Displayed from: May 31, 2018 , until: Jul 31, 2018

With the 2017-18 school year over, Fort Wayne Community Schools is now preparing for the 2018-19 school year. The District’s convenient online pre-registration opens Friday, allowing current families to fill out routine registration forms online prior to in-school registration in July.

The myFWCS parent portal can be accessed from the FWCS website at www.fortwayneschools.org or through the FWCS mobile app. Parents who used the system in previous years, will simply need to log in again. Those who are using MyFWCS for the first time will be prompted to create an account. Security settings are in place to ensure only parents can access their child’s information.

Online pre-registration will be available through Sunday, July 8. Parents who need access to a computer to complete online pre-registration should contact their child’s school or the closest school to their home. Schools will offer limited access to computers.

Parents will still need to attend in-school registration, but if they complete the pre-registration online, they will be able to go through the Rapid Registration line, making the process much faster. In-school registration will take place from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. on Friday, July 27, and noon-7 p.m. on Monday, July 30. Parents will need a photo ID and two proofs of residence.

The portal is not available to new families at this time. All new families will go to the new Family and Community Engagement Center, 230 E. Douglas Ave., to register. Daily hours at the center are 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Questions should be directed to the Family and Community Engagement Center at 260.467.2120.
