PowerSchool - Snapcodes (Information)

PowerSchool logo


Emails have been sent out with parents'/guardians' unique PowerSchool snapcodes on 9/29/2022. It will allow parents/guardians to access the Returning Student Registration to complete the annual update. It will be sent to the email addresses on file for parent/guardian #1 and #2. When one parent/guardian begins the update, THAT same person must be the one to complete it. The other parent/guardian will get an error if they try to update after the other parent has begun.

Please make sure we have your correct email address on file. See additional information regarding Parent/Guardian snapcodes below.


What’s a snapcode?
By using the link in this email, you are automatically entering your child's snapcode. The snapcode is like a key to your child’s Returning Student Registration for the upcoming school year. You should receive a unique snapcode or snapcode link for each child. 

Should I create an account? 
- If you’ve never completed an online Returning Student Registration, you should create an account. This allows you to securely save your work and come back at a later time if necessary. You can use your email address or cell phone number.
- If you already have an account, you can sign in and complete the form. (You should use the same account to complete forms for multiple children.)

Do I have to answer all the questions? 

No, but some questions are marked "Required" and must be answered before you can submit your form.

What if I make a mistake? 

If you would like to make a change, select the underlined field or choose “Prev” to return to a previous page.

I’ve completed the form, now what? 
When you have finished entering your information, select “Submit.” This will send all of the information you’ve entered to the school. If you cannot select this button, you will need to make sure that you have answered all required questions.

What if I have more than one student in the district? 
Do I need to do this for each child? Yes, because you’ll need to provide information that is specific for each child. We recommend that you submit one Returning Student Registration and then start another – this will allow you to “snap over” shared family information, which will save you time. 

I don’t know what a question is asking. 
You can contact your school building with questions.

Help! I’m having technical difficulties.
For technical support, visit our PowerSchool Community help center or select “Help” from any form page.
