Student Registration for 17-18

Parents of Current 6th and 7th Graders-

STEAM Academy is moving to online registration through Parent Portal.  This process is called Data Confirmation .  In order to register your child for next school year, you MUST have a Parent Portal account.  If you have not yet signed up for an account, please do so ASAP.  

To sign up for your account, you need the following:
  • An email address
  • Verification Code
  • Your child's student identification number
  • The main contact phone number that was submitted to the school.

If you have all of this information (letters with this information have been sent on multiple occasions), click on this Parent Portal link and follow the instructions for creating your new account.

If you do not have the above listed information, click on this Parent Portal Request Form link to request the necessary information from our school.

If you are still unsure how to create your account and/or you have questions about Data Confirmation, please attend an informational meeting on Thursday, 4/27 at 5:30pm in the Library.

*The video to the left gives step by step instructions on signing up for a Parent Portal Account.  It was created by ERHS teachers so some things don't apply.
