After receiving the third and final email, you may begin to complete the online registration forms in PowerSchool, our student information system. At the bottom of that email are the required credentials to add a new student to an existing PowerSchool parent account or to create a new parent account. These credentials are case sensitive.
Parents/guardians with an existing PowerSchool account
If you have an existing PowerSchool parent account, you will log in to the Parent Portal
using your existing username and password. Click on Account Preferences in the left navigation column. Click on the Students tab, then click the Add button. A popup window will open. Complete the requested information by using the access ID and password listed at the end of the email you received.
If you need assistance with your existing parent account, please contact email@example.com
Parents/guardians new to PowerSchool
If you do not have an existing PowerSchool parent account, you will click on the Create Account tab on the PowerSchool
log-in page. To create an account, you will be prompted to enter your name and email address and a username and password. To link your student to the account, scroll down to Link Students to Account and use the access ID and password listed at the end of the email you received.
If you need assistance in creating your parent account, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Filling out the online registration forms
Once you are logged in to your PowerSchool parent account, select the eCollect Forms link in the left navigation column. Individually select and complete ALL of the required forms. Be sure to click the Submit button at the bottom of each form to save your work.
You will need the following information to complete these forms:
- Previous school information, which includes the name, address and phone number of the last school (including preschool) your student attended.
- The names and contact numbers of two emergency contacts other than parent(s)/guardian(s) — trusted local adults the school can contact if the parent(s)/guardian(s) cannot be reached.
- Your student's detailed health information to be provided confidentially to the school nurse.
If applicable, custody information regarding your student. Supporting documentation will be collected later in the enrollment process.
If you are registering a student kindergarten through fifth grade, you will also be asked to identify your choice of two instruction models offered at the elementary level: Contemporary and Informal. If you choose the Informal Program, which is offered at Wickliffe Progressive and Barrington elementary schools, you will be prompted to fill out an Informal Program Choice Form.
If you need assistance with the completion of these forms, please contact email@example.com or call (614) 487-5220.
Once all online registration forms have been completed, you will be prompted to choose a date and time to complete the registration process at the district's central registration office at the Graf Center, 2020 Builders Place.
While we cannot guarantee AM/PM placement preference for incoming kindergarten students, families who complete the online registration forms within the February 16 - March 5 kindergarten registration window will have priority scheduling for morning or afternoon kindergarten.
