The 2019-2020 school year is the first year for Livingston ISD to move their registration to an online process. All current and new students will be registered using an online parent portal.
Superintendent Dr. Brent Hawkins says, "We're excited to be moving our registration online. This will help automate this process and cut down on a large number of forms that are sent home on the first day ofschool. We're happy to be joining the other schools in our Region that have already implemented the online registration." Registration for both current and new students opens on Wednesday, July 24 at Livingston High School for all grades Pre-Kindergarten through 12. Registration will continue on July 25, 29, 30, 31 and August 1 at the Livingston High School Computer Lab in the Livingston High School Library from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. On July 29, registration hours are extended until 6:00 p.m. "Assistance will be available at the high school during the registration week, I appreciate the efforts of our district student data system coordinator Kathy Perry and the campus registrars for their work in making this transition that will be a benefit to our families in the district."
