REGISTRATION for the 2017/2018 School Year

It time to start thinking about registration for the 2017/2018 school year. At Cory Elementary, we do our registration online via the Online Verification System (OLV). We do not have a registration day. Please make sure your children’s Parent Portal is up to date. It is a good idea to sign in at least once a month. Please see below for more details.

BENEFIT:
The OLV system offers an alternative to printing, mailing, and manually updating the pre-populated forms for all students! Parents can complete OLV for all of their students in their Infinite Campus primary household in one place, through their Parent Portal account.

WHO COMPLETES OLV:
Parents of currently attending or pre-enrolled students (active in IC)
***Students new to DPS can pre-enroll (with Round 2 Pre-enrollment Form and required documents) through June, then request a Parent Portal account and use OLV
***Students new to DPS who are not pre-enrolled by June will need to complete the New Student Registration paper packet

Please remember that only a member of the family’s primary household in Infinite Campus can complete OLV. For example, if the student’s primary household is with the mother and the student’s secondary household is with the father, only the mother can complete OLV for this student.

OLV WINDOW:
OLV will be open from July 20th until August 22nd at 5 p.m.

OLV is not first come, first served and will not affect the student’s enrollment. It is simply used to verify that all information in Infinite Campus is up to date.

CALL TO ACTION:
If you have not done so already, please create your Parent Portal account by visiting myportal.dpsk12.org and click on “Getting Started”. You will need an email address and one of your student’s ID#s. There are no more wait times for an account; you can NOW create your own account!

If you have questions and need more support with Parent/Student Portal, please email dps_portalteam@dpsk12.org or call 720.423.3163.
