WELCOME! Here is Information Regarding RETURNING STUDENTs Online Registration (Opens Aug 6, 2020)
LINK to Online Registration
* All students including those who have preregistered or are a part of the distance learning academy must finalize the registration process in person on August 11th or August 12th.
All students in grades 5k-12th will be responsible for a $30.00 Agenda/Technology Fee.
We are excited to offer parents and guardians of returning students the opportunity to participate in online registration for the 2020-21 school year. On August 6, 2020 our online registration portal will open and parents can update information, complete required documentation, and pay fees electronically. The registration portal will be located on our district’s website: www.gwd51.org. We have provided some information below to assist you through this process. If you feel more comfortable having our staff walk you through online registration you may visit your child’s school from 2:00pm-7:00pm on August 11, 2020 or 7:30am-12:30pm on August 12, 2020.
What’s a snapcode?
The snapcode is like a key to your child’s registration for the upcoming school year. THIS YEAR SNAPCODES HAVE BEEN EMAILED TO STUDENT ISSUED EMAIL ADDRESSES. If your child is unable to access the email, you can contact your child's school after August 6th to receive the 15-character snapcode. The school contact information is below:
Ware Shoals High - 864-456-7923
Ware Shoals Middle - 864-456-2711
Ware Shoals Primary - 864-861-2261
Should I create an account?
- If you’ve never completed the online registration process with the Powerschool Registration Portal, you should create an new account. This 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.
- If you have created an account in the past, you will need to sign into that account and complete the form. (You are able to use the same account to complete forms for multiple children.)
Do I have to answer all the questions?
Questions marked with a red asterisk (*) are required.
What if I make a mistake?
If you would like to make a change, click on the underlined field or click “< Prev” to return to a previous page.
I’ve completed the form, now what?
When you have finished entering your information, click “Submit.” This will send all of 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.
What 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 and then start another – this will allow you to “snap over” shared family information, which will save you a lot of time!
I don’t know what a question is asking.
You can contact your child’s school to ask any general questions about the form or the registration process.
