Normal Park Student Registration Info
We have streamlined the registration process into the following steps. Steps 1-3 must be completed before your child begins school in the fall. If you are having trouble with any of the links, they are also available at www.hcde.org.
Step 1: Complete Normal Park Registration form
You will need to submit a Google form that is specific to Normal Park students. This is NOT optional. Both zoned and magnet students will need two proofs of residence ready to upload before you start. Scan in or take a picture of a utility bill, cell phone bill, bank statement, etc.
Because proofs of residence must be no older than two months, the NP registration form will be available starting June 1st.
Step 2: Complete online student registration for HCDE
Registration for RETURNING STUDENTS is available May 1-May 31st for the 2021 - 2022 school year. It will reopen July 19th. If your child attended a Hamilton County school in 2020 - 2021 (either in-person or virtually) and will be attending another Hamilton County school in the fall, your child will enroll as a Returning Student. Visit the PowerSchool Parent Portal to enroll your child.
NEW THIS YEAR: You will notice during registration that parents and emergency contacts have been combined in the online form on one page that is titled "Contacts". All of your child's emergency contacts will be prepopulated in there, including parents and anyone listed as an emergency contact last year. Once all of your contacts have been entered/updated, you will prioritize them on the next page. Prioritize ALL contacts please. Do not skip this important step.
If you are new to PowerSchool and you do not have a Parent Portal access ID and password or have forgotten your login info, please contact the school. Lower School parents Grades K-3rd email email@example.com for login info. Upper School parents grades 4th-8th email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration is best completed using Google Chrome on a desktop computer. You cannot register through the Google app.
The set up is different this year and instead of asking for parent names, it only asks for Emergency Contacts. LIST PARENT/GUARDIANS first as emergency contacts.
NOTE: You do not need to upload proofs of residence in PowerSchool. Proofs will be uploaded in Step 1 above.

NEW MAGNET STUDENTS
If your child went to another HCDE school last year and has accepted a magnet spot at Normal Park for the 2021-22 year, register as a returning student. We will transfer them into our system. Kindergarten magnet students will register as a New Student.

Step 7: Complete a Free and Reduced Lunch application (optional)
Income guidelines are adjusted each year, and families need to submit a new application at the beginning of each school year, either online or by completing a paper application (available in the cafeteria). Online applications will be available on the Titan website: https://family.titank12.com
