SJSD Introduces Online Enrollment for 2020-21

(June 15, 2020) As the St. Joseph School District plans for the school year ahead, steps are underway to ensure a safe return for students and staff amid the ongoing pandemic. The district will provide updates in the weeks ahead to help you prepare for any changes that may be necessary due to guidance from local and state officials. For now, we wanted to update you on a change that is coming to our registration process.

The St. Joseph School District is excited to announce an online student enrollment system for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year, PowerSchool Enrollment. This online process replaces many of the registration forms that students typically bring home to be filled out. 


PowerSchool Enrollment provides families with convenient 24-hour a day, seven day a week access to the online registration feature. Online enrollment is open to new students entering kindergarten through 12th grade,including out-of-district Hillyard students. This does NOT include pre-school. 


If you do not have access to the internet either at home or elsewhere, please watch for dates on which you can come to the building to register. Computers and staff will be available to help you.


Parent Note: The online student enrollment process represents only some of the requirements parents fulfill as they enroll their child in district schools. Because certain requirements vary from school to school, please check with your child's school to see what additional paperwork may be required.


Returning Students to SJSD

If you went to a school in the St. Joseph School District last year you will receive a snap code in the mail, once you receive this code you may access the online registration system. These codes were mailed the week of June 15, 2020. If you have not received your code by July 1, 2020 contact the SJSD helpdesk at 816-671-4444 or email helpdesk@sjsd.k12.mo.us.


Once you receive your student’s snap code, click here to enter your student’s snap code and begin the returning student registration process.

Many buildings will also have an in-building component to finalize registration, so please watch for information from your school regarding those dates.


New Students to SJSD

New students are those who did not attend a school in the district last year and are entering grades K-12. Parents of preschoolers SHOULD NOT register them online. Students who are moving to a different school are still returning students and should wait for their snap code. 


1. Please fill out the online student registration form. After you create an account, click on "New Student Registration 2020-2021."

2. New students, make an appointment to meet with the Principal at the school.

3. You will need to bring the following information with you to your appointment or request your previous school to send your records before we can enroll you:

  • Transcript

  • Withdrawal grades (if withdrawing during the year)

  • Immunization Record

  • IEP & Summary (if applicable)

  • Proof of Residency, such as a lease agreement or utility bill showing the student lives in the school's attendance area

What information do I need to fill out the form?

In order to save time, it is important to gather required documents that will be needed for registration and ensure you have access to update your student's medical and personal information. The necessary documents include: 

  • Updated medical information including an up-to-date Immunization Record.

  • Updated personal records. For example:

    • Current home addresses

    • Updated cell phone numbers to contact guardians

    • Updated cell phone numbers for emergency contacts

  • Proof of Residence. Each student registering to enroll in the St. Joseph School District is required to provide proof of residency documentation during the enrollment process. You must provide one or more of the following documents, showing the student lives in the school's attendance area, for proof of residency:

    • Property tax statement (current year)

    • Utility bill (recent)

    • Real estate contract (signed)

    • Rental/lease agreement (signed)

You will have the option to upload an electronic copy of proof of residency documents during the online registration process. However, you may still be asked to provide a hard copy to the building for review.

We are excited to provide online registration to the parents, and guardians, of the St. Joseph School District.


If you need any help with the process, or additional information, don’t hesitate to contact the SJSD helpdesk at 816-671-4444 or email helpdesk@sjsd.k12.mo.us.
