Helpful tips to know before you begin the registration process:
All new students (other than preschool) entering Indianola Community School District must provide the proper documentation to establish residency within the Indianola School District as required by Iowa law. The documents provided must always state the student’s current physical address. A post office box is not an acceptable address for the purpose of determining residency. If you do not know whether your residence is within the Indianola Community School District, contact the Student Information Management Analyst at 515.961.9500 X1516 or go to the Warren County Assessor site. You must provide proof of residency in order to enroll your child. A copy of one of the following documents will suffice as long as it lists the custodial parents’ current address:
Printed Verification Page from Assessor’s Web Page
Mortgage or Current Property Tax Document
Lease Agreement with Term listed
Settlement Statement or Warranty Deed from Closing on New Home
Purchase Contract with Possession/Closing Date
Current Utility Bill or Utility Deposit Receipt
Required Registration Documents:
The following documents are legal requirements that you will need to submit during the registration process. It is the parent’s responsibility to provide all of these documents before you will be sent the link to enroll your child in school.
- Proof of Residency as described above (not required for Preschool)
- Proof of Birth
- Immunization records will suffice for proof of birth if they include the child’s date of birth.
The following are additional grade specific paperwork requirements:
- Preschool: Preschool physical (must be received by school before school starts)
- K: Vision Screening and Dental Screening (turned into school up to 6 months after school starts)
- 3rd Grade: Vision Screening (turned into school up to 6 months after school starts)
- 9th Grade: Dental Screening (turned into school up to 6 months after school starts)
You must submit all of the documents above before we can enroll your child(ren) in the Indianola Community School District. Upon receipt of all required documentation, a link will be e-mailed to you to complete the online registration process. (If you do not have access to a computer to do the online registration process, please contact the District Office to set up an appointment.)
Documents can be turned into the Indianola Central Office at 1301 E. 2nd Avenue from 8AM – 4PM M-TH and 8AM – 12PM Friday. Documents may also be faxed to 515-961-9505 or scanned and e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, all documents must be included within one e-mail or fax. Incomplete packages will not be accepted. Please utilize the Pre-Enrollment Cover Sheet linked below to ensure you have all documentation accounted for before enrolling.
If you are registering for the upcoming school year, you will have the ability to pay school fees for grades K-12 and/or complete a fee waiver and free/reduced lunch application. If you are registering for the upcoming school year, please mark your calendar for July 1st; the district cannot accept payments for next school year before July 1st. If you make a payment before July 1st, the district will refund your payment and you will need to pay again.
If you have a Returning Student, which includes students in Purple & Gold preschool, you may register him/her through the Returning Student Registration Link in PowerSchool.
