 

 If you are a new student with Lamar County Schools for the 2016-17 year you will need to complete the New Student Registration application. The link for new students is below.


NOTE: In order for a child to enroll in the Lamar County School District, the student's parents/guardians must annually provide the information listed below. Upon receipt of this information, the school administration will make the appropriate school and classroom assignment.
• Two proof of the child's residence in accordance with the Student Verification of Residence Policy and state law
• A CERTIFIED birth certificate for the child (only required if not already on file)
• A proper (Mississippi Certificate of Immunization Compliance-Form 121) immunization report issued through a physician or through the health department
• A student not living with a parent must present official documentation as to guardianship status
Student Verification of Residence Policy
The Mississippi State Board of Education adopted a verification of student residence policy on April 20, 1990. The definition of student residence for school attendance purposes is that the student physically resides full time, weekdays/nights and weekends, at a place of abode located within the limits of the school district. This policy requires that all school districts absolutely verify a student's residence for determination as to whether the student may legally attend a school in the district. The Lamar County School District must verify residence on each student to be enrolled. Post office box numbers are not acceptable for verification purposes. A street address/name must be provided. Two current proofs of residence are required. Proofs of residency must be original documents and will be authenticated before being accepted as proofs; these proofs must be dated within the past 30 days. Home visits may be made to verify residence by a Compliance Officer. Documentation may include the following:
• Filed homestead exemption form
• Mortgage Documents
• Lease Agreements
• Current utility bills (power, gas, water, cable and phone; no cellphone bills)
• Driver's License
• Voter Registration Card
• Tax receipts
• Other Official Documents (as approved by the School Administrator)
