We welcome you to our schools and hope to work with you to provide the best educational experience for your child.
POWERSCHOOL ONLINE REGISTRATION
The district has fully transitioned to an on-line registration portal through PowerSchool (formerly InfoSnap). All students - new and returning - will need to complete the PowerSchool Online Registration. Online registration through PowerSchool is mandatory and is necessary for students to access school computers and attend school field trips. Additionally, it is important that we have current contact information and emergency medical contacts.
**POWERSCHOOL ONLINE REGISTRATION WORKS BEST USING MOZILLA FIREFOX, CHROME, AND SAFARI WEB BROWSERS! PowerSchool Online Registration does not work well using Internet Explorer.**
New students are those who have never attended Sidney City Schools, as well as those who have previously attended but withdrew and attended school elsewhere before returning to Sidney.
In order to begin the PowerSchool Online Registration and enrollment process, please complete the Registration Information and Request for Records forms. The Registration Information form provides us with the basic information required to allow families to access InfoSnap Online Registration.
Request for Records
In order to register your child, you will need the following required documents:
- Student's Birth Certificate
- Student's Social Security Card
- Student's Immunization Record
- Proof of Residency - mortgage, lease, utility bill, bank statement, check stub, etc. (a driver's license is not valid proof)
- Custody Documents - as applicable
Once you have provided the central registration clerk or building secretary with the Registration Information and Request for Records forms, you will be given an PowerSchool Registration SnapCode letter, which contains your child's SnapCode and instructions on how to access PowerSchool Online Registration.
Complete PowerSchool Online Registration/Enrollment instructions can be found below.
PowerSchool Online Registration requires creating an account using an email address. Please refer to these instructions on how to create a gmail email account.
The online registration process for new students will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. In addition to basic residential information about your child, you will need to be able to provide emergency contact information, doctor/dentist names and phone numbers, health history, and parent/guardian employment (as applicable).
New students enrolling at Sidney High School and Sidney Middle School will also need to allow for time, in person, to discuss scheduling options with a counselor or administrator.
Sidney City Schools accepts students looking to open enroll into the district. Those interested in doing so should call or visit the Board of Education office during normal business hours.
Sidney City Schools online registration for the upcoming school year is now available. This online registration process through PowerSchool Registration replaces the traditional paper forms previously sent home at the start of each school year. Once you have a valid email address and your child's SnapCode, you will be able to start PowerSchool Online Registration. PowerSchool Online Registration is accessible via smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Many data fields for returning students are prepopulated with information submitted last year - in these cases, verify the information is correct. The online process for returning or current students will take approximately 10-15 minutes.
