New Students to the District please follow the directions below. The first step of the process is to create an account. Please use an email address that you check often. This account can be used to register and update information for all of your children attending Birmingham Public Schools.
PowerSchool Registration will save a draft of your entries, so you can return to an enrollment to complete it at any time. (Wait and DO NOT PRESS SUBMIT until you are completely done, as you will not be able to return to make any changes or upload any documents once you press SUBMIT). Once you hit “review and submit” the data will be sent to the school for review (InfoSnap has a technical hotline should you have any issues 1-866-752-6850).
New student enrollment is for all students new to the district, even if they have a sibling already enrolled. NEW student enrollment does NOT apply to students already enrolled, who are moving or changing to a new school building within the district. If you received a snapcode letter from the district do NOT complete the New Student Registration forms as you are already enrolled.
