Enrollment & Fees


Information is now available about 2022-23 student registration. The process will be done entirely online via PowerSchool. Please visit these links for instructions:


Enrollment Overview


All District 401 students, whether new or returning, must enroll in the District each school year. The enrollment process is also known as "registration." This process involves:

  • Proof of residency
  • Payment of school fees
  • Submission of consent forms

As mentioned above, registering for 2022-23 will be done entirely online. All necessary forms will be found in PowerSchool. All school fees will be paid online as well, using the MySchoolBucks payment system.


Definitions of "New Student" & "Returning Student"


A student is a "new student" if he or she did not attend a District 401 school the previous school year. For the purposes of 2022-23 enrollment, this means a student is considered "new" if he or she was not enrolled as a District 401 student during 2021-22.

A student is a "returning student" if he or she did attend a District 401 school during the previous school year. For the purposes of 2022-23 enrollment, a student is considered "returning" if he or she was enrolled as a District 401 student during 2021-22.


If You Are Homeless


Any homeless child shall be immediately admitted to District 401, even if the child or child's parent/guardian is unable to produce records normally required to establish residency.

District 401's liaison for homeless children is Dr. Kari Smith, Assistant Superintendent for Student Services. She can be reached at smithk@epcusd401.org.
