If your child is curently attending one of our district schools, please make sure to complete the returning student registration, which is now online for students returning in 2020-2021. This process replaces the paper forms used in the past to update information of a student on a yearly basis. It also replaces the paper process for applying for the DiLoreto K-8 Lottery.
Please note that the deadline for applying to the DiLoreto Lottery was April 30, 2020 at 3 PM. The virtual DiLoreto Lottery will be held on May 29, 2020 at 6:00 pm. The returning students registration form can be accessed through your PowerSchool Parent Portal Webpage.
The "Returning Student Registration" icon will not appear when logged in using the student's PowerSchool account, so you must create and use a parent portal account for this.
From the PowerSchool Parent Portal Webpage (Click here for the Parent Portal)
> Along the top of the page, select the first student you are going to register/update information.
> Click on Returning Student Registration link on the navigation column to the left.
> For security verification, enter the student's date of birth in MM/DD/YYYY format.
> Please go through each section and verify all information is current. Make updates and corrections as needed (check spelling, email addresses, phone numbers, emergency contacts, etc.).
> Review all information for accuracy and complete any missing and/or required fields. Do not submit until all information has been reviewed. You will not be able to go back and change this information online once submitted.

Please contact your school to obtain the access ID and password for your child, if you do not have a parent account set up already. Each child has a unique access ID and password, so you will need each one if you have more than one child attending the New Britain Public Schools. Once you create Parent Account, you will be able to link all your students to your account.
All children will be enrolled in neighborhood schools based on the parent’s/guardian’s residential address. Neighborhood schools allow the Consolidated School District of New Britain to better direct and focus staff and resources to fit the needs of the students in every school. Our plan is to develop each school as the focus of its neighborhood, and to make a vibrant community center as well as a place of gathering for students and families.

Below are some frequently asked questions: If your question is not answered, please contact our Central Registration Office at 860-223-5501 or by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
Should I create an account?
If you've never completed an online Returning Student Registration, you should create an account. This allows you to securely save your work and come back at a later time if necessary. You can use your email address or cell phone number. If you already have an account, you can sign in and complete the form. (You should use the same account to complete forms for multiple children.)
I've completed the form, now what?
When 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 Consolidated School District of New Britain? 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 submit one Returning Student Registration and then start another – this will allow you to "snap over" shared family information, which will save you time.
I don't understand what a question is asking.
You can contact us at (860) 223-5501 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org ask any general questions about the form or the Returning Student Registration process.
