How to Register Your Child


Current Student Registration Information

Cedar Falls CSD is excited to announce online registration for the upcoming (2017-2018) school year! This will replace the paper forms previously used by the District. This is ONLY for students who are currently in Kindergarten through sixth grade.

You will be able to access your student's registration information through the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If you have not set up your PowerSchool Parent Portal account you will need to complete it before being able to start the online registration. An email was previously sent on the steps needed to set up your account.

Once you are logged into your PowerSchool Parent Portal, you will need to click on the Returning Student Registration link that is on the left side of the screen. It will look like this:

If you have more than one child, you will need to complete the registration for all children in your household. We suggest that you submit one and then start another – this will allow you to snap over shared family information, which will save you time.

For technical support email your questions to or call our PowerSchool Support line at 319-553-3004.

Transfers & Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment vs. Rules Exception for Attendance Outside the Resident Area

If you live outside of the Cedar Falls Community School District boundaries and you wish to have your child(ren) attend Cedar Falls Schools, or you live within the school boundaries and wish to have your children attend a different district, that is an Open Enrollment situation. For those who live within the Cedar Falls Community School District but wish to have your child(ren) attend a school that is outside of your resident area (example: you live in the Holmes Jr. High resident area but wish to attend Peet Jr. High), that is a Rules Exception. All Rules Exception requests must be made in writing to either the Elementary (Mrs. Pam Zeigler) or Secondary (Mr. Dan Conrad) Director of Education (depending on your child(ren)'s grade level).
