Skyward Family Access Online Student Registration

NEW for the 2016-2017 school year, Georgetown ISD will be utilizing ONLINE student registration in our Skyward Family Access portal. The new online process takes only about 5 minutes per student, and allows you to verify all of your student's data is correct without filling out paper forms at the start of the school year.

Who Needs to Complete Online Registration?
Online registration must be completed for each student in the district, whether new or returning.  The registration process allows you to verify that the information we have on file is accurate.  Only the parent/guardians in the student's primary family will have access to online registration.  The student's primary family is the one in which the student primarily resides and to whom the student's residency address was assigned.   Secondary families and parent/guardians in those families can still use Family Access but do not need to complete the online registration process.

Log Into Family Access

To begin the Online Student Registration process for the current school year, log into your Family Access account using the information you were sent in a back-to-school email.  If you did not receive this email, click here to view instructions for how to log into Family Access.

Student Registration Access

The Online Student Registration links will appear in two places - on the Family Access home page, and on the left menu.   If you have multiple students, you will see multiple links to access each student's registration process individually.
