Admissions/Data Update FAQs

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Platte Valley School District has implemented online admissions and data updates for the convenience of our parents and our staff. If you are experiencing difficulty with the online admissions and data update system and cannot find the answers on our website, please contact the school at which your student attends or will attend:

  • Early Learning Center: 970-336-8760
  • Elementary School: 970-336-8522
  • Middle School: 970-336-8610
  • High School: 970-336-8708

How can I access the online admissions and data updates process?

Link to existing student data updates and new student admissions by visiting the Platte Valley School District Admissions and Data Update web page.

Is there a difference between references to "Online Admissions and Data Updates" versus "Online Registration"?  

There is no difference related to the process itself. Platte Valley Schools use the "Admissions" and "Annual Data Update" terminology to clarify and better define the expectations for our parents. "Online Registration" or "OLR" is the terminology Infinite Campus uses to describe their product.

Can I save my progress and come back to the admissions/data update process later?

Absolutely! If you are an Existing Family parent/guardian, you can log back in through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal, navigate to More > Online Registration. If you are a New Family to our district, make sure to have your confirmation number to continue your update.

I clicked the admissions/data update link and nothing came up. What should I do?

The online system uses a pop-up window. Below are the steps for each of the different internet browsers.

  • Chrome: In the address bar, click on the Pop-ups blocked symbol, and then choose to allow the link that displays for Infinite Campus.
  • Microsoft Edge: Select the three dots in upper right corner. Choose Settings>Cookies and site permissions. Under Site permissions choose to allow pop-ups and redirects for Infinite Campus.
  • Firefox: At the top of the page, in the box that says "Firefox prevented this site from opening 1 pop-up window," click on the Preferences button, and then click on the bottom option, Show.
  • Safari and Internet Explorer browsers are not recommended for registration.

What is a student primary household?

This is the primary contact information for the household at which the student resides 51% or more of the time. You will have an opportunity to include an alternate mailing address or a secondary household in later steps.

What are the rules for parents/guardians?

Parent/Guardians listed for each student must be that student’s legal guardian. Proof of guardianship includes: parent’s name on official birth certificate, adoption paperwork, legal guardianship paperwork. Parents who are not legal guardians (including step-parents who have not adopted the student) can still be listed but will not have guardianship access to student records.

What is an emergency contact?

In AN EMERGENCY, if the parent/guardian cannot be contacted, the school will call one of the listed emergency contacts. Proper identification will be required before a student is released to emergency contacts. Contacts should be able to pick up the student within 30 minutes.

Why is the system asking for other people in the household?

Please include all people in your household. This data is used when processing applications for free and reduced lunch.

What is impact aid?

This is a state-mandated data collection requirement.

Why is the system asking for race/ethnicity information?

Data collected must be maintained by the school district for three years. However, when there is litigation, a claim, an audit, or another action involving this record, the original responses must be retained until the completion of the action.
