Important Registration Dates

The 2017-2018 school year is quickly approaching! This year the district is introducing on-line registration (InfoSnap), a feature of PowerSchool, which allows you to register your student(s) online for the upcoming school year. All students are required to be registered using this feature. Online registration is open in your PowerSchool Parent Portal account and is currently available through the first day of school, Thursday, August 24. You can register your student(s) at any point during this time frame. You may also pay school fees online beginning mid-July.

Online Registration Assistance
Available now through August 23, 7:30 a.m.- 4 p.m. at Cedar Falls Schools Administration Building, 1002 W. 1st Street. Assistance is also available by phone at 319-553-2644.

Existing Students
Every family of a current student will need to have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account as well as an account with the online fee payment system, RevTrak. In order to complete the online registration system for the 2017-18 school year you will need to login to the PowerSchool Parent Portal. You can complete the online registration using a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

If you need help setting up your PowerSchool account, please visit the PowerSchool Overview page.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. After I register online, will I need to attend my student(s) parent help time?
A. No. If you need to pay fees using a check or cash, turn in any paperwork, or would like to speak with somebody about specific questions you have regarding the upcoming school year, you are welcome to attend the help time.

Q. Is registering online mandatory?
A. Yes. If you do not have a computer or internet access at home, you can come to the Administration Building, M-F, 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. or to one of the specific parent help times at each building.

Q. After I provide my information online will I still need to complete the paper registration form?
A. No. We are no longer using a paper enrollment form to re-enroll or enroll new students.

Q. Is the information I submit online secure?
A. Yes. PowerSchool uses the same encryption technology that is used by banks and other secure systems.

Q. What forms of payment can I use online?
A. The online payment system accepts credit/debit cards only. (Most major credit card types, but not American Express.) It also has NO finance charges or fees.

Q. My student already has a PowerSchool account, can I use it to complete e-registration?
