Registering a Student when you are NEW or RETURNING to the District

If you do not currently have a student in the District, you will be unable to log into PowerSchool but the SchoolEngage portal will enable you to register students who are new or returning to EICS.

  1. Go to https://eics.schoolengage.ca/#/login
  2. If you have not yet created an account, click "Create new account?" to create a new account
  3. To finish creating a new account, enter the required information and click "Register"
    • Note: A valid email address will be required to complete the sign up procedure
  4. Once you have registered, log into SchoolEngage and click the "Add Student" button to add a new student, then fill in their information.
    • Important - all fields other than the ASN are required.  The school will fill in the ASN after registration is complete.
  5. Click the Graduation Hat icon and choose the student you added to see a list of forms.
  6. Click "New" beside the registration form that is relevant for the year you are registering

To complete the form successfully you'll also need to ensure that you have a copy of the child's citizenship documentation (e.g. Canadian Birth Certificate, Permanent Residence Card, Student Study Permit, etc.).  For students who are not Canadian citizens, we are also required to maintain parent documentation on file (e.g. Permanent Residence Card, Work Permit, etc.)

Once the child is enrolled in the school, a PowerSchool account will be created automatically for you and connected to the email address used to sign in to SchoolEngage.

Registering a Student using your existing PowerSchool Account

If you already have access to PowerSchool with EICS (e.g. because a sibling of the student is already attending a school in our district) you can log into PowerSchool and register a new student using the following steps:

  1. Log into https://powerschool.eics.ab.ca (contact your school if you do not know your Parent Portal Login Information).
  2. Click "SchoolEngage Student Forms"
  3. From the menu to the left, choose the icon to Add Student, then fill out the student's information
    • Important - all fields other than the ASN are required.  The school will fill in the ASN number after registration is complete.
  4. Click the Graduation Hat icon and click on the student you just created to see a list of available forms
  5. Click "New" beside the registration form that is relevant for the year you are registering

To complete the form successfully you'll also need to ensure that you have a copy of the child's citizenship documentation (e.g. Canadian Birth Certificate, Permanent Residence Card, Student Study Permit, etc.).  For students who are not Canadian citizens, we are also required to maintain parent documentation on file (e.g. Permanent Residence Card, Work Permit, etc.)

Once your child is registered with the district they will automatically be added to your PowerSchool account.

Already a Student at EICS - Data Verification Process

If your child is already a student with EICS a registration form is not required each year.  

Instead:

  • You are required to submit a Data Verification Form which will confirm the details of the registration form each year (we are required to have this form on file by Alberta Education each year)
  • If your child is moving to a new grade in the same school he or she will be automatically registered
  • If your child is transitioning between elementary, middle, junior high and high school, he or she will automatically be registered in the appropriate school according to the EICS boundaries

Please contact Central Learning Services at 780-467-8896 if you have questions about the transition process.
