Registration and residency verification needs to be completed by July 24th, 2020 to avoid a $25.00 late processing charge (per student).

  1. Pre-Registration:
    Pre-registration is an online process that will be available beginning the week of June 8th, 2020. 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. 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 fill out and submit the Pre-registration for Enrollment form by clicking on this link
  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 beginning July 1st. All documentation must be dated after July 1, 2020 to be accepted as proof.  

    Families in need of an affidavit must contact school offices after July13th to schedule an appointment to pick up the form (in person).  A follow up in-person meeting will be scheduled to verify residency documents.

  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.   
  4. Registration Confirmation: 

    Upon successful completion of all three registration steps (above), you will receive a confirmation verification email, affirming your child is enrolled for the 2020-2021 school year. 


    Your child will not be placed on a class list until registration is complete, including payment of fees. All steps of the registration process for returning families must be completed by July 24th, 2020 to avoid a $25.00 late processing charge (per student).


    If you have questions or are unable to complete the steps above, please call the school offices or contact your building principal via email. 


    School offices are closed from June 13th through July 12th for the summer and will reopen on Monday, July 13, 2020.
