Finalizing Registration

  • Review any applicable supplemental forms.
  • If your student will require transportation; please visit this link.
  • You may then proceed to register another student if applicable.

If you have questions please contact your student’s school or Central Office at 319.372.7252.

A reminder that if you were unable to upload documents, you will need to bring the following documentation to Central Office located at 1930 Ave M, Fort Madison, IA 52627:

  • birth certificate
  • immunization records
  • proof of residency, such as a utility bill, lease agreement, insurance bill, bank statement
  • custody papers if applicable
  • IEP and ETR if applicable

We MUST have these forms before the registration process can be completed.

Do I have to answer all the questions? 

No, but some questions are marked “Required” and must be answered before you can submit your form.

What if I make a mistake?

If you would like to make a change prior to submitting the form, you can either navigate back to the page using the “Prev” and “Next” buttons or if you are on the Review page select the underlined field. If you have already submitted the form you will need to contact your student’s school so they can make the changes for you.

I’ve completed the form, now what?

Once you have finished entering your information select “Submit.” This will send all of the information you’ve entered to the school. If you cannot select this button you will need to make sure that you have answered all required questions.

What if I have more than one student in the district? Do I need to do this for each child?

Yes you will need to provide information that is specific to each child.  We recommend that you complete and submit one form and then start another. This will allow you to “snap” (or share) selected family information, which saves you time.

Help! I’m having technical difficulties.

For technical support, visit our PowerSchool Community help center or click “Help” from any form page.

You may also email us at to get password assistance. Please be sure to include as much information as possible (your name, your student’s name, grade, building). 

Lastly, you can call our buildings or Central Office and speak to someone directly.
