Parents with returning students in Chesterfield County Schools can avoid long registration lines at the school by taking advantage of online registration. Parents will receive an email and a letter through mail with a code that will enable them to link to the site and register their student.
“We have tried for the past several years to make our registration process more parent-friendly,” says Chesterfield County Schools Superintendent Dr. Harrison Goodwin. “With online registration, we can remove the inefficiencies associated with paper-based processes, saving time and money. More importantly, we improve student safety by having confidence in accurate data, including changes in contact and emergency information.”
PowerSchool Registration will tentatively open on Tuesday, July 31, and will allow parents with returning students to complete registration online, significantly reducing time spent at the school. However, a call-out to all families through our notification system will confirm the exact date.
Making enrollment and registration simple and convenient for families got the attention of Executive Director of Information Technology Dr. Tammy Haile.
“The online process will allow our parents to provide the required information in an easy-to-use format and allows our schools to reduce paperwork and access information quickly and easily,” she says.
Parents who register online will still need to go to the school during on-site registration to show proof of residency and pay any fees. Parents with students who will be new to Chesterfield County Schools must still register their child at the school during on-site registration. As a reminder, a tax notice, a landline telephone bill, or a utility bill such as water, gas and electric that contains a street address will be accepted as proof of residency. A cell phone bill will not be accepted as proof of residency.
Onsite registration will be held August 7 at each CCS school. Parents that would like to complete registration on a computer at the school are welcome to come in to complete the process and pay any fees. High schools will offer a second registration day August 8. Parents should receive information notifying them of registration times.
Both Dr. Goodwin and Dr. Haile agree that completing the online registration process prior to Registration Day will save families a significant amount of time on that day.
