Welcome back to the 2020-21 school year!

This electronic, online process is required each year for all MDIRSS students. From the comfort of your home, parents and guardians are able to electronically review, update and sign all required documentation for your child in one spot.

This year, the process will look a little different, and will require that parents and guardians to create a PowerSchool parent account if you don't already have one and link your children to that account.

Creating a new account and/or adding additional children to your PS account will require unique per child access ID's and Passwords that will be sent to you separately by email. But once the link occurs, you will only need your MDIRSS PowerSchool Parent Account information in the future.

Please note that returning students are those who were enrolled with an MDIRSS school on the last day of the 2019-20 school year. If you’ve moved within MDIRSS schools, don’t worry, the process is the same but you will have to contact the new school to transition enrollment from the previous school to the new school.

Here's what parents/guardians need to do:

If you have a PowerSchool Parent Account:  Log in and follow the Returning Student Information Update Process to locate, review and update all forms.

If you don't have PowerSchool Parent Account: Follow the How to Create a PowerSchool Parent Account Guide.  Your child(rens) access ID and Passwords have been emailed to your on or about August 24th from the school.  When your account is created and your children have are linked to your  your PS Parent account follow Step 2 in the Returning Student Information Update Process.

For parents of more than one student, you will need to complete the registration of one student FIRST and submit it.
Once you have successfully submitted one Returning Student Registration, click on the current student name in the top left of the header and select the next student from the list and proceed with reviewing and submitting all forms for each remaining children.

If you have questions, please view the FAQs for Returning Students or check the Parent Guide.

Parents and guardians should complete this update by September 6.
