2023-2024 Returning Student Registration

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:  If your child is not currently enrolled in a Berkeley County School, you should complete the new student registration form.

Berkeley County School District is requiring parents/legal guardians of ALL returning students, enrolled in BCSD the last day of the previous calendar school year, to complete an Online Returning Student Update and to provide two proofs of residency. This mandatory process will be completed through PowerSchool Parent Portal ONLY. If the parent/guardian has never created a Parent Portal Account or has forgotten their username or password, they will need to contact the school for assistance.

  • Families who do not have reliable access to the internet can make an appointment at their child(ren)’s school to use a device to complete the returning student update.

  • This update process is only for reviewing/updating information for students who will be returning to Berkeley County School District for the 2023-2024 school year.

  • This required process will allow you to enter accurate parent/emergency contact information, upload the required two proofs of residency, complete required annual forms/policies and provide transportation information for each student enrolled with the District.

Parents with a Parent Portal account can access the Returning Student Update via the Parent Portal button below. Parents without the ability to register online will need to contact the school to arrange a date and time to register in person.

Student Meal Information:

Berkeley County School District Child Nutrition Services provides nutritious breakfast and lunch meals at all district schools. ALL students are set up with a meal account to charge on when needed. New students are on a paid status until an APPROVED free or reduced meal application has been completed. Free and Reduced Meal Applications for the 2023 – 2024 school year are available online.  We encourage all Berkeley County families to apply for these benefits (including families on SNAP, TANIF, or MEDICAID). The free/reduced priced meal program affects a variety of areas unrelated to school meals, including school funding, internet access, college application fees, SAT/ACT fees, AP testing and more. Students that will be attending the following schools do not have to apply for free and reduced meal applications: College Park Elementary, College Park Middle, Cainhoy Elementary, Timberland High, H.E. Bonner Elementary, Macedonia Middle, St. Stephen Elementary, St. Stephen Middle, J.K. Gourdin Elementary, Cross Elementary, and Cross High.  If you have multiple students in the district and one attends the school above, you will still need to complete an application for those students that do not attend that school. Any questions regarding free or reduced applications can contact 843-899-5054.  Parents/ guardians are responsible for all charges made by their students.

Berkeley County Child Nutrition Services are able to accommodate an array of food allergies and dietary restrictions. If you need more information regarding these accommodations, please contact our office at 843-899-8775 to schedule a meeting for menu planning and to obtain the proper paperwork.
