HOW TO REGISTER
Welcome to 2021-2022 Returning Student Registration for District 124
Returning Student Registration is back online! To enroll your child/children for the 2021-2022 school year, simple log into your Power enrollment account and follow the easy on-screen prompts. All District 124 families are required to prove residency and pay school fees annually.

If your child/children WILL NOT be returning to District 124 for the 2021-2022 school year, immediately call the school secretary to begin the proper student transfer out paperwork.
To begin the enrollment process, there are three (3) steps required to complete before a student can be placed into a classroom:
STEP #1: Complete Online REGISTRATION
Student(s) who are in a D124 school during the 2020-21 school year can enroll online NOW! Parents should have received an email or a letter with a SnapCode for each District 124 student that contains a personalized link to complete the online enrollment. If you did not receive an email, but did get a school letter, use the below link to begin the enrollment process for the 2021-2022 school year. If you have not received your child/children SnapCode, please contact the registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When logged in, verify that the contact information for your student is up-to date and make changes as needed. Sign-off required district forms and pay annual fees. The opportunity to pay your fees online is optional, however, if you do make a payment be aware that the registration process is not complete until you establish residency pursuant to Board policy 7:60, Residency.
