Registration FAQ

CAN PARENTS REGISTER FROM HOME?

Yes, you can register anywhere with an internet connection.

Is on-line registration a required annual process for parents?

Yes. The district will require new and returning student families to complete this process on an annual basis. Returning student families will only be asked to verify existing information on forms pre-populated with the student information already housed in PowerSchool.

WHAT INFORMATION SHOULD I HAVE ON HAND TO COMPLETE ONLINE REGISTRATION?

Parents should have all the following information at hand before beginning to fill out the information to avoid having to go to the school if a mistake is made. • Residency documents; • Student-specific information you may need to enter, such as unique medical information; • Any required registration documents that need to be scanned/uploaded/ verified at the school (immunization record, proof of age, etc.)

WHAT DO I NEED TO COMPLETE, AND WHERE CAN I COMPLETE THE ONLINE REGISTRATION PROCESS?

  • You will need any one of the following: desktop-computer, laptop computer, tablet, or smartphone with Internet capabilities. 
  • You need a reliable Internet connection.
  • You will need an electronic copy of your Proof of Residency information. If you do not have an electronic copy, you can use a scanner or a scanner app on your tablet or smartphone to get the paper copy into an electronic format. 
  • Household information - address and phone numbers
  • Parent information - work and cell phone numbers, email addresses
  • Student information - demographics and health/medication information
  • Emergency contact - phone numbers

What if I have a payment question?

Contact your individual school if you have any questions about the mandatory items or additional items for payment. 

Do I have to upload Proof of Residency for each child?

Yes, the process to approve records is done on an individual student basis. Therefore, we need to see the residency file for each child. Example, if you have an elementary and middle school child you will upload the proof of residency document 2 times. Click here for a how to video on how to upload documents.

IF I LIVE IN THE CITY OF LEE’S SUMMIT, IS MY RESIDENCE AUTOMATICALLY INCLUDED WITHIN THE LSR7 SCHOOL DISTRICT’S BOUNDARIES?

Not necessarily. If you have questions or if you’d like to know which school your child will attend, please click here.

WHAT ARE THE RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS? WHO MANDATES THESE REQUIREMENTS?

Board of Education policy and state law require that all students attending the LSR7 School District be permanently domiciled and living within the boundaries of the school district. Students must live with their parent(s) or legal guardian(s).

If none of my child’s information changed, do I still need to do the online registration process?

Yes. In addition to the Health Information needed, there are several agreement questions that must be answered each year for your child’s health and safety, technology access, and participation in instructional programs.

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO PROVIDE PROOF OF RESIDENCY? WHEN IS THE DEADLINE?

All parents or guardians of elementary and early childhood students are required to provide proof of residency during enrollment/registration, scheduled during late July/early August. Residency verification is required during these enrollment/registration sessions before students will be assigned to a classroom for the school year. Providing residency verification late July/early August will help LSR7 staff prepare for school and will streamline the elementary Meet Your Teacher Night, scheduled a few days before the first day of school.

All secondary students’ parents or guardians are required to provide proof of LSR7 School District residency during middle school and high school enrollments, scheduled for late July/early August.

HOW CAN I PROVIDE PROOF OF RESIDENCY IF I’M UNABLE TO USE A UTILITY BILL?

  • An existing rental/lease agreement will be accepted as proof of residency only if all utilities are included in the rental/lease agreement (such that the parent/guardian is unable to produce a utility bill).  The rental/lease agreement must include the following: 

  • Date of agreement.
  • Name of Lessee and Lessor.
  • Address of Lessee and Lessor.
  • Phone number of Lessee and Lessor.
  • Signature of Lessee and Lessor.
  • Document states that all utilities are included.

  • A new lease closing document reflecting that the parent/guardian has taken possession of property located within the LSR-7 district within the past 30 days.  The rental/lease agreement must include the following:

  • Date of agreement.
  • Name of Lessee and Lessor.
  • Address of Lessee and Lessor.
  • Phone number of Lessee and Lessor.
  • Signature of Lessee and Lessor.
  • Document states that all utilities are included.

  • If both the student AND parent(s)/guardian(s) are living with a district resident, notarized district forms (R1 and R2) are required with the resident’s proof of residency. These standard forms are available at each school’s office and original notarized forms must be returned to the school.

AS A COURT-APPOINTED GUARDIAN, WHAT DOCUMENTATION DO I NEED TO PROVIDE DURING REGISTRATION?

Any student wishing to enroll who is domiciled with a guardian residing in the school district will submit a legal document showing court appointed guardianship. Exceptions will be made in adherence to federal/state regulations.

WHAT IS THE LSR7 SCHOOL DISTRICT’S PROCEDURE FOR SHARING STUDENT INFORMATION AND PARENTAL DECISIONS IN REGARDS TO CUSTODY?

The custody of a child is presumed to be held by the child’s parents unless a court order states otherwise. Even in divorce situations, it is presumed that both parents will have joint legal custody of the child. That is, they will share equally in all important decisions such as medical and educational. If one parent informs the school district that the other parent has been denied custody or visitation, that parent must provide a copy of the court document as proof.

What if some of the pre-populated information was wrong when I logged in to PowerSchool Registration?

Correct whatever information is allowed to be changed. Note that some information cannot be changed online using PowerSchool Registration and will need to be changed in person at the school.

WHAT IF A FAMILY INDICATES THEY DO NOT HAVE THE MEANS TO COMPLETE ONLINE REGISTRATION?

For new student enrollment throughout the year, each school office will provide a device to assist families. Families can also access public computers at all Mid-Continent Public Library locations. Elementary buildings will be open to new families who need assistance beginning July 29 from 8 a.m to 12 p.m.  The secondary building offices are open year round for families who need assistance with completing the online registration.

Can parents access the online enrollment from their smartphone or tablet?

Yes. You can access the online enrollment system from Android and iOS devices if you are not using the PowerSchool mobile app. Please use this link - https://powerschool.lsr7.org\public.

CAN PARENTS START MY ENROLLMENT NOW AND FINISH IT LATER?

Yes. As long as the application is not submitted via a Submit button as the final step, applications can be saved if more data entry is needed and reopened at a later time. You will re-enter via the account you set up when you began the enrollment / registration process.

ONCE AN APPLICATION IS SUBMITTED CAN A PARENT / GUARDIAN GO BACK AND MAKE CHANGES?

No, the system does not allow changes to a submitted enrollment/registration form. A parent would need to contact their child’s school if a change needs to be made.

DO I HAVE TO ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS IN THE ONLINE REGISTRATION APPLICATION?

Questions marked with a red asterisk (*) require a response, and the process is not complete until those questions are answered.

HOW WILL PARENTS KNOW THEIR REGISTRATION WAS RECEIVED?

Once the online registration process is completed, parents will receive a confirmation of submission screen and an email.

DO I NEED MORE THAN ONE POWERSCHOOL REGISTRATION ACCOUNT IF I HAVE MORE THAN ONE CHILD?

No. If you are registering more than one child, you can utilize the same account, but you will have to enter each child’s unique snapcode. If the additional child is new to the District, he/she WILL NOT have a snapcode and must be registered as a new student. Each child will have to be registered through the online process. After completing registration for one child, a parent can simply click a link to begin registration for a second child.

I HAVE COMPLETED THE ONLINE REGISTRATION PROCESS. WHAT IS NEXT?

Once all information has been entered for the student with an electronic signature, click “Submit.” A preview page will appear to review information entered for each page letting the parent know if any required fields are missing. Upon final confirmation of submission, the parent/guardian should proceed to the final step of making payment.

WHO DO PARENTS CALL IF THEY EXPERIENCE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES?

If you are having issues with the infosnap program, such as if you have forgotten the unique username and password you created for online registration or if the username and/or password is not working, you must contact PowerSchool Registration for assistance: 866-752-6850 (8 a.m. – 5 p.m.).

WHAT IF I MADE A MISTAKE?

If you would like to make a change – prior to submitting the form – you can either navigate back to the page using the Previous button. Or, if you are on the Review page, click on the underlined field. If you have already submitted the form, then you will need to contact your student’s school, so staff members can make the changes for you.

WHAT IF I AM NOT SURE HOW TO ANSWER A QUESTION?

If you don’t know what the question is asking, don’t hesitate to call your school if you have a question about a specific item.
