2021-2022 Student Registration
All students who will attend CCSD21 schools for the 2021-2022 school year must register online. This includes students who are registered at CCSD21 during this current school year, incoming kindergarten students, and any student new to CCSD21.
The online registration portal is managed by InfoSnap, a branch of PowerSchool, which manages our Student Information System and Parent Portal. One InfoSnap account can be used to manage registrations for all students in one family. New this year, families can upload required documents directly through the InfoSnap portal rather than bringing paper copies to the District Registrar. Accepted upload formats: .doc, .docx, .pdf, .txt, .rtf, .xls, .xlsx, .bmp, .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, or .png. To prepare for registration:
- New students: Gather birth certificate
- New and returning students: Gather proof of residency, relevant screening forms, and medical documents, if applicable (more information listed below)
- Review your school’s handbook and bookmark the page to access throughout the year.
Students New to CCSD21
Registration for students new to CCSD21 at any grade level, including new incoming kindergarten students, will open on Monday, February 8, 2021.
A child is eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall of 2021 if the child will be five years old on or before September 1, 2021.
Students Returning to CCSD21
Registration for students who currently attend a CCSD21 school will take place as follows:
- Current pre-kindergarten students: Monday, February 8, 2021
- Kindergarten – 7th grade students: Monday, May 3, 2021
All current CCSD21 students will be issued a SnapCode in order to complete the returning student registration process.

Early Entrance Requests
CCSD21 follows Illinois law which specifies that to enter kindergarten or first grade children must be five years of age by September 1st of their kindergarten year or six years of age by September 1st of their first grade year. However, CCSD21 has an acceleration policy that addresses exceptions for children whose potential and skills are in the very superior range when compared with their peers.
