2021-2022 New Student Registration

Welcome to Upper Arlington Schools! There are four steps to our registration process for students (grades K-12) new to the district during the 2021-2022 school year. Please read all of these steps before completing your online registration. To finalize your student’s registration, please make sure you have completed each of these steps:


  1. Begin the registration process by completing the initial application form. The School Enroll Code is: UpperArlington.

  2. Complete and submit all registration forms in the PowerSchool Parent Portal.

  3. Upload all of the required documents in the PowerSchool Parent Portal and confirm that they are ready for a member of the team to review.

  4. Confirm your student's registration through a brief phone appointment with our Registration Office. A team member will contact you to schedule this appointment.

Please do not use the registration link on this page to fill out the online registration forms if you have a student who currently attends Upper Arlington Schools and will be returning for the 2021-2022 school year. Look for back-to-school forms to be available in mid-July for any students currently enrolled and returning in the fall.

STEP 1: Submit your initial registration application

To begin the registration process, please complete a short application form with your student’s information and your household information so that our Registration Office can verify your student’s eligibility and attendance area. Applications will be approved during business hours, Monday through Friday. Please allow up to 24 hours, depending on volume, for your application to be processed.

After you complete the application form, you will receive two emails:

  1. Your application has been received; 

  2. Your application has been approved and you may proceed to completing the online registration forms (Step 2) using the unique required credentials at the bottom of the email.

If you do not receive these emails, please check your spam folder. If you still have not received the emails, or if you have difficulty accessing the online application form, please contact [email protected].


The School Enroll Code required at the bottom of this application form is: UpperArlington.


Step 2: Complete online registration forms

(approximately 45 minutes)

Once you receive the second email, you may complete the online registration forms in PowerSchool, our student information system. You’ll need the unique credentials at the bottom of the second email in order to either add a new student to your existing PowerSchool parent account or to create a new PowerSchool parent account. This case sensitive information is NOT the username and password for logging in. Please refer to the second email for instructions.

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. 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.

Step 3: Upload required documents

As you complete your online forms, you will need to upload the required documentation in the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Please name each file with your student’s FIRST and LAST name as it appears on the birth certificate, and the contents of the file (i.e. Sam Smith Birth Certificate.pdf).

You are required to provide the following documents: 

  • Child’s Birth Certificate. 

  • Photo ID — a current driver's license or passport for the parent/guardian finalizing registration.

  • Proof of Residency — please provide one of the following:

    • Deed or current mortgage statement with the name(s) of parent(s)/guardian(s) listed.

    • Current, Signed Rental/Lease Agreement with name(s) of parent(s)/guardian(s).

    • Purchase/Contract Agreement to buy, lease or build property (if within 90 days of enrollment). Final papers must be provided to the school building when the purchase is completed.

    • Residency Affidavit form 511f2b if you are living with a relative who resides within the district. The homeowner must provide proof of residency.

  • Proof of Immunization. Please have your physician complete this Immunization Report or contact your physician’s office for a copy of your child's immunization record. You must submit this at the time of registration, even if it is not complete.  Please consult the Immunization Information for Enrollment for more information.

  • Custody Papers, if applicable. In accordance with Ohio Revised Code 3313.67.2 and the Missing Children’s Act, the parent/guardian must provide a certified copy of the divorce decree and parenting plan allocating parental rights and responsibilities and/or other documents allocating custody or guardianship.

  • Other documents, if applicable:

    • Individualized Education Program (IEP)

    • Multifactored Evaluation (MFE)

    • Evaluation Team Report (ETR)

    • Section 504 Plan

You will then be asked to confirm that all forms and file uploads are completed and ready for a member of the team to review. 

Please note: Registration cannot be completed and your student may not begin school without the above documents. If you already have a student in the district, you will still need to provide the above documentation to complete the registration process.

If you have any questions, or if you have difficulty uploading these documents, please email [email protected]. Depending on the volume of registrations and emails at the time, please allow for additional time to receive a response.

Step 4: Confirm registration via phone appointment

After your documents and online forms are reviewed, you will receive an email from our Welcome Center to schedule a brief phone appointment to confirm your student’s registration.
