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. Filling out the online registration forms
Once you are logged in to your PowerSchool parent account, select the 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:
- 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.
Contemporary/Informal Instruction Models: In the online registration forms for your student, 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.
AM/PM Kindergarten Preference: During the online registration process, families will be given the option to indicate a preference for morning or afternoon kindergarten. While we cannot guarantee placement preference, families who complete all online registration forms within the February 10 - February 28 priority window and complete their appointment at the Graf Center (Step 3) within the February 11 - March 3 priority window will have their preference for morning or afternoon placement considered and, in the event of high demand, will be entered into a lottery for their preferred placement. Please understand that to maintain balanced classes, the school principal will make final placement decisions. Families will be notified of their placement on or before March 12.
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 Registration Office at the Graf Center, 2020 Builders Place.
