Student Registration

9 days ago

This year we are again utilizing PowerSchool Registration (formerly known as InfoSnap), an online student registration system designed to streamline the new-school-year enrollment process for our families.  Please read the descriptions that follow and select the appropriate link.

NEW RESIDENT STUDENT REGISTRATION:

Please note that before you complete the online registration process, you must first call or visit the school to let them know of your intent to enroll and provide them with:

a) Two documents to verify proof of residency.  Documented proof of residency may be a valid driver's license,  lease agreement, utility bill, mortgage statement, etc. 

b) Child's birth certificate and/or custody paperwork

c) Immunization records

d) Recent physical

e) Contact information from your child's previous school if possible. 

Once these steps have been completed, you may click the following link to register your student:

RETURNING STUDENT REGISTRATION:

In early August of each year, families of currently enrolled students in West Point Public Schools will receive an email with instructions on registering their student(s) for the upcoming school year.  The benefit of using the returning student registration form is that many of the fields are already pre-populated from our student database, so it will save you a few minutes of entry time.  If you did not receive your returning student registration email, you may either contact the school to get one sent to you or use the link below (no fields will be pre-populated for you, so it will take a few minutes longer to complete the registration process).

Please select the appropriate link to continue:

Interested in Your Child Attending WPPS?
Are you interested in your child attending West Point Public Schools as a tuition student? The following steps have been developed to secure your child's seat.

1. Complete an application and release of information. The application and records release form can be found under the Parent Quick Links on this page. The application and records release should be completed by a parent/guardian and returned to our School Board Office located at 1626 Main Street, West Point, VA 23181.
2. The release of information must include the current school and the last school that the student attended. If you are applying for a first time kindergartner, please indicate that on the release form.
3. West Point Public Schools will then request records from current and/or previous attending schools.
4. Upon receipt of the student’s records the Director of Student Services, School Principal and Superintendent will review them for grades, behavior, etc.
5. A recommendation will then be made to the school board to either accept or deny the application. This will happen at the monthly school board meeting.
6. After the school board meeting, parents will be notified in writing by mail as to the school board’s determination.
7. If your student has been approved for placement, along with the approval letter will be a contract for signature and a copy of the schedule of tuition payments.

West Point School Board has set the tuition for the 2017-2018 school year at $2,900.00 and is payable quarterly, August, October, January, and March.

How Parents Can Support Students

Be Present: Attend open-house, back-to-school night and parent-teacher conferences.  Mark these important dates on your calendar.  They are great opportunities to interact with your child's teacher(s) and learn more about their classroom and school. 

Focus on Learning: Encourage your child to give their best effort, but emphasize the value of learning over making perfect grades.  If your child is struggling in a specific area, ask the teacher to suggest ways you can help at home. 

Stay in Touch: Use all the digital tools available to stay in touch with your child's teacher.  PowerSchool, Google Calendar, email and teacher websites are great tools to stay up to date on your child's progress.
