Reed-Custer School District 255 online registration for the 2023-24 school year will begin February 1st.  Online registration will be accessible through PowerSchool. Parents that register online by March 31st are eligible for a discount.

You can log into your existing PowerSchool account to register your child.  YOU DO NOT NEED A NEW USERNAME OR PASSWORD IF YOU ARE CURRENTLY LOGGING INTO POWERSCHOOL.  If you do not have an account in PowerSchool to register your child, please contact your child’s school building’s secretary. When you log in, you must click POWERSCHOOL REGISTRATION, not Class Registration.  Follow the registration instructions located in PowerSchool.  

During the registration process, you must register every child in your household that is a Reed-Custer student.  You will have two internet options for fee payment. You can pay by credit card or electronic check through Revtrak. You can also call the Administration Center (815-458-2307) and create a payment plan.

Preferred web browsers for online registration are Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer 11 or Safari.  You can use the Internet on most smartphones to register.  The PowerSchool app (available for iOS or Android) will not allow access to online registration.  Computers are also available at Fossil Ridge Library.

If you have any questions or require assistance, please contact your student’s building secretary or the RC Technology Team.
