Student Enrollment Information

Schiller Park School District 81 is using an online registration process for the current and upcoming school year. In order to successfully enroll your child to attend one of our three outstanding schools, you will need to complete a three-step process in which you:

  1. fill out and submit the required registration documentation
  2. prove that you reside within the boundaries of the school district
  3. payment of registration fees


  1. Pre-Registration:
    Pre-registration is an online process that will be available beginning the week of March 5th, 2018. Parents/Guardians will need to log-in to online registration on the district website to complete the online registration forms. Go to this link to begin. Support will be available from 9:30am-3:00pm in the school offices if you need access to a computer or need assistance. To register your returning student(s), please log-in to your PowerSchools Parent Portal. This reference guide will help you navigate the registration process through PowerSchools. If you are registering a returning student and have not created a Parent Portal Account, you will need to create your account. You must create a Parent Portal Account in PowerSchool prior to registering your returning student.

    If you are NEW to District 81, you must call the school office where your child will be attending to have an account created. You will then receive log-in and password information to begin the registration process.
  2. Residency Verification:
    In order to finish the registration process for your child, we need to verify that you reside within District 81 boundaries. To do this, you will need to bring or provide 3 proofs of residency, accompanied by the mailed Proof of Residency Form. All documentation must be dated after July 1, 2018 to be accepted as proof.

    Residency verification can be completed on the following days at Lincoln Middle: July 24th (10am-3pm), July 25th (11am-7pm), and July 26th (10am-3pm). You must bring all required documentation to prove residency in person.

    Registration and residency verification needs to be completed by July 26th, 2018 to avoid a $25.00 late processing charge (per student).

    To ensure the Illinois School Code is followed, District 81 has partnered with American Heritage Protective Services to verify that all students enrolled in District 81 reside within the District’s boundaries.
  3. Fee Payment:
    We highly encourage you to PAY ONLINE by credit card during the pre-registration. This process operates in the same manner as paying lunch fees  online. You may also submit payment in person at the school office via Cash, Credit Card or Check (made payable to Schiller Park School District 81).

    Your child will not be placed on a class list until registration is complete, including payment of fees.  If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact your child's School.  Please note, all District 81 school office staff and administration will be at LMS for the summer, should you have any specific questions related to your child’s future enrollment.  School offices are closed from June 22nd through July 20th for the summer and will reopen on Monday, July 23rd, 2018.
