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. Fees are not collected during registration.

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:

  1. New students: Gather birth certificate
  2. New and returning students: Gather proof of residency, relevant screening forms, and medical documents, if applicable (more information listed below)
  3. Review your school’s handbook and bookmark the page to access throughout the year.
