Online Registration Overview
What is PowerSchool Enrollment?
PowerSchool Enrollment is the District’s online enrollment system that handles both NEW student registrations and RETURNING student back-to-school registration updates. PowerSchool Enrollment 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 online enrollment, 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. Promoting/Matriculating student families complete these back-to-school registration forms via their PowerSchool Parent Accounts.
Online enrollment has replaced much of the annual paper registration packets for returning students, saving parents valuable time. Your school site sets up your initial PowerSchool Parent Account. Keep your Parent Account information in a safe location; this is required to complete mandatory annual back-to-school registration forms.
We are a current RUSD family. How do I get started?
Create a PowerSchool Parent Account. If you have never created a PowerSchool Parent Account, please contact your school office during regular office hours for assistance (school sites are closed the month of July). It is only necessary to create a PowerSchool Parent Account one time. With this parent account you will log in annually to complete back-to-school registration forms. Forms open annually on July 15th.
Once you are logged into your account, click on the Back-to-School 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.
To complete this process for multiple returning students, you must navigate to each student from your PowerSchool Parent Account and launch the "Back-to-School Registration" process from within each individual student's profile (student's are alphabetized by first name in the top blue bar). Once launched, the first step in making the connection is entering the DOB for the student you launched. You will not be able to verify multiple students from a single student's page; you must navigate to each individual student in order to move forward. Returning/Matriculating students must be validated through this returning student process. Erroneous NEW student registrations found for returning students in the NEW form will be deleted. Please take the time to complete this process correctly.
We are a new RUSD family. How do I get started?
For students brand new to RUSD (have never attended any RUSD school site before), and students that are returning after leaving RUSD for any span of time, the NEW student registration portal is open for the current 2020-2021 school year (blue button). Registration for the future 2021-2022 year does not open until after spring break. Click on "New Students" on the right to proceed. **During this COVID-19 school closure, please take the time to upload the requested registration documents so the enrollment can be processed contactless.**
Please note, there are times when two academic school years are open. Each academic year will have a different registration link. Erroneous registrations do not transfer and will be deleted; take the time to read and select the correct registration link.
