Registration

Registration is online this year. School book fees are automatically discounted for everyone who registers between August 1 and August 10. 

The administration will be holding a parent meeting on Tuesday, August 4 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. to answer the questions we have received about our return to learn plan and to better help parents understand the two options being offered. Just tune in to the North Tama YouTube Channel at 6:30 p.m. to join the conversation. In addition to the questions already submitted, parents will have an opportunity to ask follow-up questions during the one-hour virtual meeting. 

Do you need to fill out a free/reduced lunch application?

For the 2020-2021 school year, we have upgraded to a new registration system. You will need to access your PowerSchool Parent Portal account in order to access the registration forms for your student(s). 

If you do not remember your Parent Portal account login information, you can use the forgot password link on the login screen. If you have trouble with that, you are also welcome to email Suzanne for help.

Complete instructions can be found below. We've also recorded a short video that will show you a test parent account and a walkthrough of the forms.

You will need to use a computer or tablet to access the registration forms, as they are not compatible with smartphones.

If you are ready to jump in to online registration, you can go to the North Tama PowerSchool Parent Portal
