Registration and residency verification for returning students needs to be completed by August 6th, 2021 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 7th, 2021. 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, 2021 to be accepted as proof.  

    Families registering with an affidavit must do so in-person. To schedule an appointment to pick up an affidavit from the main office, please contact your child’s school after August 2nd. If selecting an affidavit for Category A to prove residency, access to the online Parent Portal will not be accessible until August. A follow up in-person meeting with administration will be scheduled to verify residency documents. The registration deadline for families registering with an affidavit is Friday, August 13th to avoid a $25.00 late processing charge (per student).

  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 2021-2022 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 August 6th, 2021 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 July 5th through July 30th for the summer and will reopen on Monday, August 2nd, 2021.
