Deadline Extended: Back-to-School Made Easier With Online Forms

Updated Sept. 5, 2019; Published August 30, 2019

Deadline Extended: New "Back-to-School Parent/Guardian Portal" Open for Completion of Most Annual Forms and Access to Important Information

Online Forms Replace Annual Paper Packet of Forms Historically Brought Home by Students or Mailed; Parents/Guardians Are Asked to Submit Their Forms and Information by the End of the Day on Fri., Sept. 13 (Previously Sept. 6)

We are excited to welcome our parents/guardians and students to the 2019-20 school year! Back-to-school is always a busy time. This year, Radnor Township School District is hoping to make things a bit easier with a new "green" process that allows parents/guardians to complete most back-to-school forms online instead of through a paper packet that would typically arrive home the first day of school.

This new, web-based "Back-to-School Parent/Guardian Portal," provided by the education software company PowerSchool, is a secure system where parents/guardians can verify all student demographic, emergency, and medical information as well as provide updated contact information and review and confirm receipt of other important informational materials.  

By the end of the day on Friday, August 30, each parent/guardian with a student enrolled in an RTSD school should receive an email at their primary district email address from the district's Central Registrar, Amelia Dougherty. The email will contain a "snapcode" and instructions on how to use it to access the back-to-school portal. Should you need assistance, please see the contact information provided by PowerSchool at the bottom of this message. If you continue to have difficulties after working with PowerSchool, please email backtoschool@rtsd.org and a district representative will get back to you as soon as possible.



Due to the significance of the information collected, we ask families to please submit the required information as soon as possible but no later than the extended deadline of Friday, September 13. PLEASE NOTE, YOU WILL NEED A "SNAPCODE" TO ACCESS THE PORTAL. THE CODE WILL BE SENT TO YOUR PRIMARY EMAIL ADDRESS ON FILE WITH THE DISTRICT BY THE DISTRICT'S CENTRAL REGISTRAR, AMELIA DOUGHERTY.



 
Once a parent/guardian submits the required information via the PowerSchool Back-to-School Portal, the portal will not be accessible for the remainder of the school year. The portal is solely for completing back-to-school forms and making annual updates. Parents will continue to use Home Access Center to manage their contact information should changes need to be made mid-year as well as to access report cards.
 
Thank you for your time, attention and understanding as we launch this new initiative and in accessing the portal to complete this very important task. We hope this new procedure is a positive experience and we appreciate your patience as we become more environmentally friendly and move further into the 21st-century!
