New Student Registration

Parents or court-appointed guardians living in the West Perry School District may register a student. Exceptions apply to homeless youth (according to the McKinney-Vento Act), migrant and foster students. A student living with someone other than a parent will be registered in accordance with guidelines set by PA Public School Code section 24 P.S. 13-1302. Residents, other than the parent or court-appointed guardian, will be asked to sign an affidavit stating that they and the student live in this District on a full-time basis.

If you are registering a child with West Perry School District and you are residing with a District property owner, an Affidavit of Multiple Occupancy should be completed by the owner or lessee of the property. The parent/guardian of the child should complete an Application for Multiple Occupancy. If this situation applies to you, please reach out to get these forms.

Children registering for Kindergarten must turn five (5) years old BEFORE September 1st.
Children registering for 1st grade must turn six (6) years old BEFORE September 1st.

To register a child, you must complete the online enrollment form and contact the District Office. 
The online enrollment form is completed using PowerSchool Enrollment. If this is your first time using PowerSchool Enrollment, you will need to create an account. If you have used this system before, please log in using your existing account information.

If you do not have internet access or a computer, please contact the District Office to reserve a time to complete this process. Please have the required documents with you for this appointment.

An online enrollment form must be completed for each child. After the first child is added, you can click the link to 'Add' an additional child.

To expedite the enrollment process, you should upload the required documents (see below) while completing the online registration. If necessary, these documents can also be emailed or dropped off at the District Office.

If you are unable to complete the online registration all at once, you can save your work and log back in later to continue where you stopped.
