When Families Move

Your assistance in keeping us informed of your new address is greatly appreciated, and certainly helps us better serve your child(ren).  If you plan on moving or have already moved, please update your address by logging into your PowerSchool Parent Portal. Log into your Parent Portal: 



Grades K-8 $52.00
Grades 9-12 Fee based upon class schedules/costs

All Grade Levels: ChromeBook Insurance $25.00
The Chromebook Insurance Fee of $25.00 is due the second Friday of the first day of your student(s) attendance at Defiance City Schools.   This payment will cover the cost of damage of the device while it is in possession of the student off campus.

Defiance City Schools is now taking payments online through! Pay when it’s most convenient for you with a computer or mobile device. This is for Chromebook insurance and student fees only; lunch payments will still be made through K12-Mealsplus.  Save time and be confident that your payment makes it where it needs to go. You can pay online with debit or credit cards. In addition, you can use Auto-Replenish to save time and worry!
