    ENROLL A CURRENT STUDENT FOR 2020-2021

    It is time to register your current District 7 student for the upcoming school year! You can access system through your smart phone as well as any other device.  (If you're new to the District and need a Snapcode, you should enroll as a new student. See those instructions below.)

    If you do not have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account: 

    • Enter your student’s snapcode by clicking the buttons above. Both English and Spanish versions of the registration process are available. Snapcodes have been sent to families via Email as well as U.S. Mail.
      • Should I create an account? Creating an account allows you to securely save your work and come back at a later time if necessary. You can use your email address or cell phone number.
    • Complete the registration process by following the page prompts.
    • Repeat this process by entering the snapcode for each student you need to register.

    If you have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account:

    • PowerSchool parent portal users MUST use the portal to register your student in order to link registration to your current account. You will not use a snapcode.
    • Log in to the parent portal at https://spart7.powerschool.com  on your phone or another device. The Parent Portal app does not support registration, so you must use the URL.

    Can’t remember your login credentials? Contact your child’s school for assistance.

    • Once inside the parent portal, select the first student you wish to register in the top menu.
    • Click the “applications” icon in the upper right side of the screen and select “2020-2021 Returning Student Registration” from the dropdown menu.
    • Agree to the terms and conditions and click “Begin Forms.”
    • Repeat this process for each student you need to register.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do I have to answer all questions? Questions marked with a red asterisk (*) are required.

    What if I need to correct a mistake? To edit, click the underlined field or click “<Prev” to return to a previous page.

    I’ve completed the form, now what? When you finish entering information, click “Submit.” This will send the information you’ve entered to the school. If you cannot click on this button, you will need to make sure that you have answered all required questions.

    If I have more than one student in the district, do I need to do this for each child? Yes, because you’ll need to provide information that is specific for each child. We recommend that you submit one registration before starting another – this will allow you to “snap over” shared family information, which will save you time. 

    I don’t understand a question/I am having technical difficulties. Please contact your child's school for help.
