The district introduced Online Registration a few years ago, a feature of PowerSchool, which allows you to register your student(s) online for the upcoming school year. All students are required to be registered using this feature.

Preschool Registration Information

New Students

Families enrolling students who did NOT attend the Muscatine Community School District in the 2019-20 school year should visit our Enrollment Information page for links to enroll new students.

Existing Students

All families are required to use the online registration system, known as PowerSchool Enrollment.  As such every family of a current MCSD student should already have a PowerSchool account.  In order to complete the online registration system, you will need to log in to your existing PowerSchool Parent account.

If you have forgotten your PowerSchool Parent username or password, click the ‘Having trouble signing in?’ link that appears on the login page and answer the questions presented. PowerSchool will email you additional instructions, assuming it matches the email address you provided on file.  If you do not receive any email messages within 10 to 15 minutes, try the other email addresses you have access to.  If you continue to have problems, please do NOT create a new account. Contact either your student’s home school for additional assistance or send an email to Be prepared to answer a few questions so that we can protect your account security.

You can also call or stop by your student’s home school for additional assistance or send an email to

Kindergarten Students of Existing Families

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve tried to anticipate some of the questions that may come up, which we provide answers for here.

Q. After I register online, will I have to also go to my child’s school(s) as well?
A. No. If you need to pay fees using a check or cash, turn in any paperwork, or would like to speak with somebody about specific questions you have regarding the upcoming school year, you are welcome to do so, but these things can be done at any time at your student’s home school.

Q. Is registering online mandatory?
A. Yes. If you do not have a computer or internet access at home, you can come to your student’s home school beginning July 22, 2019, and use one of our computers.

Q. After I provide my information online through PowerSchool Enrollment, will I still need to complete the paper registration form?
A. No. We are no longer using a paper enrollment form to re-enroll students.

Q. Is the information I submit online secure?
A. Yes. PowerSchool uses the same encryption technology that is used by banks and other secured systems.

Q. What forms of payment can I use online?
A. The online payment system, InTouch, accepts credit/debit cards only. (Most major credit card types, but not American Express) It also has NO finance charges or fees.
