Parents can enroll returning students online, when and where it is most convenient for them and in just a few minutes. Parents will have the ability to enter the student’s enrollment information from anywhere they have access to the internet.

To access the online enrollment system, parents will need to log into their PowerSchool account through the PowerSchool Parent Portal (PPP). The Parent Portal grants parents access to their students’ class schedules, attendance records, health records, and grades. Additionally, PPP enables parents to verify household information, including their email address, home address and telephone numbers.


Parents and Students who live out of district who are wanting to attend Atchison County Community Schools will need to complete an application before enrollment will be allowed.  

The online enrollment system will go live on Monday, July 29th, 2024.

Powerschool will not be accessible for Parents and Students in order to prepare for enrollment.

It will be reactivated for online enrollment.

Age Requirements
The requirement for a child's first enrollment in a Kansas school is governed by state law and the school district cannot exercise any deviations from the law. In essence the law provides:

  • A child must be 5 years of age on or before August 31 of the current year to enter kindergarten.
  • A child must be 6 years of age on or before August 31 of the current year to enter the first grade.

Entrance Requirements
All students entering Kansas schools must follow Kansas laws for immunizations and inoculations (PDF).

Enrollment Eligibility Requirements
Whenever a child is enrolled in a Kansas district school for the first time, the parent/guardian is required to provide proof of the child's identity. "Proof of Identity" is defined differently for different grade levels.

A child enrolling in preschool, kindergarten or first grade:

  • A certified copy of the birth certificate of the child, or
  • As an alternative for the child in the custody of the Secretary of Social and Rehabilitation Services, a certified copy of the court order placing the child in the custody of the secretary.
  • In the absence of a certified copy of birth certificate for the child in kindergarten or first grade, any document which reasonably tends to establish the age of the child will be accepted as temporary proof of identity.

A student enrolling in Grades 1-12:

  • A certified copy of birth certificate of child, or
  • A certified transcript of school records, or
  • Actual school records from sending school, or
  • A hospital birth certificate.

NOTE: If proof of identity is not presented to the school district within 30 days after enrollment, written notice will be given immediately to a law enforcement agency. Upon receipt of the written notice, the law enforcement agency shall conduct an investigation to determine the identity of the child.

American Rescue Plan Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services, by federal law, requires that every school district receiving federal relief funds develop and post on the school district website a  plan the reopening of school.  This reopening plan, by law, must contain the districts policy for certain components related to the COVID 19 Pandemic. 

USD #377 is proud to have provided on-site and in-person learning for all students throughout the 2020-2021 school year.  Extensive planning by both school personnel and community members is attributed to the successful reopening of schools after the closure in the Spring of 2020.  Numerous plans, protocols and procedures were developed, implemented and revised during the entire 2020-2021 school year.  These plans, protocols and procedures were rescinded and school ended with none in place.  Moving forward, USD #377 plans to operate as we did prior to the closure but also use what we have learned to improve.  

This plan is a working document, and we will continue to revise and it  reflect changes as necessary.  If you wish to make public comment regarding this plan, please contact Dr. Andrew Gaddis at 913-833-5050 or
