What is InfoSnap?
InfoSnap is the District’s online enrollment system that handles both NEW student registrations and RETURNING student information updates. InfoSnap is a secure process that not only allows brand new families to register online prior to visiting a school site; it also allows the District to annually verify all student information in PowerSchool, which is our student information database. Utilizing InfoSnap, parents/guardians can electronically sign the annual permission forms for school district policies, update phone numbers, make address changes, update emergency contacts, update health forms, etc. Returning student families complete this process via their PowerSchool Parent Accounts.
InfoSnap will replace much of the annual paper registration packets for returning students, saving parents valuable time. During our inaugural year (2016-2017) each school site implemented information verification for returning students at different times. Secondary school sites implemented during Fall registration whereas elementary school sites implemented during back-to-school nights and/or parent teacher conferences.
Each family of a returning student received multiple letters with your access keys to establish a Parent Account and link your account to your student(s). Keep your Parent Account information in a safe location; this is required for annual back-to-school processing.
Why is RUSD making this change now?
For families, InfoSnap eliminates the need to fill out and return lengthy paper packets to your school. For schools, it minimizes data entry for staff and increases accuracy in our records.
We are a returning RUSD family. How do I get started?
Create a PowerSchool Parent Account. Parent Account information has been sent out multiple times from each of our school sites. If you have never created a PowerSchool Parent Account, please contact your school office for the necessary access keys to proceed. It is only necessary to create a Parent Account one time. With this parent account you will log in annually to verify student information and complete back-to-school forms.
Once you are logged into your account, click on the InfoSnap Online Registration link from your left navigation menu. Once in your student's record, verify your student's information making any necessary changes and additions throughout the process. After you have completed all required questions and agreements, you are ready to submit. From the submission page you will also have the ability to print any needed medical forms that need to be submitted to the school office among other school site notifications.
