Thanks for Being a Part of Des Moines Public Schools


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.

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 already have students who attend DMPS, but you do not have a parent portal account through Infinite Campus or do not have internet access at home, help is currently available at the DMPS Family Call Center (515-242-8221) or at your school starting July 20.
