If your student is enrolled in the National School Lunch Program through their school, you are already enrolled in the Alabama Broadband Connectivity for Students program. You will receive a prepaid voucher by U.S. mail by the end of August. Then all you’ll have to do is call the internet service provider of your choice, give them your voucher code, and sign up for service.

PowerSchool Enrollment Extended

Have you registered your child for school for the 20-21 school year?


All returning students must register through PowerSchool Enrollment annually. The original deadline of May 31st has been extended. If you need a new snap code, one will be emailed to you soon. Should you have any questions regarding PowerSchool Enrollment, please contact our office beginning Monday, June 1st between 7am-1pm. We are happy to help.

PowerSchool Tips

Parents, thank you so much for beginning the process of registering your students.

Here are a few tips to help you during the registration process:


  • If you are NOT finished uploading your documents, DO NOT click submit. You must SAVE & EXIT to come back to it at another time. If you submit, you no longer have the opportunity to make additions or changes. The registration is locked at that point. To make changes or to upload documents, you will have to notify the local school registrar. The registrar is the only one that can make changes or additions after you click SUBMIT.
  • All students should have the requested documents uploaded prior to the beginning of the 19-20 school year (currently enrolled and new students). Our goal is to have the most up-to-date documentation on file for your student.


  • Madison County Schools requires a Huntsville Utility bill as one proof of residency. Harvest Monrovia Water bills are NOT accepted.



  • A second proof of residency should be uploaded (deed or lease or property tax statement or mortgage statement).

MySchoolFees Discontinued at S9GS

Going forward, S9 will no longer offer the option for parents to pay with credit cards via myschoolfees. We hate to see this program go, but cannot justify it to be the best use of funds at this time.
