Online Registration For Returning Students In Hamilton County Begins On Wednesday

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

The start of the school year usually involves a lot of paperwork for parents and schools as parents fill-in the same information multiple times on a variety of different paper forms, and school personnel spend hours inputting the data into the computer system. Those chores will become a problem of the past as Hamilton County Schools has taken the registration process digital. 

 

Registration is online this year to streamline providing student and parent information.

Parents can access online registration on the district’s new website.

Registration is necessary for all students from first grade to seniors in high school during the online registration.  If you do not have access to a computer, you may register at your local school. Contact your school to find the days and times computers will be available to register. You can also contact the district office.

Parents of returning students will need a “Snap Code” for the online registration to access a child’s current information.  The school system mailed the codes to each current student’s home address to allow parents to register online.  If you did not receive a “Snap Code” or have misplaced the   code, contact Hamilton County Schools.  The contact information is available on the online registration web page, or you may call (423) 498-7104. Registration for first thru twelfth-grade students in Hamilton County Schools will continue until Tuesday, Sept. 7

Two proof of residency documents will also be required. Acceptable documents for proof of residence can include a current electric, water, gas, phone, or cable bill from within the last 60 days in the custodial/guardian’s name. Please make a pdf copy of the documents or take a picture of them with your smartphone to upload into the online registration system. 

The new online registration process will be for returning students in the school district.  Students attending Hamilton County Schools last year will have current information populated into the online registration documents that parents will access with the “Snap Code.”   Parents are asked to please review the information in the system to make sure it is accurate.  If changes are necessary, you can change the information on the online form.  If you have more than one child in the system, you will be able to automatically populate information to the registration of additional children after the first child’s registration has been completed. 

 

The online registration system is new, but the process should be a tremendous time saver for parents and school personnel. For technical support, parents can visit the school system’s PowerSchool Community help center at https://help.powerschool.com or click “Help” from any page while you are in the registration system.

Not “Barry Parker,” but just “Barry.” John could have sent that message to hundreds of people and they would have instantly ... (click for more)
