DMPS To Offer Online Registration in July


Beginning July 1, DMPS will offer online student registration for both new and returning families.

Beginning July 1, 2015, DMPS will offer online registration for new families and families currently within the district.

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 for their convenience.

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.

The move will also streamline the district’s records keeping process.

“Online registration will lift the burden from our school offices of filing and maintaining a large number of paper records,” said Superintendent Tom Ahart. “The online records will also be more secure, accessible only by a student’s family and key people within the district, making it even easier for staff to uphold student privacy rights outlined in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).”

There are two ways to register online:

  1. Families new to the district must contact the DMPS Welcome Center by calling 515-242-7371, or visiting 1301 2nd Avenue in Des Moines.
  2. Current DMPS families with parent portal accounts will receive a personalized link through Infinite Campus. Follow the link to verify information and upload relevant documents.

If you do not have a parent portal account through Infinite Campus, or you do not have internet access at home, please contact your school office for information and assistance.

Thank you to our technology department for their work on this project.
