Online Registration
Frequently Asked Questions


The district tries to make the back–to–school registration process as easy as possible for our parents by offering online registration. In addition, all Lexington County School District One schools hold class assignment/schedule pickup dates prior to the first day of school. At that time, parents and students can pick up class assignments, pay school fees, purchase meal tickets, join the Parent Teacher Association or complete other necessary paperwork.

This year our district will again offer parents an opportunity to register their student(s), fill out some paperwork and even pay fees online before schedule pick up days through the Online Registration system. This should streamline the process for parents especially on schedule pick up day at your student’s school.

This page provides some frequently asked questions and the answers to help with registration.


Do I need to provide a birth certificate?

If your child has been attending school in Lexington County School District One schools, you do not need to provide the birth certificate again.

All the information that is “required” in Online Registration is marked as required. 


Do I still need to bring proof of residency to the school on schedule pick–up day?

Yes. You will need to bring a current electric bill/statement or other utility bill showing your name and home address within the district and your S.C. driver’s license or other state or federal photograph identification.

If you are unable to produce any of the documents listed above, please contact the school or the Office of Student Services at 803-821-1029 to discuss alternative documentation that may be acceptable.


If I am enrolling my child for the first time, can I do that online by following the Online Registration links on the district’s website?

No. Before you do anything, make sure you know which school your child will attend by going to our website and choosing the "School Locator" link under the “Schools” tab at the top.

Once there, just enter your home address. The system will let you know what schools your child will attend. Then, go to the school and enroll your child by establishing an initial enrollment record. You will need to bring your child’s birth certificate, a completed S.C. Certificate of Immunization and proof of residency.

For proof of residency, bring a current electric bill/statement or other utility bill showing your name and home address within the district and your S.C. driver’s license or other state or federal photograph identification.

If you are unable to produce any of the documents listed above, please contact the school or the Office of Student Services at 803-821-1029 to discuss alternative documentation that may be acceptable.

Once you enroll your child, the school can provide you with a secure code (snapcode) that will allow you to complete the remainder of the Online Registration information.


What is a Snapcode?

A snapcode is like a key to your child’s data for the upcoming school year.

You will receive a separate and unique snapcode for each one of your children each school year.

Please make sure that you enter the snapcode exactly as it appears with no spaces or punctuation.


If I enrolled my child for kindergarten in January, do I still need to register online?

Yes. This online process allows you to register your student for the new school year, fill out some paperwork and even pay fees before schedule pick up days. Then, you will have many of the things already done that you normally do when you go to the school.

You’ll still need to go to find out your child’s teacher, prepay for a yearbook, join the booster club or PTA/PTO, pay for parking passes — things like that. Consider it an online version of the old method of going from table to table at schedule pick up day.


Is there a fee to use Online Registration?

No. There is no fee.


Does Online Registration charge us a fee when we pay our school fees online?

Note that there is not an additional convenience or transaction fee for payments made online with a credit card.


Should I create an account?

If you created an account for a previous school year, you will use that same account.

If you created an account but do not remember your login information, keep reading for more information.

If this is the first time you are using Online Registration, you will need to create an account. You can use your email address or mobile telephone number to create and log in to your account.

Setting up the account first enables you to securely save your work and come back at a later time. This helps if something happens, you get interrupted or you just need to finish later.


What if I created an account last year but I can’t remember the email address I used?

For technical support, visit this page or click on the HELP icon from any Online Registration page.


What if I do not remember the password I used for my account?

On the Account Sign In page, click the “Forgot Password?” link to have instructions sent to the email address you used on your account.

-OR-

You can use the “Help” tab on the registration page to get assistance using Online Registration’s Online Help Center.


Do I have to answer all the questions?

You must fill out any question marked as required.


Do I have to pay my fees online?

No. Although you register online, you do not have to pay your fees online.

You can pay your fees at school on Schedule Pick Up day when you pick up your child’s teacher assignment or schedule information. Just choose the “Skip Online Payment/Handle at School” option on the payment page.

If you select an optional elective fee, such as yearbook, parking, PTO/PTSA, or athletics, online payment is required. You will need to change your option on these fees if you do not wish to pay online.


The payment page seems slow.

Once Submit is clicked on the payment page, parents should not close or stop the browser or use the browser back button. Please wait and allow 1-2 minutes for the page to process. A change should not be made to the payment type once Submit has been clicked on the Payment page.


CAN I GO AHEAD AND APPLY FOR FREE AND REDUCED MEALS?

If you'd like to go ahead and do that, you can. Just visit www.lunchapplication.com to complete your ONLINE application within minutes from your smart phone or computer. This is completely private and is 100 percent secure.

If you have any questions or run into any problems, feel free to call Food Service and Nutrition with any questions at 803-821-1186.


I qualified for free or reduced price meals last year.

If you want to register online and feel that you may qualify for free or reduced price meals, just choose the “Skip Online Payment/Handle at School” option on the payment page. Note that if you select an optional elective fee, such as yearbook, parking, PTO/PTSA, or athletics, online payment is required. You will need to change your option on these fees if you do not wish to pay online.


What if I make a mistake?

If you would like to make a change, prior to submitting the form, you can navigate back to a previous page or move forward to the next page using the “< Prev” and “Next >” buttons.

If you are on the “Review” page, just click on the underlined field to return to that page.

If you already submitted the form with an error or inaccurate information, then you will need to contact your child’s school. They can then make the change for you.


I’ve completed the form, now what?

Once you finish entering your information, click “Submit.” This sends all of the information you entered to the school. If you find that you cannot click on this button, you need to make sure that you have answered all REQUIRED questions marked as required.


What if I have more than one student in the district?

We’ve learned that it is helpful to complete and submit one form for just one of your children before you start on another form for another child.

Once you do that, then you will able to “snap” (share) your family information (such as your contact information) that is the same for each of your children and won’t have to enter it again. However, you will need to provide certain information that is specific only to that child.


I’m not sure how to answer a question. I don’t understand what the question is asking.

You can call your school to ask any general questions about the form. A list of schools and the front desk telephone numbers for those schools can be found here.


How do I print a copy of my submitted registration?

Log back in to your account. On the dashboard it says view a submitted form. Click on desired registration. You will see a submission confirmation page and there is a blue link on that page that says click this registration link to print a copy for your records.
