On July 13, 2020, online registration will open for the 2020-21 school year for families currently in the district.  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:

  1. Current DMPS families with parent portal accounts will have a link to register inside their parent portal account starting July 13, 2019. Click on the link to verify information, upload relevant documents and complete the mandatory annual online registration process. For help navigating online registration, click here.
  2. Families new to the district must contact the DMPS Welcome Center by visiting 1000 Porter Avenue in Des Moines or calling 515-242-7371 to enroll first, and then the student’s home school will assist with 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.)
