Can I register more than one student?
Yes. Parents can register multiple students in a household at one time.
Can I start my registration or verification now and finish it later?
Applications can be saved if more data is needed and reopened at a later time with your username and password.
Once my application is submitted can I go back and make changes?
No. In order to make changes to a submitted application, you will have to notify the school. The office staff can then make the changes for you.
How do I access the parent portal, ParentVUE, now that my child is enrolled at GIPS?
As a GIPS parent you can use the same username and password you used to access Online Registration to log into your ParentVUE account. You can view your child's calendars, attendance, schedules, grades, course history information.
Who can I contact if I have questions about the online registration process?
If you have any questions about the online registration process, please contact one of the schools that your child will attend.
What are the next steps after I submit my registration?
Your online registration will be reviewed by your enrolling school one child at a time. You will receive an email with the status of your child’s enrollment status along with next steps. If you are registering more than one student, there will be a delay between status updates on each child. There may be instances when the school will need additional information to accept your application and you will be notified accordingly.
Will my kindergartner be automatically enrolled at the same school my other children are enrolled at?
No, not necessarily. If your older children don't attend your neighborhood school, your kindergartner will be automatically enrolled in your neighborhood school. If you want them to attend the same school as your other children, you will need to fill out a special transfer form located on our website under Quick Links.
When will I find out if the special transfer form was accepted?
Special transfers are reviewed in July and you will be notified by the school principal of the acceptance/denial.
What do I do if we have moved outside of Grand Island city limits but still want to attend Grand Island Public Schools?
Contact Christine Kolar at the Kneale Administration Building to obtain option enrollment paperwork.
When will I find out if the option enrollment was accepted and which school my child will attend?
Option enrollments are reviewed in July and you will be notified by the school of the acceptance or denial.
If I currently live outside city limits and would like my child to attend Grand Island Public Schools, what do I do?
Contact Christine Kolar at the Kneale Administration Building to obtain option enrollment paperwork. Please note an option enrollment paper will need to be filled out for each individual child.
Do my children that already attend Grand Island Public Schools have to be registered every year?
Yes, all children will need to be registered each year for school.
If my address has changed inside city limits and I want my child to go to our new neighborhood school, what do I do?
Contact the school secretary to have the enrollment changed.
