Express Check In


Express Check-In is Now Open

How Do I Access the Express Check-In System?

  • During your window, please log into the EngagED system using your Infinite Campus Parent Portal credentials. Please DO NOT use the direct link you received for your student(s) last Friday as those point to the inoperable system. If you do not know your username or password, please visit this page of our website for more information.
  • Once logged in, you will be presented with information for each of your students. Please complete the check-in process for each of your students individually.

What if I Already Completed the Express Check-In Process for My Students?

If you already completed the Express Check-In process, you do not need to take any further action unless you wish to apply for a bus pass (and are eligible for transportation) - see below.

What if I Started the Express Check-In Process but Could Not Complete It?

If you started the Express Check-In process but were not able to complete it, you will need to log in and go through the process again. The good news is that any progress you made in the Express Check-In tool over the last week was saved and you will simply need to acknowledge each form and each section.

What if I Do Not Complete Express Check-In Prior to the Start of School?

Express Check-In is intended to be a convenient way to update your household and contact information, sign important forms for the school year, sign the current Student Code of Conduct handbook, apply for bus passes (if applicable), and pay any fees. If you are unable to complete Express Check-In prior to the first day of school, your child will still be able to attend school as normal. Not completing Express Check-In will not affect your child’s enrollment.

Can I Find My Child’s Teacher Assignment and/or Schedule within Express Check-in?

You will NOT find information about your student’s teacher assignments, class schedules, etc. in Express Check-In. Details about how to access that information, and when, will come directly from your child’s school.

How Can I Apply for a DCSD Bus Pass?

The bus transportation link can now be found on the landing page when you log into the EngagED website. The link will only appear if your child is eligible for bus transportation. Families who are eligible for DCSD bus transportation (student has a valid AM and/or PM route in our systems) will be presented with an opportunity to apply for a bus pass.  Eligible families who received a bus pass in the past few school years just need to select a billing option in the tool. The annual billing option is available until September 30, 2022 at which time all billing will revert to quarterly billing on a per-ride basis. We encourage parents to sign up for SMARTag notifications via the SMARTag Parent Portal.

Payment of Fees

After completing Express Check-In for all of your students, you will click through to MySchoolBucks to select optional fees and to pay all required/optional fees. Instructions on how to access the system are linked below. If you have previously paid for school lunches you should already have an account for this system. If not, please follow these instructions to create an account.

Special Education records which have been collected by Douglas County School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for the period of five (5) years after special education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes his/her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Douglas County School District's intent to destroy the special education records of students who exited special education services as of June 30, 2016. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise. After five years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for social security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request a copy of the records by requesting the records at this link ( Douglas County School District Transcripts and Records Requests ).
