HOW MAY WE HELP YOU?
2021-22 New Student Enrollment
To register your child for the 2021-22 school year, please read and complete the steps outlined below:
Online Registration Form
To begin the online enrollment process, first create an account with Powerschool registration by following the registration form link and selecting “Create Account” on the left. Enter your email address, name and phone number and create a password for your account. Remember the email address and password associated with your account. Denison ISD utilizes PowerSchool Registration each year to update information on students returning to our schools. Parents will utilize the same email address and password in future years to sign-in if they previously set up an account. You will then be prompted to enter basic information regarding your child.
Gather Required Documents
Denison ISD requires a parent or guardian provide the following documents to complete the registration process:
Certified Copy of Birth Certificate
Immunization Records (View Immunization Requirements)
Proof of Residency (View Acceptable Documents) Please note: if you cannot yet produce a current utility bill with a Denison ISD address, a contract on a home or apartment lease will suffice until you can provide a current utility bill (required before starting school).
Last Report Card / Unofficial Transcript (high school)
Driver's License of Enrolling Parent · Submit Additional Documentation/Qualification Criteria for Pre-K Students (required to enroll in the free program)
Social Security Card (Optional)
Please be sure to review the documents accepted for proof of residency and double-check that your child's immunization records are up to date and reflect all the requirements of the state of Texas, which may vary from other states/countries.
If a language other than English is spoken most of the time in your home and by your child, you will be contacted by your child’s campus to schedule an assessment date to determine your student's eligibility for the appropriate language program: bilingual education or English as a Second Language (ESL).
Finalize the Enrollment Process
Once you have completed the online registration form and uploaded the required documents, you will receive a confirmation email. Please note, however, that enrollment is not complete until the documentation is reviewed and processed by District staff. Denison ISD will process new student registration in the order in which online submissions were received.
Middle and High School Students
Secondary counselors or a counseling representative will call to schedule an appointment to facilitate the course selection process based on transcripts or report cards from the student’s previous school.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is PowerSchool Parent Portal?
A. PowerSchool Parent Portal is a secure and private online resource that allows parents to enroll new students. It is also used for verifying information on currently enrolled students at the beginning of a new school year.
Q. I want to enroll my child, where do I find the link?
A. Visit the Denison ISD website at www.denisonisd.net . Click the Enrollment icon or Parents link and select Denison ISD Enrollment. Click New Student Enrollment and scroll down to select the enrollment link. (English or Spanish)
Q. What is my login information?
A. Parents must create a new account by entering their email address and a password of six or more characters. Applicants must fill out all required fields of the form to create a login.
Q. How do I create a new account?
A. Enter a valid email for parent. This email is used for communication from your child’s school as well.
Q. I don’t currently have an email account. How do I obtain one?
A. An email address is required for PowerSchool. Google and Yahoo offer free email accounts.
Q. Should I create an account for each parent?
A. It is preferred to create one account per household where the child resides. This account will have the ability to enroll a new student, as well as update information on a currently enrolled student (aka, returning student) at the beginning of a new school year.
Q. How do I change my parent portal password?
A. From the Parent Portal login page, click "Forgot Username or Password." An email will be sent to the email used as login information with a new password.
Q. I am not able to complete the entire process at this time. Can I save what I've done and come back to complete at a later time?
A. Yes, at the top right of screen is a circle with your initials. Select that circle and select 'Save and Sign out'. Your child’s records are considered ‘In Process’. You can come back at a later time and pick up where you left off.
Q. In the Documents section, I see there is an “upload” option for each of the required documents. How do I do that?
A. Do not hit “submit” until all your documents are uploaded. Doing so will delay the process of your student’s registration.
Probably the easiest way to submit, especially for single page documents, is to take a picture of the document with your phone.
Click the upload button, and for Choose file, navigate to your photos and choose the correct picture.
Click upload and move on to the next document.
If you have access to a scanner, you can scan the individual documents in and save them to a file on your computer. You can then upload the documents (one per required document).
Q. Are all the documents required?
A. Yes. No registration will be processed without the submission of all required documents listed.
Q. How do I get documents to you if I cannot upload them?
A. Please do not email any documents since most emails are not secure or encrypted. Uploading is fairly simple, but if you cannot upload them, please call your campus for assitance.
NO REGISTRATION IS COMPLETE nor a spot at any school secured until we have all the required documentation.
Q. I have finished the registration and submitted it, but it tells me: “You have not completed all required fields and met all format requirements.” What do I do?
A. A summary page will appear with a red symbol to the right of any field with errors.
Click on the red symbol to be taken to that page, make corrections, and click on Summary at the bottom left of the page. If red symbols still appear, you must correct errors on those pages and then click again on summary.
Once all errors have been cleared and the Submit button at the bottom of the page is activated, upload required documents and submit the registration.
A successful submission will result in a page with the message, “Thank you for Submitting Your New Student Registration…” If you have another NEW student to register, click the New Student Link on this page to register an additional student.
Once the registration is complete, be sure to click your initials in the top right corner of this page to save and log out.
Q. I submitted my child’s online enrollment, but I need to change some information. How do I make corrections?
A. Once a student’s data has been submitted, a parent no longer has access to the record. They must contact the school to make necessary updates to the data.
If you have general questions regarding the enrollment process, please contact your child's future school or email is firstname.lastname@example.org
