Beginning fall 2016, District 7 will partner with a registration and data validation system powered by InfoSnap This system will replace the mountains of paper documents your child brings home on the first day of school and will allow you, instead, to electronically sign and submit these annual permission forms and policies.
During the last week of school, you will receive a communication from your child’s school with details about how to access the system for your child or children. This correspondence will provide you with a secure “snapcode that links directly to your child’s student information. You will be Instructed on how to create an account, to be used each year for this process and, for families with multiple children, you will have the option to copy all generic information from one child to the next. If you do not have an email account, please go to,, or and sign up for a free account. You will need an email address to receive the information. If your email address is not on file already, please notify your child’s school of your email address by May 3, 2016.
It will be extremely important that you save the snapcode assigned to your family and that you submit the information regarding your child’s registration in a timely manner. A student’s registration for the new school year will not be complete until this information is included in our database. If you do not have Internet access, your child’s school will notify you of time periods when you can use a school computer for this process. Our partners at InfoSnap have tremendous experience working with school districts throughout the country and are eager to help make this an easy transition for all of us’ If you have any further questions, please contact the main office at your child’s school.
