Registration for New Students (2021-22 School Year)

Welcome to Lexington County School District Three!

 Please follow the below directions to register brand new students in Lexington County School District Three for the 2021-2022 school year. Please note that these registration instructions are ONLY for students who have never been enrolled in Lexington Three.

 *If you are attempting to register a child for our 4-year-old kindergarten program, please stop here and instead, download the paper registration packet that can be found by clicking this link. Paper registration packets for 4K must be turned into B-L Primary School by no later than July 22nd. Parents who registered their child for our 4K program back in the Spring do not have to do anything further at this time.

**If you are attempting to register a child who has already been enrolled with us, please click here to be taken to instructions on how to register a returning student.

 

 Step 1: Pre-Registration

 1. Please open your internet browser and type in the following address: https://ecollect.accelaschool.com/lcsd3

2. Fill out all of the fields in the Pre-Registration Form and submit it.

3. A confirmation message should appear on the screen when the form is successfully submitted.

4. If you have another brand new student to enroll, you will be given the option to "enroll another." Enter the information for that student and submit the form.

5. After your pre-registration form(s) has/have been submitted, they will be approved by our school personnel and you will receive an email with access information and instructions on how to create an account in the PowerSchool Parent Portal so that you can complete the enrollment process for your student(s). Please check your junk/spam folder for this email if it seems to be taking a while to receive. If you are still not seeing it, you might need to reach out to your carrier to see if they have blocked the email for some reason or you can contact our schools directly. Please do not pre-register your student again. 

6. Once you have received the email(s) with your student(s) access information, follow one of the directions listed below. You should receive an email with unique access information for each brand new student you pre-register.

 

 Step 2: PowerSchool Parent Portal Account & Registration

 Parents who need to create a PowerSchool Parent Portal account should follow these steps:

  • Click the link within the email to create a parent portal account or visit https://lex3.powerschool.com/public/.

  • Select "Create Account."

  • Fill in the details to set up a Parent Account. Multiple students can be linked using their individual Access IDs and Access Passwords found in the pre-registration emails. You should add all of your brand new students to your Parent Portal account at this time.

  • Once you're finished entering the information, select "enter" at the bottom of the screen. A verification email will be sent to your email account. IMPORTANT: Click the link within the verification email to authorize your Parent Portal account before proceeding to complete the enrollment process.

  • After you have authorized your PowerSchool Parent Account and have logged into the system, you can begin the enrollment process.

  • To start, select the student name in the blue bar at the top of the screen.

  • Then, click on "Forms" in the left-hand column of the page.

  • Begin entering the information. There are numerous documents that must be completed for each brand new student. Forms will be listed across the top of the page in tabs. After all forms have been filled out, submit them.

Then, you will click on "Forms" in the left-hand column to begin registering him/her.

  • Once you submit all of your registration forms for each child, school personnel will review them. While the forms are in the approval process, they will display as pending. You should check back to your Parent Portal account frequently to see the status of your forms. If the forms are flagged as red, that means they are incomplete and you should review them and submit them again for approval.

  Parents who need to add a brand new student to an existing PowerSchool Parent Portal account should follow these steps:

  •  Visit the following link to sign-in to your previously set-up Parent Portal account using your existing username and password: https://lex3.powerschool.com/public/

  • From the "Account Preferences" screen the new student can be added using his/her Access ID and Access Password included in the pre-registration email. To do this, select the "Students" tab at the top of the page and then click "Add." Fill out the required information.

  • Once you're finished linking your new students, you can begin completing the registration documents.

  • To start, select the student name that you would like to begin with in the blue bar at the top of the screen.

  • Then, click on "Forms" in the left-hand column of the page.

  • Begin entering the information. There are numerous documents that must be completed for each brand new student. Forms will be listed across the top of the page in tabs. After all forms have been filled out, submit them.

  • If you need assistance with translations in another language, please contact your child's school for assistance.

 

 Important Information About School Fees:

Once your child is successfully registered, you will be able to pay student fees inside of the PowerSchool Parent Portal.

Once you're logged into the system, click on "Balance" in the left-hand column.

There, you should be able to see the fees associated with your child for the 2021-2022 school year.

Before moving on to the next step of this process, copy or write down your child's Student ID Number which can be found on this screen. You will need this number to pay your child's fees in the next step listed below.

To pay fees, click on the blue "eFunds for Schools" button/link in the right-hand corner of the screen. There, you can pay your child's fees online. (NOTE: You do not have to create an account in eFunds to complete this process. Instead, you can checkout as a guest.)

If you do not see fees associated with your child yet, please check back frequently as schedules are being updated on a daily basis by our school secretaries.
