If you have a student that completed the 2022-2023 school year with Liberty Public Schools, and will be returning for the 2023-2024 school year, you will be required to complete a Returning Student Registration. Beginning Monday, July 10, 2023 parents will be able to log onto their PowerSchool Parent Portal account and select the Returning Student Registration tab in the left column. When arriving there, you will then be able to update your student’s information for the upcoming school year. We ask that this process be completed for each of your students before Monday, August 7, 2023.
Finally, if you have a returning kindergarten, 6th, or 9th grade student, you will be required to verify residency. You will be able to upload your residency verification items within the Returning Student Registration (ex: utility bills, lease agreement, etc.). For additional information regarding required documentation click here. If you do not already have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account and need to set one up, you can do that at any time by following the steps on the Liberty Public Schools website under “For Families” then “PowerSchool” or click here.
Helpful Tip: To save time, please have your Required Documentation (residency proofs) ready before beginning the registration process. This will help you complete the registration in one setting. The documents you will need are listed below.
