Returning Student Enrollment Verification FAQs
  • Returning Student Enrollment Verification

    Returning Student Enrollment Verification is an annual process for parents/guardians to provide their student's school with updated contact information, resubmit proof of residency, and complete annual forms required for the student. This process is done online through the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Failure to complete your child's verification may delay enrollment or starting classes for the upcoming school year.

    Completing the Annual Returning Student Enrollment Verification 

    The Returning Student Enrollment Verification form is available to parents/guardians in the PowerSchool Parent Portal. 

    Parents/guardians of currently enrolled students planning to return to the district for the next school year must complete a Returning Student Enrollment Verification form. The link to each student's form is available under the Navigation pane of the student's tab that is linked to their parent/guardian's Parent Portal account. Parents/guardians are required to review the information that is pre-loaded into the form to verify it for accuracy. They are also given the opportunity to be able to update outdated information, fill in anything that is missing, and upload your proof of residency.    

    Withdrawn Students Returning to the District or Changing RichlandOne Schools within the Same School Year  

    Students who attended a Richland One school last school year through the current school year, but have since been withdrawn, may be able to complete the returning Returning Student Enrollment Verification form to expedite their re-enrollment process. If you can no longer access the child's tab in your Parent Portal account, you must be given a direct link and SnapCode. You can request the link and SnapCode from your child's school.

    The link will require you to log into PowerSchool Enrollment; this system is different from Parent Portal. If you’ve never completed an online New Student Registration with Enrollment, you should create an Enrollment account. This allows you to securely save your work and come back at a later time if necessary. You can use your email address or cell phone number.

         - If you already have an account, you can sign in and complete the form. (You should use the same account to complete forms for multiple children. 


    Returning Student Verification FAQs:

    What is Parent Portal?   

    PowerSchool Parent Portal is a school-to-home communication system for attendance, grades, and registration. If you have never used the Parent Portal or have forgotten your username or password, please contact your student’s school. 

    Do I have to answer all the questions? 
    Questions marked with a red asterisk (*) are required.

    What if I make a mistake? 
    If you would like to make a change, click on the underlined field from the "Review and Submit" page or click “< Prev” to return to a previous page.

    I’ve completed the form, now what? 
    When you have finished entering your information, click “Submit.” This will send all of the information you’ve entered to the school. If you cannot click on 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, because you’ll need to provide information that is specific for each child. We recommend that you submit one form and then start another – this will allow you to “snap over” shared family information, which will save you time. 

    I don’t know what a question is asking. 
    Contact your child's school directly if you have questions.
