Returning Students for the 2022-2023 School Year

Students who are currently enrolled at WBSD7 and who will be returning for the 2022-2023 School Year will need to have their returning student registration completed before the school year begins. All parents were emailed the following instructions on 4/19/2022.

Getting Started—Returning Students
Since Williston Basin School District #7 already has the required documentation for students currently enrolled in our district, the re-enrollment process is simple. 

You will be using the PowerSchool Parent Portal to access the enrollment system to fill out the form and verify that your student’s information is current. This form will allow you to update emergency contacts, provide medical history changes if appropriate and permission slips. You will be given the chance to review updated school policies. 

Returning Registration can only be completed through the PowerSchool Parent Portal via an internet browser.  You cannot use the PowerSchool App to access the registration link. If you need assistance with this, please contact enrollment@willistonschools.org or 701-572-1580.

 

How do I get started?
Visit https://wbsd7.ps.state.nd.us/public/home.html and sign in to your PowerSchool Parent Portal. Or go to the www.willistonschools.org district homepage and click Menu > scroll down to Parents > and click on PowerSchool. Of the 4 options to select at the top of the page, click the first button, PowerSchool Parent Portal. 

Within the Parent Portal:

  1. Select the student you wish to register along the top tab

  2. Select the 22-23 Enrollment link at the bottom left of the navigation bar

  3. Agree to the terms and conditions

  4. Complete all screens of registration 

  5. Once finished, if you have other children, within PowerSchool Parent Portal choose the tab for the next child and repeat steps 2 and 3. Continue this process until you have finished the enrollment for each of your children.

Enrollment Frequently Asked Questions:

 

I can’t remember my login for the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
If you can’t remember your login, use the “Forgot Username or Password?" link on the Sign In page.

  • If you do not know your username click the Forgot Username tab. You will need to use the email address that the account was created with in order to receive your login credentials.

  • To have the password reset, use the Forgot Password tab and provide your username and email address. An email will be sent to your email address with a link to reset your password. The link is only valid for 30 minutes.

If you need further assistance recovering your login, please contact the district office or your child's school directly.

What if I haven't set up a Parent Portal Login Account?
Please contact the district office or your child’s school directly to get directions emailed to you with your Parent Access ID and Password. Be sure to mention if you have more than one child in the district.

I’m trying to add a student to the Parent Portal, but I don’t have an Access ID.
Please contact the district office or your child’s school directly to obtain the Access ID and Password to add a student to your parent account.


Do I have to answer all the questions?
Required fields and questions are marked with a box that says "required". All other questions are optional.

What if I make a mistake?
If you would like to make a change, prior to submitting the form, you can either navigate back to the page using the “< Prev” and “Next >” buttons. Or if you are on the Review page, click on the underlined field. If you have already submitted the form, then you will need to contact your student’s school, so they can make the changes for you.

I’ve completed the form, now what?
Once you have finished entering your information, click “Submit.” This will send all of the information you’ve entered to the school. If you cannot click on this button, you will need to make sure that you have answered all REQUIRED questions.

What if I have more than one student in the district? Do I need to fill out a form for each child?
Yes. You will need to provide information that is specific for each child. We recommend that you complete and submit one form and then return to the parent portal to start the next child’s form – doing this will allow you to “snap” (or share) selected family information between children which saves you time.

Help! I’m on the Registration form and I’m having technical difficulties.

If you have any questions about the registration process, please contact us at 701-572-1580 or email enrollment@willistonschools.org.

In-District Student Transfer Process

There will be limited opportunities for students to transfer from their current school to another K-8 school within the district for the 2022-2023 School Year. If parents would like to put in for a transfer request, they will need to fill out the In-District Transfer Request Form and turn it into the WBSD7 District Office by April 22, 2022. Transfer requests received after this date will not be accepted. Transfers will be reviewed and parents will be notified the first week of June 2022 if the request was approved or denied. At this time, transfer requests will only be considered if the school requested is closer to the student’s residence. *Except if the request is for a rural school, see below. If the address is not the current address on file, updated proof of residence will be requested.

Please note that transfer requests are not guaranteed, as schools have a limited number of seats available.

Transfer requests for the ASB Innovation Academy (Grades 6-8) are not accepted, as entrance to this school is only available through a lottery process. If you are interested in entering your child into this lottery, please make sure you check the lottery box in the registration form when you re-register your child. (If your child is a current student at ASB Innovation Academy, this is not required.)

*Because of some available space at our rural schools (Missouri Ridge, Garden Valley & Round Prairie) bussing could be provided. If you would like to transfer your child to a rural school please check the bus transportation box in the inter-district transfer form.

For questions, please contact Maria Barnett at 701-572-1580 or send an email to enrollment@willistonschools.org.

These forms will be available in person at the WBSD7 District office, and online here.   Forms can be returned in person at the WBSD7 District office, 1201 9th Ave NW, Williston, ND 58801 or emailed to enrollment@willistonschools.org.

Enrollment FAQs:

Q: Can I choose what school my student will go to?

A: WBSD7 is currently working towards neighborhood schools. For grades K-8, students will be placed in the school that is closest to their home, as long as there is room in that school for that student. Students in grades 9-12 will attend Williston High School.

Q: How soon will my new student be attending classes once they are registered?

A: For grades K-8, it may take up to 48 hours before your student will begin classes once all registration steps have been completed. For grades 9-12, it may take up to 1 week (or longer) after all registration steps have been completed before your student will begin classes. To help expedite this process, please provide a copy of your student's unofficial transcript to enrollment@willistonschools.org.

Q: My student turned 5 after August 1, 2021. Can I enroll them into Kindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year?

A: No, per North Dakota Century Code 15.1-06-01, the student must be 5 years old by August 1 of that school year, unless they have been attending Kindergarten in another state.
