To complete the registration process on PowerSchool, please have  a current utility bill (from June or July) available. You will be prompted to submit a photo of the front and back of the utility bill. Please submit images from both sides of the utility bill.

Residency can be verified with one of the following utility bills if in the name of the parent/guardian:

Spire natural gas bill, KCP&L electric bill, or water bill are accepted. The utility bill must include the residence address and the name of the parent/guardian. June or July bill statements only and no final or disconnect notices will be accepted. Contact your child's school with any questions.

Notices for any middle school and high school back-to-school payments will be sent to parents in August. 

*Elementary and early childhood students do not have fees associated with the back-to-school process.


Frequently Asked Questions

I can’t remember my login for the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
Click the “Having trouble signing in?” link on the Sign In page to reset your password. If you are still having trouble, email our helpdesk at

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 prior to submitting the form, you can either navigate back to the page using the “Prev” and “Next” buttons or if you are on the Review page select the underlined field. If you have already submitted the form you will need to contact your student’s school so they can make the changes for you.

I’ve completed the form, now what?
Once 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, you will need to provide information that is specific to each child. We recommend that you complete and submit one form and then start another. This will allow you to “snap” (or share) selected family information, which saves you time.

Help! I’m having technical difficulties.

For technical support, visit our PowerSchool Community help center or click “Help” from any form page.
