2021-22 School Year Registration Reminders

_______________________________________

Q: Which students need to enroll for the upcoming 2021-2022 School Year?

A: If you reside within Trussville city limits and wish for your child to attend Trussville City Schools, official school enrollment is necessary. This includes students new to Trussville, PreK and Kindergarten students, and returning students.


Q: How does the enrollment process begin?

A: New students may register via this link and returning students via this link. Parents of incoming Kindergarten students may download enrollment packets on this portion of the district website.


Q: The link says I need a “snapcode.” What is that and how do I get it?
A: A snapcode is a unique number issued to each family and helps a household securely register a student. If you have not received a snapcode or do not remember your snapcode, please contact your school’s registrar. (*REMINDER: school offices are closed on Fridays during the summer). Registrars at each TCS school campus can provide snapcodes for all students in the same family regardless of grade level.


Q: If I have more than one student in the district, do I need to register each one individually?

A: Yes. This is because you will need to provide information that is specific to each child. We recommend that you submit one child’s enrollment completely before starting another. Doing this will allow you to “snap over” shared family information to your other children’s forms, saving you valuable time.


Q: May I save my work and return at a later time to complete the online registration process?

A: Yes.


Q: What if I want to change some information once I finish the online registration for my child?

A: Once you have reviewed and submitted your form online, you will NOT be able to return to that child’s form to make edits. You will need to contact your child’s school registrar in order to make changes.


Q: We used to register through iNow. The webpage says “PowerSchool Enrollment.” Why the change?

A: iNow is going away and your login will no longer work. This was a change for all school systems across the state by the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) in Montgomery. The new platform, PowerSchool, will become your one-stop-shop from now on for each student in your household in terms of registration, grades, schedules, etc.


Q: We are new to Trussville or moved over the summer. How do I know which school zone I am in?

A: Please visit our School Zoning Map and plug in your address to see your school zone.


Q: I have child(ren) at the middle and/or high school. When do we get schedules?

A: Students at the secondary level (grades 6-12) must be fully registered to attend Trussville City Schools in order to receive schedules. Hewitt-Trussville Middle School and Hewitt-Trussville High School will soon announce dates for student schedule pickup.


Q: If I have additional questions, who should I contact?

A: Please email the TCS Student Services Department via zoningandregistration@trussvillecityschools.com or visit https://www.trussvillecityschools.com/Registration
