How do I register my student?

Please be sure you have an AISD Portal account. Visit portal.austinisd.org to create one or log in. Updating your contact information and parent permissions within the AISD Parent Portal -AISD STUDENT REGISTRATION tile is required EVERY year. By doing so, you will allow AISD to have the most current contact information for your family. You may view the flyer here.   2023-2024 Online Registration Flyer for new and returning students

What if I have a new address?

All returning students who have had a recent change of address must submit proof of residency to their campus for the 2023–24 school year. Please contact your child’s campus for more details.
