Online Registration for Students

2014-15 Back-to-School
REQUIRED Online Registration for Students
Will be performed via WOISD Skyward Family Access

Dear Parents,

The White Oak ISD Online Registration System allows parents and/or guardians to complete the majority of registration forms electronically, eliminating thousands of paper copies, saving parents’ time and increasing staff efficiency. Beginning July 28, families may begin the registration process through their WOISD Skyward Family Access account. Families may verify and update contact and emergency information for each child as well as complete required forms and review policies.

A Skyward Family Access account is necessary to complete the back-to-school Online Registration process for each child. Your one Family Access account will access all your children’s information on all campuses.

What should I do now?
Please access your account and verify that you have access to all of the children in your family. If you do not have access to all children, please contact the student’s campus.

How do I get a login and Password?
All parents should have received the login information for their Skyward Family Access account if they requested it at the beginning of the 2013-14 school year, or if it was requested during the year. This same login and password will be used for Online Registration for the 2014-15 school year.

Which parent can complete the online registration process?
Either parent in the first family listed in Skyward Family Access can complete the online registration process. In joint custody situations, the parent listed in the second family may contact the campus registrar for a login and password to update their contact information; however, only a parent in the first family will be able to complete the full Online Registration process.

Will Online Registration take care of all paperwork?
Online Registration will take care of the majority of the paperwork. Proof of Residency documentation must be presented at In Person Registration in order to complete the registration process. Acceptable forms of Proof of Residency are: Property Tax Receipts or Statements, Current Lease or Buyer Agreement, Utility Bill. Automobile Insurance is NOT acceptable.

What do I do if I do not have access to a computer?
The Primary and Intermediate campuses will provide computers at In Person Registration in order to accommodate parents without computer access. Please make sure you bring your acceptable Proof of Residency documentation with you to In Person Registration.

To access Family Access/Online Registration:

Go to White Oak ISD’s website, www.woisd.net. Hover over the Resources tab; click on For Parents; then click on the Skyward Family Access link. Make sure that Family/Student Access is chosen in Login Area. Type in your Login ID and Password.

Once you have logged into your account, there are a few housekeeping items you will need to take care of before you are ready for the Required Online Registration.

If the email address is incorrect, click the “Change My Email” box at the right and enter the correct address.
