2020-2021 Returning Student Registration

Henrietta ISD is excited to launch online registration.  We hope this will make it easier to register your student, especially under the current circumstances. 

We will open registration in phases.  We will first open registration for current HISD students (referred to as returning students) who will be returning in the fall. The process will be streamlined for those students as much of their information will already be in the system and simply need to be updated.  Doing this online, either by your phone or a computer should make things much more efficient. 

If you are not returning in the fall, we are asking that you please fill out the online form indicating that you will not be returning.  The form can be found here.

Returning student online registration will open beginning May 15, 2020 and close by noon on May 31, 2020.  To access Returning Student Online Registration, you will need to have an active Ascender Parent Portal Account as well as use an active email account that is on file with your student’s campus.  You will be able to access Ascender Parent Portal from our website at www.henrietta-isd.net. Scroll down past the large image and find the Parent Portal icon.  You can also access via the Henrietta ISD app.  The app is free and available in the iTunes and Google Play stores. 

We will provide information on enrolling new students to the district (including Head Start, Pre-K, and Kindergarten students) at the beginning of June. If your student  attended Head Start, Pre-K, or Kindergarten last year, you will need to participate in the current, returning student, registration. 

Please follow the instructions below:


Create an account or login using your credentials. You must use the email address that the school has on file.  If you aren’t sure, or it has changed, please contact your campus secretary for clarification.  Email may be the best way to reach them.  Their email address can be found on the school website. If you do not have a parent portal account set up for your child, please request the information to do so here.

If you do not remember your login information, you may try the username/password reset link.  If that doesn’t work, please go here. We cannot recover passwords.  We can only delete the account and let you start over.  If you no longer have your portal information, you will have to fill out the form to request that the information be sent to you. 


The district tracks the required registration forms to ensure that they are submitted for all students. Icons are displayed next to the forms to indicate the status of each required form for your student.  The required forms are listed on the left.

“(Pending)” is displayed if the form requires your attention.
“(Completed)” is displayed once you have updated and/or confirmed data on the form.

Click Start Registration.

The first form in the list opens on the right side of the page.

Continue reviewing forms and clicking Next until you have reviewed and updated all of the necessary forms.

Depending on the form type and district requirements, a form will require one of two actions: view only, or review and update.

Clicking Next indicates that you have entered all required data and/or made all necessary changes to existing data. Your data will be validated, and you cannot continue until you have entered all required data in a valid format.

Click Next. (It may be necessary to scroll down to see the button.)

If you are not ready to complete one or more forms, click Save for later.

If you leave parent portal before finishing registration updates, a Resume Registration button is displayed allowing you to continue where you left off.

When you have viewed and entered all required data on all required forms, the Finish button is displayed.

Click Finish. The final page opens allowing you to print a confirmation for your records.

If there are any issues with the information that you submit, the campus secretary will “reject” the form.  You should receive an email indicating that you have had a form returned.  There should be a note with the form explaining what type of clarification is needed.  Please make the needed correction and resubmit the form. 

On the main Ascender Parent Portal Page, you will find Henrietta ISD Documents area.  In that area you will find a copy of the school calendar, the HES and HJH supply lists, HISD enrollment document requirements for new students, along with the Transfer and Pre-K applications. 

You can download a copy of the Transfer and/or Pre-K application and save it to your computer. Once the information is filled in, save it to your computer.  You can then attach the completed form to an email and submit it to your campus secretary. 

You may notice there is no application for free or reduced-price lunches in the information this year.  We are moving the application process online.  We will send out the application information when the window to apply opens.   


For more information, please contact the campus secretary.
