2021-2022 Registration

  • Online 2021-2022 (upcoming school year) registration is open for returning preschoolers, returning K-8 students, and new K-8 students.

    Are you a returning family?
    Start the process by logging into your ParentPortal account.

    Returning student (grades K-8): Registration for returning students entering grades 1-8 and First Steps students entering kindergarten is completed through the Parent Portal Link. Information was sent to current families on April 8 via the email address you have on file with the District. Information on creating an account or using the portal.

    Are you new to the District with a child ready to enter grades K-8?
    If you do not currently have a child in a D63 school, start the online registration process below. 

    Here’s how to get started: 

    • Identify which school your child will attend by entering your address into our School Locator.
    • Once you know which school your child will attend, fill out the Initial Registration Worksheet to begin the registration process.

    Note: Children entering kindergarten must be five years old as of September 1, 2021.

    Registration does require the submission of a number of forms. You'll be asked to upload these forms during the registration process. If you are unable to do so, you may bring any forms to your school office. 

    First Steps Preschool returning student registration: Registration for students returning to preschool for the 2021-2022 school year received an email from First Steps with additional registration information on April 7. New families interested in enrolling in preschool should visit the First Steps website. 

For New Families: What Happens Next?

  • What happens after I complete the worksheet?

    • Once this form is submitted, the school will email you information about how to set up a Parent Portal account or, if you already have an account (because you have an older child in our District), how to proceed.
    • Once your Parent Portal account is set up, complete the rest of your registration through this portal. If you have technical difficulties or need assistance, email your school

    Our Parent Portal includes a “Required Documents” section. If you are able, provide scanned or digital copies of your child's birth certificate as well as the proof of residency, as requested. In any case, you will need to provide these before your registration will be approved. If you are unable to provide scanned or digital documents you may bring your documents into the school office.  

    What do I need to have on hand to register online?
    You will need to have a birth certificate, proof of District residency, and completed health information forms if possible. If it is not possible to submit completed forms at registration, please note that students can not start the school year without submitting completed forms.
    What bus will my child take? What time will s/he be picked up and dropped off?
    Bus schedules vary by school. When you register your student, you'll have the option to request bus service. If you’re registering for the 2021-2022 year, you'll receive more information about routes and times over the summer. If you’re registering for the current year and need bus service, speak to your school office.
