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.

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.
Informal / Progressive Instructional Program at Barrington and Wickliffe
If you are registering an elementary student, you will also be asked to identify your choice of two instruction models offered at the elementary level: contemporary and the alternative informal / progressive program. Barrington, Greensview, Tremont and Windermere offer the contemporary instruction model to students living within their attendance area. Wickliffe Progressive Elementary School is a school of choice and does not have an attendance boundary as it offers the alternative informal / progressive program to students living in the Greensview, Tremont and Windermere attendance areas. Barrington Elementary School also offers the alternative informal / progressive program to students living in that attendance area.
If you choose the alternative informal / progressive program, you will be prompted to fill out an Informal Program Choice Form during the online registration process.
