It's a GREAT day to be a Bulldog!
The registration process for EISD will be altered slightly this year from in the past due to the current situation.
Please read each step carefully to ensure that each student's registration is completed by the deadline.
Click here if you would like to print these directions.
A new student is defined as a student that was not enrolled at EISD at the end of the 2019-2020 school year. This will include all Pre-K and Kindergarten students that did NOT attend Pre-K at EISD last year. You are considered a new student even if you filled out paperwork during the Pre-K and Kindergarten round-up.
New students will not need to complete the following steps. Instead, please click here to be redirected to the New Student Registration page.
Letters with general registration information will be mailed to all returning students on Friday, July 24th. This letter contains each student's portal ID. This ID is needed if you have not setup a Parent Portal prior to this year. You may also use this ID to redo your account if you are having problems.
If you do not have a current Parent Portal, please wait until you receive this letter in the mail and then follow the directions in the letter to create your portal. Directions may also be found on the website under Parents & Students, Gradebook Portal, Ascender Parent Portal Documentation, but you must have the letter to have your Portal ID before you can setup your account.
If you have a current Parent Portal, please follow the information below to register your student.
If you have any problems setting up your account or logging in to your account, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
**PLEASE NOTE: THE REGISTRATION PROCESS CANNOT BE COMPLETED FROM A PHONE. PARENT PORTAL WORKS FROM A PHONE EXCEPT FOR THE REGISTRATION PORTION. YOU MUST USE A COMPUTER.**

JULY 31ST: 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM
ALL STUDENTS RETURNING TO KINDERGARTEN OR SEVENTH GRADE MUST ATTEND ONE STOP SHOP TO PROVIDE PROOF OF UPDATED SHOT RECORDS (no exceptions).
Students in the above mentioned grades must attend One Stop Shop on one of these dates to show proof they received the required immunizations. You will need to drive around to the back of Elementary via the entrance by the Fire Station (signs will be available). Nurse Harper and her assistants will make copies of the needed shot records. Shot records must be up to date for student to start school.
ALL students will have the option to drop off the copies of the four printed forms mentioned in Step 2 on these dates also. This drop off will be manned by staff behind the Administration building. IF you have not picked up or printed the four forms, you may have a staff member hand you a copy, complete the paperwork, and then someone will pick it up from your car.
What if I am a new student? This information does not relate to new students. New students will need to click here for the new student registration process.
My Parent Portal was working last year and now it is not? The Parent Portal will allow you to reset your password. If you cannot login, you need to reset your password. Edgewood ISD does not have the capabilities to reset parent passwords. If you cannot get your password to reset, you may want to create a new account. If this does not work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I do not have the same email address that I had last year? You may use the registration letter you receive in the mail and create a new Parent Portal with your active email address. You will need the Portal ID numbers off of the letter mailed to you to be able to complete this step. If this does not work, please email email@example.com.
I can get into my Parent Portal, but Registration does not show up? Registration will not be live until July 22nd. If it is past this date, then you may need to verify your email address. Please go into the Account portion of Parent Portal and click to verify your email. You will then need to login to your email account and follow the directions in the verification email. If this does not work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm trying to setup my Parent Portal and it is telling me that my email address is already in use? This happens when you have used that email before to setup a Parent Portal. If you cannot remember your password, then you need to click the option to reset the password. If you need a completely new account and want to use that email address you will need to email email@example.com so that we can delete the account tied to that email address.
Do I need to attend One Stop Shop? ALL students returning to Kindergarten or 7th grade will need to provide proof of their shot records. This may only be done through attending One Stop Shop. It will go faster if you have a copy of your shot record to hand the nurse. However, we will have the ability to copy your information, but you will need to wait in your car until the copy is made.
I cannot print forms from home? There will be paper copies behind the Administration Office at the Drop Box location. You may pick up a packet, return to your car to complete the information or take it with you and then return the forms to the drop box OR you may return the forms during One Stop Shop. There will be forms available during the One Stop Shop times mentioned above. Follow the signs and pull behind the Administration building. Staff will hand you a packet in your car. You can park, complete the packet and then hold it up and staff will pick it up from you.
How important is the contact information? Correct contact information is crucial. EISD MUST have at least two and would prefer three contacts that may pick up your child in case of an illness or school closure. If you do not list at least two emergency contacts, you will be notified by staff prior to the first day of school and asked to add contacts. You may add more than three if you choose.
What happens if I do not have the information completed by the deadline? EISD staff will begin calling students that have not completed their registration after the assigned deadline. Students will not be allowed to attend classes until the registration process is complete.
My questions aren't listed in this FAQ, can you help me? For all other questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will assist you as quickly as possible.
