Returning Student Registration

Glenwood Community School District is changing registration systems for the 2022-2023 School Year.  The major shift in this process is from using a 3rd party system, that required you to have specific "snap codes" in order to register to using the PowerSchool system we already use for many other functions.  Please follow the steps below in order to register your student(s) for the upcoming school year.

Important Tips for Filling out the registration forms!

There is a lot of work going into ensuring the accuracy of our data, but in some instances we need your help to verify.  So, while a lot of data will prepopulate in these registration forms, it is really important that you review it and help us make sure it is accurate.  Here are some tips that will help:

  • Make sure all phone numbers, email addresses, and physical/mailing addresses are correct
  • Make sure spellings of names are accurate
  • You will read more about Emergency Contacts below, but please try and provide three non-parent/guardians
  • When listing an Emergency Contact, we really only need names, relationship to the student and phone numbers
  • When listing details for parents/guardians, we need as much information as you can provide.  
  • When students have parents/guardians in two separate households, it is really important that you provide the phone numbers, emails, and addresses of both.
  • Other details such as who the student lives with, who has custody, and who is allowed to pick the student up from school are all essential pieces of information

We greatly appreciate your attention to detail this year, which in turn will help ensure accurate data in the future.  Thanks again for you participation in this year's registration effort.  

Step 1

Create a Parent PowerSchool Account

  • Creating a Parent PowerSchool account is required for registration https://glenwood.powerschool.com/public/home.html
  • You should have received a hardcopy set of instructions for creating these accounts in the mail, including the student credentials necessary.
  • If you no longer have access to those instructions, please click the link below
  • If you no longer have the student credentials you need, please contact, gcsdregistration@glenwoodschools.org

 

Step 2

During the Registration period, you will need to access and fill out all forms found in your Parent PowerSchool Account.

  • Log in to your Parent Account
  • On the left side menu, there is a link for "Forms"
  • A picture of where this link is on the menu can be found by clicking the button below
Step 3

Recently found out this step must be completed on a Computer NOT the App.

As described in the Registration instructions, the Home Language Form has to live outside of registration for state reporting purposes.

  • This form should need filled out only once on each student during a student's time in Glenwood
  • We used to do this via hard copy and can now do it electronically
  • Once filled out for each student, you will no longer have access to the form because it is done
  • A picture of where this link is on the menu can be found by clicking the button below
Step 4

Certain Forms will require Approval by the district.  If all necessary information is included, the forms will get approved.  If necessary information is not included, the form will be rejected and sent back to you with instructions for revision.  The most common items that cause a form to be rejected are below:

  • Emergency Contacts: If you are a parent or guardian, you are NOT an emergency contact.  The district will always try to contact parents/guardians first.  Emergency contacts are people the district would contact only if a parent/guardian is not available.  Therefore, when we ask for all parents/guardians and at least 3 Emergency Contacts, we need contacts beyond just parent/guardians.
  • Home Language Survey: We understand this process is not ideal, but you must fill out the separate form in Step 3 in addition to the Home Language Survey listed in Forms.

Are you trying enroll a new student?

New students, who have not been enrolled in Glenwood before, need to start by contacting the building in which the student will attend.  This would apply to students who previously attended in Glenwood, left during the 2021-2022 School year, and are now seeking to return.
