Online Enrollment for Hays USD 489 has opened as of Monday. Below are the steps for completing enrollment forms and paying the enrollment fees. There’s also information about when you can come in person to meet your enrollment needs.

There are two steps for enrolling your student/students at USD 489.

The first step is to complete the online forms that are accessible through your PowerSchool Parent Account. Once you are logged in you will click on Ecollect Forms in the menu along the left side of the screen. This will take you to a list of forms that are required for enrollment. You can fill these out at your convenience before Aug. 1 or you can come to Hays High on Aug. 1 or 2 during Central Enrollment and use district devices to fill out the forms. Instructions on how to progress through the forms are on the USD 489 website, 

The second step is to pay the enrollment fees. This can be done online through our district store (3.61 percent convenience fee is applied) or you are can go to the Central Enrollment at Hays High School on August 1 and 2 to pay by either cash or check. The district online store is accessible at or on the USD 489 website. Instructions on how to maneuver through the online store are on the USD 489 website. If you choose to fill out the forms online and pay by cash or check at the Central Enrollment, there is a Speedy Checkout line that will get you in and out quick.
