New Student Registration
Welcome to Lake Bluff School District 65!

We are excited that you have chosen to enroll your child in the Lake Bluff School District for the 2016 - 2017 school year!

There are several steps that you will need to take in order to get your child/ren officially registered for school.
 Step One:  Register Online using InfoSnap Pre-Registration Form
Our school district uses an online registration system called InfoSnap. You can fill out the registration form (one per student is required) by clicking here.

Step Two:  Provide The District With Paper Documentation
Prior to enrollment, each student must present evidence that s/he may attend school in the District.  

Requirements and actions that MUST be completed to establish residency:

  • Must present a certified or registered birth certificate for the student
  • Must present proof of residency within the District by providing three documents as listed below:
  1. Driver's License with home address in the District
  2. Home ownership title or deed
  3. Apartment lease
  4. Voter registration
  5. Utility bills (water, electric, gas) within the past three (3) months
  6. Automobile insurance with the home address in the District

Telephone and cable bills are not accepted as proof of residency.

These items of identification will be reviewed by the District employee interviewing the parents/guardians at the time of registration. A parent/guardian MUST complete the steps to verify residency prior to a child being enrolled. Please plan accordingly.

Anyone with a custody order seeking to enroll a student MUST present a court order, agreement, judgment or decree that awards or gives custody of the student to any person (including divorce decrees awarding custody to one or both parents).

You can find out more information about our residency policy by clicking here.

Step Three:  Officially Register & Pay Fees 
Once you have registered using the InfoSnap gateway AND provided the District with the documentation listed above, you will be sent a "Snap Code" to login to our online registration system. Here, you will provide us with more information about your child, electronically sign agreements regarding acceptable computer use, and pay all of your fees.  This step in the process should take around 30 minutes to complete if you have all of the information that is necessary to complete the registration.

 Step Four: Get Ready for School  
Once you have officially registered, you will want to come back to this page to get some additional information. Class schedules and teacher information will be available in the early part of August and information about bus routes will be available the week before school begins.
