Online Student Registration

18-19 STUDENT REGISTRATION

Beginning April 23, all students who will attend CCSD21 schools for the 2018-2019 school year will be able to register online. This includes currently-enrolled students who will be returning for the 18-19 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. Determine which link to click below if your child is new to CCSD21 or a returning student.

*Note: One InfoSnap account can be used to manage registrations for all students in one family. An account used to enroll a new incoming kindergarten student in February can be used to register older siblings returning for the 18-19 school year.

RETURNING STUDENTS

Parents of students who currently attend CCSD21 and will be returning for the 18-19 school year should have received a unique “Snapcode” in the mail. The “Snapcode” is a unique identifier connected to an individual student. Parents of returning students can enter their child’s “Snapcode” and information already on file will pre-populate. A parent can verify or edit this information. Please call your child’s school if you do not have your child’s “Snapcode”.
