Welcome to Registration

The Los Alamos Public School District uses PowerSchool Registration, an online data collection system, for new student applications and returning student registrations. The system is fully secure and environmentally conscientious, and allows the district to verify all student information prior to the start of the new school year. The registration system also allows for the electronic signing of all annual permission forms.
