New Student
Registration for 2020-21

As of June 8, 2020, the District is using a new Student Information System, Synergy. With the new student information system, we focused on and are delivering several key improvements for this year's online registration experience:

  • One Registration Per Family: You will find an easier to use and more streamlined registration process for the upcoming school year. Our new single registration process means that families with more than one child only need to enter shared information once and it can be applied in the system for all children in the household.
  • Accept and Upload Documents, Save a Trip: During online registration, you will have the option to submit residency and complete other registration documents digitally, saving even more time using your mobile device or a scanner.
  • Translation, Online Registration for You: Online registration is now translated across the District's top eleven non-English languages spoken by families: Spanish, Telegu, Hindi, Tamil, Urdu, Chinese Mandarin, Gujarati, Arabic, Marathi, Malayalam and Russian.
  • PTA Membership and IPEF Donations: You can share you/your child(ren)'s information with the school PTA, as well as take next steps to join the PTA during online registration. Also, you'll have the opportunity to make a donation to the Indian Prairie Education Foundation (IPEF).
  • Residency Verification: If you have children in different District schools, you will not need to visit each building - a residency verification for one student will automatically apply to eligible students.
  • Single Sign-On: Later this summer, your ParentVUE user name and password will provide you access to the District's Single Sign-On (SSO) service. The SSO is your jumping place to available websites and services connected to your family - all using your single user name and password. As we move services to the SSO, you won't need to create a new login or a new password. We'll be adding more resources to the SSO, so check back often.

If you have technical questions about how to complete your family's online registration, we invite you to reach out to our Student Information System support team by email at sis@ipsd.org or by calling our SIS Support hotline at 630-375-3111. Please include your name, phone number, student ID number(s) as well as a brief description of the problem you are experiencing.

Registration: Returning Students

Returning for the next school year?

We're excited to welcome you and your family back to Indian Prairie School District 204!

Over the past year, we've been hard at work to bring you a more robust, comprehensive and inclusive student information system called Synergy. We can't wait for you to complete online registration using Synergy's parent portal, ParentVUE.

In order to get ready for the first day of school, you will need to register your child using ParentVUE. Included below are the steps for you to complete online registration for the upcoming school year.

Registering Your Child for Indian Prairie School District 204

Online Registration will be available beginning June 8, 2020 for the 2020-2021 school year. During online registration, you will be asked to provide a series of documents for your child, depending on their grade level and age.

These documents can be provided by using a scanner or using the ParentVUE app to take a picture using an iOS or Android device. Instructions for uploading documents are available on the Registration FAQs tab on this page.

Resources and FAQ

I requested a password reset but never received the email - I checked my SPAM and junk folder too.

Did you use a different email address in Home Access Center? Only on file email addresses will receive a password reset email notification.

Did another individual in your family have a Home Access Center account? It is possible that you did not have a Home Access Center account previously. A staff member will need to review your account to determine if this is the case. Please ensure that you have provided the information requested above in your reply.

I received my password reset email but when I try to reset the password it says that my first and last name do not match the information on file.

We received information from our vendor that the password reset process should be done either on a desktop computer or using the ParentVUE mobile app (available on the Google Play or Apple App Store). You may experience an issue completing a password reset using your mobile device web browser and not the app.

If you still experience issues, the name on file may not exactly match what data is being entered. In this case a staff member will need to review your account. Please ensure that you have provided the information requested above in your reply.

When I log in to ParentVUE, I cannot see all/any of my children to register them or view their report cards.

Depending on how your access was established in eSchool+ we may need to review the link/connection between you and your children in our system. In this case, a staff member will need to review your account. Please ensure that you have provided the information requested above in your reply.

Do not begin online registration until a staff member replies that this has been resolved. If you begin an online registration, we will need to reset your progress so that you can register your child/ren.

When I log in to ParentVUE, I cannot see my graduating senior's report card.

Students who graduated no longer have access to Home Access Center to view report card information. Instead, final grades for graduates can be viewed via a student’s transcript. Parents and students can easily order transcripts online at any time through Parchment. Personal copies are available at no cost. Transcripts showing final grades will be emailed once the online form is submitted and your high school verifies your information. You can find more information online: http://www.ipsd.org/Subpage.aspx/Transcripts

When I log in to ParentVUE, I cannot see all of my child’s academic data and information.

We are continuing to load information about students in the District over the next several weeks. Also, we are not loading all historical report cards, and this was also not available in Home Access Center. You can access all of your student’s previous grades under “Course History” in ParentVUE. Moving forward, you will be able to access report cards that are generated for future semesters.
