DENISON ISD PARENT INFORMATION
HOW MAY WE HELP YOU?
Annual Student Update
The annual student registration form is utilized for parents to indicate enrollment intentions for the 2021-2022 school year. If your family is returning to the same campus zone, moving to a different campus zone or out of Denison ISD, it is requested that you complete the registration form regardless of 2021-2022 enrollment intentions.
Annual Registration Process
Denison ISD uses PowerSchool Registration to update information on students returning to our schools each year. By replacing previous paper practices with an online process, the District is reducing paper waste, improving accuracy, increasing efficiency and saving parents time. Guardians will still need to contact the campus at the end of the year to confirm the student is no longer attending Denison ISD.
Based upon the primary student contact listed in the DISD student information system, the parent or guardian will receive a separate email for each individual student with online registration instructions and a unique snapcode that is needed to begin the online registration process for that student. If you are the parent or guardian of multiple students, you will not receive all of these snapcode emails at the same time. If the email of the primary contact has changed, please contact your child’s campus with the student’s name and ID as well as your name.
Invitations to register for the 2021-22 school year will go out June 1-4 to parents and guardians of students enrolled in DISD prior to May 20.
At the end of the online process, parents are required to provide an electronic signature.
Additional Registration Requirements
By law, parents must also provide updated immunization records (if necessary) before school begins in order to attend class regardless of the learning environment (virtual or face-to face). View immunization requirements.
DISD also requires families provide proof of residency each year in order to complete the student enrollment and registration process. View the proof of residency requirements and submission process.
Snapcodes - Reminders for Parents
Parent Login: Please use the email address from last year to login into Power School Registration. If you cannot remember your password to Power School Registration choose “Forgot Password” for instructions to reset it. Helpful hint: Please use the same user name and password for all website/applications for DISD.
If your child will be attending a campus other than the campus listed on the snapcode please continue updating the information. Take the verification page along with your new proof of residency to the new zoned or approved transfer campus.
Choose the preferred contact priority under each contact name. NOTE: Emergency contacts should always be listed after Parent/Guardian in the priority list.
Please note that by naming a contact as a Guardian that is not listed on the student’s birth certificate, you will be asked to complete a Non Parent form. This form gives this person the rights to enroll, withdrawal and act as a Guardian at the student’s campus.
Medical information is now stored year to year. It is imperative that you update ongoing medical concerns. Please indicate yes or no for any factors or medical conditions of which school officials should be aware.
Review and Submit
Review the updated information for your child. Once you are satisfied with the information choose Submit. Note that any area in RED must be corrected before the information can be submitted.
Bus application is completed during your child’s enrollment application by choosing YES, to the question; “Does this student need DISD transportation?”

Please see below for answers to some of the most Frequently Asked Questions regarding the PowerSchool Registration process. Other opportunities for support and assistance will be contained within the PowerSchool Registration invitation email.
Q: What if I already set up a PowerSchool Registration account? A: You must register your child each school year. You will use the same username and password if you have an existing account. The snapcode will be different every year. If you don't remember the user credentials, you may have them emailed to you and/or use security questions set up previously to retrieve that information. Also, you may contact the PowerSchool Registration support line at 866.752.6850 or submit a ticket here.
Q: Should I complete a New Student application for my child if I have not received a snapcode? A: No. Please contact the campus if you have not received a snapcode for your child after June 4th.
Q: What if I did not receive a snapcode for each child? A: Please try checking your email from a computer instead of a mobile device. Check your “junk mail.” If you have not received a snapcode please contact the campus to verify they have the most up to date email address for your family.

Fill out the form, have it notarized, and bring it to your campus along with a proof of residence for the house or apartment you are living in. Do we have this statement? Keep this question?
Q: Can I name a family member as a Guardian that is not on my child’s birth certificate? A: Please check with your child’s enrolled campus. Campus personnel can lead you to the correct answer depending on the family’s circumstance. In most cases, an additional notarized document could be required. Is this wording sufficient?
