Returning Student Registration

Even though we’ve only reached the midpoint of this school year - our sights are firmly on the future! The online registration process for Grade 7 and 8 families has opened as of today! To register for next year, follow the step-by-step instructions below.  

All returning EIPS students are required to complete the form by Feb. 28, 2019.


Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Visit the PowerSchool Parent Portal and log in using your username and password.
  2. Select the student you want to register—located along the top of the screen.
  3. Select the Returning Student Registration Form link on the left side—this is your landing page each day, by default, for the month of February.
  4. Review the information and answer the questions as outlined.
  5. Sign and submit the form.
  6. Repeat steps 2 through 5 for each student attending an EIPS school.


Frequently Asked Questions

I can’t remember my login for the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
If you aren’t able to retrieve your login credentials using the “Having trouble signing in?” link on the Sign In page, contact the school for assistance.

What if I don’t have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account?
Refer to the email you received from EIPS on Jan. 21, 2019. The email includes information about the returning student registration process and instructions about how to set up a PowerSchool account. The instructions are also available on the Division website. If you still need assistance, contact the school.

What if my child is not returning to an EIPS school next year?
The Returning Student Registration Form is not required for any current Grade 12 students. For all other students, you will still need to complete a Returning Student Registration Form even if they are not returning to an EIPS school next year. Simply answer “No” to the first question and select “***This student will not attend an EIPS school next year***” from the second drop-down menu that appears.

Do I have to answer all the questions?
Yes, answers to all questions are required.

What if I make a mistake?
If you want to make a change prior to submitting the form, you can do so in the applicable field. After submitting the form, changes can only be made by contacting your child’s school.

Can I complete the form on the PowerSchool app?
No. The Returning Student Registration Form is not available from the PowerSchool app.

Can I complete the form on my mobile device?
Yes, but the form is not accessible from the mobile version of the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If, after you log in on your mobile device, you are directed to the mobile site, select “Exit to Main PS site” from the bottom of the menu to be directed to the desktop version of the Parent Portal. Alternatively, you can complete the form directly from your desktop computer.

I’ve completed the form, now what?
Once you’ve finished entering your information, click “Submit.” All of the information you’ve entered is then submitted to the school for review.

If you’ve requested a non-designated school or are registering your child for kindergarten, school staff will contact you the week of March 11-15, 2019. They’ll advise you of the outcome of your non-designated school request and inform you of the kindergarten schedule your child will have for the coming year, as applicable. For all other registration, refer to your school website this summer for all the details about planning for back to school.

Help! I’m having trouble.
If you’re having trouble with the Returning Student Registration Form or your PowerSchool Parent Portal account, contact the school for assistance.
