Annual Verification Guidance

Parent/Guardian Annual Verification of Existing Student Census Data via Parent Portal
We are pleased to announce the opening of the Annual Verification function within the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Parents/Guardians can now complete their annual verification of existing student Census information via the portal.

Local School Responsibilities:

 School registrars and other school staff who perform registration duties should be processing applications and enrolling students daily. The steps for processing Annual Verification applications are the same as for processing New Student Registration applications. To see your school’s applications, log into Infinite Campus, and go to Staff Processing. Once there, ensure your school is selected, and click the “Search Applications” button. When the results appear, you will be able to differentiate between existing and new student applications by looking at the “Status” and “Type” columns:  

  •  Annual Verification (existing student) applications will have a status of Submitted-Existing and a type of Portal - Annual Update. 
  •  New Student Registration applications of will have a status of Submitted-New and a type of New.

 If a parent/guardian contacts your school with registration concerns, you can check the application status in Infinite Campus and also check the comments section for any relevant information. 

 Support Tickets: For timely resolutions to registration application issues, please submit a Help Desk Ticket in Incident IQ so that it can be routed to the appropriate team/person for handling.  

 OLR Call Center: During peak registration times, please be patient, as call wait times can be extreme. Thank you for your understanding!

Registration and Chromebook Update

Greetings, Obama Family! Due to the global pandemic, all DeKalb County buildings are still closed to the public. As a result, all students new to the DeKalb County School District must complete registration online and upload all required documentation to Infinite Campus (our Student Information System).

I have provided a link for your convenience to get started with registration:

If you have already completed this process, we thank you in advance.

Additionally, the district is still developing the plan to distribute chromebooks to students who need them. We should be able to provide additional information about the chromebook distribution in August. Please continue to stay safe and be patient with us as we journey through this uncharted territory.

Staying Connected During COVID-19


As our country continues to manage the COVID-19 emergency, Comcast is taking immediate steps to make it easier to connect low-income families to home Internet.

  • Free for Two Months to New Customers Now Through June 30: We are extending our offer of 60 days of complimentary service for new customers through June 30. Internet Essentials usually is available to all qualified low-income households for $9.95/month. 
    • For all new and existing Internet Essentials customers, the speed of the program's Internet service has increased to 25 Mbps downstream and 3 Mbps upstream.
    • Households with outstanding debt owed to Comcast may be eligible for Internet Essentials. We are waiving this qualification if you apply and are approved by 6/30/20. After 6/30/20, standard eligibility rules apply. Click here for all details. 
  • Xfinity WiFi Free For Everyone: Xfinity WiFi hotspots in business and outdoor locations are available to anyone who needs them for free – including non-Xfinity Internet subscribers. For a map of Xfinity WiFi hotspots, visit http://wifi.xfinity.com/#find-a-hotspot
  • Pausing Our Data Plan: With so many people working and educating at home, we want our customers to access the Internet without thinking about data plans. While the vast majority of our customers do not come close to using 1TB of data in a month, we are pausing our data plans for 60 days giving all customers Unlimited data for no additional charge. 
  • No Disconnects or Late Fees: We will not disconnect a customer's internet service or assess late fees if they contact us and let us know that they can't pay their bills during this period. Our care teams will be available to offer flexible payment options and can help find other solutions.
