The General Process Flow (New Families)

The School Choice Window for the 2020/2021 School Year is Closed as of February 28, 2020, 4:00 PM. 
 
The information below may be helpful as you plan for the 2021/2022 School Year. 
 
The process described below is for families registering their first GUHSD high school student. If you have a returning student or otherwise already have an Infinite Campus Parent Portal account with GUHSD, please use the Infinite Campus Parent Portal* to register your student. For more information, see the Registration page. 
 
There are four main steps to registering your student with the district, plus an additional three steps if you want to participate in School Choice - seven steps in all. 
 
Note: You may have received a packet of supplemental registration paperwork for one of our high schools from your student's elementary or middle school. This paperwork is a supplement for the individual school. It does not replace the required, online registration. 
 
 Seven steps to registering your student are below 
 
Each of these steps is described below, along with dates from the previous School Choice window dates.  Please note, you must temporarily allow (unblock) pop-ups

Step 1: Complete Online Registration 

All students must be registered in the district before they can attend.You must complete the form online, but several of our schools have Chromebook kiosks you can visit if you don't have access to a computer.
 
Your student will be assigned a school based on your family's address. If you want a different school, complete the registration before the deadline so that you can participate in School Choice. 
 
Important: If you have older students, you may already have an Infinite Campus Parent Portal account. If so, use your existing portal account to begin the registration process. Otherwise, view the Student Registration Help page before beginning the online registration.

A day or two after you receive the Registration Processed email, parents who do not yet have an Infinite Campus account will receive an email invitation to create a portal account. If you are planning on participating in School Choice, you will need an Infinite Campus Parent Portal account. If you do not receive the email, contact us at 619-956-4357.
 
If you have previously had a student in our district, you may not receive an email because you may already have an Infinite Campus Parent Portal account. If you don't know how to access your account, contact 619-956-4357.

 Step 4: Create your Infinite Campus account.

Click the link in the portal invitation email to create an Infinite Campus Parent Portal account. This is a one-use link, and it generally works better on home computers than on work ones. Set up a username and a password that you can remember. Even if you do not participate in School Choice, you will need the Infinite Campus Parent Portal to monitor you student's grades, behavior, and more.
