19-20 Student Registration
All students who will attend CCSD21 schools for the 2019-2020 school year will be able to register online. This includes currently-enrolled students who will be returning for the 19-20 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.
All students new to CCSD21 for the current 18-19 school year (enrolling mid-year), or students who need to re-enroll to complete the current year, should register online. Please find more information here.
Students New to CCSD21
Registration for students new to CCSD21 at any grade level, including new incoming kindergarten students, will open Monday, February 11, at 9:30 AM.
A child is eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall of 2019 if the child will be five years old on or before September 1, 2019. Public Act 84-1430 states that (1) a certified copy of the child’s birth certificate, or (2) other governmental documentation of the child’s identity and an affidavit explaining the inability to produce a copy of the certified birth certificate, be provided. Additionally, proof of full-time residency within CCSD21 is required before a student may begin attending our schools. Other state and local requirements include a physical examination, dental examination, vision examination, appropriate immunizations, and lead screening by a physician.
Parents of students who currently attend CCSD21 and will be returning for the 19-20 will be able to register their student(s) later this spring.

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.
