On July 17, 2017, online registration will open for families currently in the district for the 2017-18 school year. Families new to DMPS should contact the Welcome Center (see below) as soon as possible.
To help ensure that schools and students are well prepared for the first day of school, parents are encouraged to register their child or children online.
The online registration process will allow parents to submit information and upload relevant documents directly to the district, including immunization records, transcripts and address verification.
There are two ways to register online:
- Current DMPS families with parent portal accounts will have a link to register inside their parent portal account starting July 17, 2017. Click on the link to verify information, upload relevant documents and complete the mandatory annual online registration process. For a video tutorial about how to register, click here.
- Families new to the district must contact the DMPS Welcome Center by visiting 2100 Fleur Drive in Des Moines or calling 515-242-7371. Your information will be entered into the district’s system, and then your school(s) will give you access to Infinite Campus to complete online registration.
If you do not have a parent portal account through Infinite Campus, please contact your school office for information and assistance. (NOTE: current DMPS families should NOT contact the Welcome Center for issues relating to Infinite Campus, online registration, passwords, etc.; this office is NOT able to assist with those issues.)
