2024-25 new student registration

How to pre-register:

  1. After 9 a.m. February 7, visit Use the light red button for “2024-25 new student registration

  2. Create an account by choosing a username and password through PowerSchool Enrollment (or sign into Powerschool if you already have an account)

  3. Complete the form and hit “submit”.

  4. Once pre-registration is submitted, families will need to prove residency by submitting proof of residency online or submitting documents at your student’s school 

Residency verification for kindergarten and new students

Once you have completed the pre-registration through PowerSchool, you must next verify your child’s age and that you live in the district’s boundaries. Pre-registration is not complete until you have submitted an original birth certificate and the proof of residency documents.

When pre-registration is complete, families should call their school to schedule an appointment to submit residency documents. Staff will be available from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, March 1, to accept residency documents. (March 1 is a Teacher Institute Day with no students in school.)

All families must bring an original birth certificate to the school. Birth certificates cannot be submitted electronically.

Questions regarding registration and residency can be directed to the district office Barb Kosartes at (630) 545-3514.


Proof of residency must include at least ONE of the following documents:

Current mortgage statement, a signed lease, or a real-estate tax bill.

(If the family is submitting an affidavit from a local resident who attests to the registrant living with them at no cost, the homeowner is still required to provide a current mortgage statement, a signed lease, or a real-estate bill.)

Proof of residency must include at least TWO of the following documents:

Current gas, electric, or water bill; driver’s license; home/apartment rental insurance papers; auto registration; or voter registration.

Once all residency documents are received, families will be mailed a “SnapCode” that is used to complete registration on April 3.

Returning students

In March, the family of returning students will receive the SnapCode they need to register via U.S. mail. The SnapCode will be used when registration opens to all students on April 3. If the SnapCode is lost or misplaced, families will need to prove residency.
