Students who attend Skokie School District 73.5 are automatically added to PowerSchool, the student information system used by our schools and teachers. Parents/guardians of new and returning students must use the PowerSchool Parent Portal to update student information during the registration process; to look up attendance, schedule, grade, and report card information during the school year; and to update student demographic and health information as needed.
Getting ready for 2018-2019 registration...
We are excited to introduce PowerSchool Registration for the 2018-2019 school year. This online system ("e-registration") allows the district to collect and verify all student demographic, emergency, and medical information for your child(ren) prior to the start of the new school year. PowerSchool Registration will also allow you to copy generic family information, such as address and emergency contacts, to all other students in your family; and electronically sign the annual permissions, photo and video releases, and device take-home agreements. E-Registration will open for the 2018-2019 school year on July 9, 2018.
In early July, the Technology Department will send a letter and/or email with instructions for using PowerSchool Registration for your student(s). The mailing will contain a secure “snapcode” that links directly to your student’s information. You will log in to your account and submit a registration form for each student in your family.
Families should take action and complete the PowerSchool Registration forms as soon as possible after receiving the mailing and before our scheduled Residency Verification Days on July 24th and August 1, 2018. If you do not have access to the Internet, contact your child’s school and you can make an appointment to use a school computer to complete the process. You can also use computers and free Internet access at Skokie Public Library.
Parents/guardians of all NEW students: The email address provided to the district at the time of registration is your PowerSchool Parent Portal username.
Parents/guardians of returning students: Please use the same PowerSchool Parent Portal username and password that was set up during the previous school year(s).
