Online Registration FAQ

Returning Students:

In order to register your child for the 2020-2021 school year you must have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account. A unique user name and login was sent home with all current MHCBE students on January 20.

Once you create and login to your PowerSchool account, you will find the link to our online registration in the bottom left corner of the screen called "SchoolEngage". Parents/Guardians are encouraged to create PowerSchool Parent Portal accounts prior to February 3 to help simplify the registration process.

If needed, please refer to the instructions provided on the Returning Student Online Registration Guide.

New to our School Division: 

To register a new student online, please create an account in SchoolEngage. After you have created your account, you will be able to select the form labeled 2020-2021 New Student Registration K-12.

If needed, please refer to the instructions provided on the New Student Online Registration Guide.

Note: Please have a clear digital (photo or scanned) copy of your child's Birth Certificate or Proof of Citizenship documentation for registration. Registrations cannot be fully accepted until the proper documentation is provided.
