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 during a designated time (TBD), 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.

Q. My student already has a PowerSchool account, can I use it to complete online registration?
A. No.  The student PowerSchool accounts are not designed for online registration.  Access to PowerSchool Enrollment is limited to parent/guardian access only.

Q. Can I use a mobile device to complete the E-Registration process?
A. Technically, yes. PowerSchool Enrollment is designed to work well on mobile devices. However, we recommend using a laptop/computer.
