Welcome back to a new school year with Detroit Public Schools Community District!

  • We are delighted to have your family return for a new school year as a part of our community of exceptional parents and students.

    As we begin a new year, we would like to collect some important information. It is critical for the District to have the most up-to-date contact information, health information, and permission forms from our students and families. Our school and our school district will use this information to stay connected throughout the year and to keep our students safe.

    Schools will be distributing Back-to-School packets to all students for the 2023-24 school year. All students that were enrolled in a DPSCD school for the 2022-23 SY should complete a "Returning Student Back to School Packet" and all students that were NOT enrolled in a DPSCD school for the 2022-23SY should complete a "New Student Back to School Packet". Families should complete the packet and return the forms to their school as soon as possible. You can also download a copy of the packet on the right and print it at home.

    All forms should be completely filled out and signed where indicated. If you have already filled out forms in this packet in Spring or Summer 2023, please check with your school to ensure that they received your updated information.

    Important Note regarding Enrollment Documentation:
    If your address has changed, please provide updated “proof of address” documents to your school for review. If your student has an updated immunization record, please provide it to the school. Families of returning students do not need to resubmit birth records.

    We look forward to a great year ahead as we re-engage our students and families and support their growth academically, socially, emotionally, and athletically/artistically.
