Posted Date: 06/12/2017

Online Enrollment will be upon us quickly and we want you to be in the know. We will be using e-Registration in PowerSchool and are excited to continue streamlining and simplifying the enrollment process for parents and school employees. Below you will find all the information you need for the 2017-18 enrollment:
 
New This Year

  • Transportation Deadline to Enroll: In order to start the year with smooth bus routes, we ask that parents enroll their students for transportation prior to Aug. 4. Signing up after this date will not allow your student to ride the bus for the first two weeks of school. Late transportation enrollments will begin busing Aug. 30. Route information will be available to parents in PowerSchool on Aug. 11 (or Aug. 25 for parents who signed up after the Aug. 4 deadline).
  • RevTrak and PowerSchool Connection: The district has implemented the connection of RevTrak, our fee payment program, and PowerSchool. Now when fees are paid online through RevTrak, they will automatically reflect in PowerSchool on the fees page of their status.
  • SchoolMessenger InfoCenter: We are always looking for ways to help us improve our communications with you. One way to do this is by using SchoolMessenger InfoCenter. InfoCenter allows you to personalize how you receive communications from your school and/or district. In addition, InfoCenter centralizes those communications in a unified inbox. We encourage you to sign up for InfoCenter by visiting infocenter.schoolmessenger.com or download the mobile app from Google Play or the Apple App Store.
  • SchoolMessenger SMS: Coming this fall, Andover Public Schools will be utilizing the SchoolMessenger system to deliver text messages, straight to your mobile phone with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts and more! SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy Pledge, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone. Stay tuned for more information.

 
New Students
New students can enroll online starting July 17. Parents must first complete the New Student Registration form found at www.usd385.org. We encourage you to complete this step before July 17 so you can enroll in a timely manner. If you would like to enroll in person, new student enrollment will be held at each Andover school Aug. 4 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. If you are uncertain which school your student will attend, use the “School Assignment Locator” at www.usd385.org.
