FAQs-New Students

  • FAQs-New Students
    We are excited to announce an online enrollment system for new student registration.  A new student to Katy ISD is a student who has never attended a district school or was not enrolled in Katy ISD at the end of the previous school year.

    How do I get started?
    Visit the KISD online registration page and click the New Student Registration link. Select “Create Account” on the left.

    You will need to create a unique login and password for your account.
    This allows you to securely save your work and come back at a later time i​f necessary. You can use your email address or cell phone number. Please remember this login and password as Katy ISD utilizes PowerSchool Registration​ each year to update information on students returning to our schools.

    Do I have to answer all the questions?
    Questions marked with a red asterisk (*) are required.

    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” and you will receive an email that your submission documents will be reviewed. All the information you’ve entered will be sent electronically to the school. If you cannot click on the Submit button, you will need to make sure that you have answered all REQUIRED questions. 

    A representative will contact you should additional information be needed. For secondary students (6th – 12th grades), a school counselor will reach out to you to discuss course selection for the upcoming school year once grade reports/transcripts have been received and they can be reviewed. 

    What if I have more than one student in the district? Do I need to do this for each child?
    Yes, because you’ll need to provide information that is specific for each child. We recommend that you complete and submit one form and then start another – this will allow you to “snap” (or share) selected family information, which saves you time.

    I’m not sure how to answer a question. I don’t know what the question is asking.
    Send an email to centralregistration@katyisd.org for questions.

    Help! I’m having technical difficulties.
    If you experience technical issues with your PowerSchool account, you may contact the PowerSchool Registration support line at 866-434-6276 or visiting the PowerSchool Help Desk for further assistance.

    Retrieving a password can be done either online or by contacting the PowerSchool Registration Support Team directly.

    1. To retrieve a password online, the family can select the 'Forgot password?' link on the Account Sign In screen. From there, they must enter the account's associated Email Address. They will then be able to either recover a temporary password sent to their account's email address, or they can choose to answer their security questions online and immediately enter a new password.

    2. If necessary, the PowerSchool Registration Support Team will be able to send a temporary password to the account's email address, or, after answering the security questions, will be able to change the password on the account. For security and privacy reasons, the PowerSchool Registration Support Team does not have access to current passwords.
