    Parents of all new students, including Kindergarten students, may begin the registration process as follows:

PLEASE COMPLETE ALL the REQUIRED SCREENS.

    RETURNING FAMILIES: PLEASE RETURN TO ENROLLMENT/REGISTRATION HOME PAGE AND VISIT “RETURNING STUDENTS”

     


    Please note:  Duneland Schools are undergoing a reconfiguration as we head into the 2024-2025 school year as we close Chesterton Middle School and expand our Liberty and Westchester campuses to house middle school students.  For the duration of the 2023-2024 school year CMS will still be used to help new families register for both buildings.

    STEP 4: CURRICULAR FEES
