What if I have more than one student at Minooka CCSD 201? Do I need to fill this in for each student?

Yes, because you’ll need to provide information that is specific for each child. We recommend that you submit one Returning Student Registration form for one student, close the browser tab. Switch to the next student and then click the returning student link off the navigation bar.

  1. Log into your PowerSchool account.
  2. Across the top select the student name, and click on the arrow to the right to switch to a new student.
  3. On the next screen, click on the student name in the drop down, and choose the next student. Click on the box that says ‘All Classes’ to switch over to the next student account. 
  4. From there, complete registration as normal, by clicking on Quick Links > Returning Student Registration

If after switching to Kid #2 in Unified Classroom, but it's still prompting you for kid #1's DOB.. try this as a work around

  1. Log into Unified Classroom (https://classroom.powerschool.com/) as usual
  2. Go to Quick Links > PowerSchool (if on a mobile device) > Portal Login Page 
  3. In the upper left hand corner in the blue bar, click on Riley's name (in my screenshot it says stu 1, 2 or 3)
  4. If on a smartphone you might need to pop out the white arrow to show the navigation bar.  
  5. Scroll down on the navigation bar and find "returning student registration"

It should prompt you for the student #2's DOB now.

I can’t finish this in a single sitting. Can I come back and finish it another time?

Yes, the form will save your progress. You’ll just want to resume on the same device that you started the form on.

  1. Log into the Unified Classroom portal.
  2. Click on Quick Links.
  3. Click on the Returning Student Registration button.
  4. You might need to click ‘dashboard’ to resume a previously started form.

I don’t understand what one of the questions is asking me?

Please contact your child’s school and one of the friendly office staff will answer your question.

Some of the information is already entered, how? Why?

Since your student is a returning student to Minooka CCSD 201, some of the information such as their name, school, grade, and some custodial parent/guardian and/or emergency contacts were able to be pre-populated for your convenience and still require some verification or updating should it be required.

Do I have to answer all the questions?

All the questions marked as required are required to be filled in before submission.

I’ve completed the form, now what?

When you have finished entering your information, click “Submit”. This will send all of the information you’ve entered to the school. If you cannot click on this button, you will need to make sure that you have answered all the required questions.

What do I do if I have more than the one phone number listed for my contact?

Feel free to add additional phone numbers to your student’s contacts.  The online form will not allow for a duplicate phone number, so if in the event that there is one, you’ll want to update the number or remove the number entirely and also remove the phone type.

Uploading Documents:

The registration software provides the ability for parents to upload files (PDFs or pictures) for proofs of residency and medical documentation. 

If you are submitting the form electronically on a computer, then you will need to have all the digital documentation ready to upload when you start the registration process.  

If you are submitting the form electronically on a phone, then the upload buttons will allow you to access your camera and take a picture to upload to the form.

How do I pay my fees?

You may still pay online via PowerSchool. Please see the attached PDF for how to pay fees. Please note that you cannot pay via the smartphone application.
