Online Registration Information
Wildcat Family -
As indicated in the timeline sent to you last week, today is the day to roll out our new online registration portal. All families in the district - whether you’re selecting in-person or virtual learning - need to complete this process. This new online process will take the place of our annual residency verification event.
Earlier today, you should have received an email from ParentPortal@harrrisonvilleschools.org with your username and password for the Parent Portal. If you did not receive this or know of another parent who did not get it, please contact Tiffany Cox at the admin office at 380-2727, ext. 1221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
To complete the registration process, you will log into Parent Portal from the link on the website - www.harrisonvilleschools.org - it’s the paper clip icon under the main photo.
**PLEASE NOTE - WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND COMPLETING THE REGISTRATION PROCESS USING A LAPTOP INSTEAD OF A MOBILE DEVICE.**
Once you are in the Portal, you will see a yellow bar with “Online Registration must be completed for the 2020-21 school year.” Click on View.
You’ll see a full page of “tasks” - some of these will require a simple check box, while others will take more time. You can start, stop, and go back later to finish if you need to. To begin, click on Edit next to Welcome.
**There are fields with an asterisk - those are required fields.
At the bottom of each screen, you will need to click on the the box next to “I have completed this form and understand that checking this box is considered to be my electronic signature of the form, certifying that the information above is true and accurate.” then click Next (yellow).
As you begin the registration process, you will start by verifying family information including contact information, emergency contacts, etc. It is important that all contact information is up-to-date as this is what we use for regular and emergency communication.
On the emergency contact screen, if you need to edit any information, click on the three dots in the upper right corner.
Please note that you will be able to upload your residency verification documents during this process if you have a .jpg or .pdf (photo or scan) of the document. If you do not have that handy, you can email it to email@example.com later. As a reminder, residency can be verified with one of the following:
- A current, original utility bill that is no more than 30 days old. The bill must be in the resident’s name, and no final notices will be accepted. UTILITY STATEMENTS INCLUDE GAS, ELECTRIC, AND WATER. THOSE ITEMS THAT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED ARE TELEPHONE, CABLE, AND OTHER STATEMENTS. PLEASE MAKE SURE THE UTILITY STATEMENT INCLUDES YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.
- A rental/lease agreement including names of all occupants, dates of agreement and the name, address, phone number and signature of the landlord.
- A contract to build or purchase a home within the Harrisonville School District reflecting a possession or closing date within 90 calendar days of the first day of school attendance.
If you have a high school student, you can also complete paperwork for a parking pass. You will need the following: Drivers License #, Student Phone #, Home Address, City, State, Zip, Year of Vehicle, Make of Vehicle, Model of Vehicle, Color of Vehicle, License Plate #, Insurance Company, and Policy Number. Again, you can go back later and complete this if you do not have the information on hand.
The system will save whatever you complete and you can go back to finish at any time.
At the end, you will be directed back to the main screen. Any item that is incomplete will be noted as such. You can go back to those items and fill in any missing information or click required boxes. Once all items are complete you will see this…
Click the check mark & you will see this…
Once you see this screen, you have completed the registration process. Remember, if you did not upload your residency verification document, you will still need to email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate your patience as we work through any glitches or hiccups in this new registration process. We know that in the future, using the online tools will make the process more efficient and help to ensure your student’s information and paperwork are correct in our system.
