Posted Date: 06/22/2015

We are gearing up for the 2015-16 school year and are always seeking ways to improve. It is important to us that the enrollment process is as customer friendly as possible for our patrons and our employees. Our goals for this year’s enrollment are to streamline enrollment packets and provide additional training for office staff to better answer patron enrollment questions.

New This Year
The enrollment process has had an exciting update in PowerSchool called e-Registration that allows easier completion for parents and cleaner data mining for staff.
The Transportation Department has gone electronic! For the first time this upcoming school year, parents can complete the transportation enrollment form online. This form can be accessed during online enrollment or on the district website, www.usd385.org, by selecting Transportation under Departments.
