    Enrollment for Fall - Registration and In-Person or Virtual Selection

    AAPS is preparing for the 2021-22 school year and sent out information on PowerSchool Enrollment (formerly called InfoSnap) via email from noreplyregistration@powerschool.com. The email contains a secure "snapcode" link and instructions that connect you directly to your student’s information. 

    This email also includes the opportunity to make your choice of in-person or virtual instruction in the fall. 

    As a reminder from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, all students entering young fives, kindergarten, seventh grade or new to the district will also need to present up-to-date immunization records to their school prior to the first day of school.

    City of Ann Arbor Equitable Engagement Steering Committee

    The City of Ann Arbor is kicking off an Equitable Engagement initiative to overcome our community’s history with racism and biases that have caused important perspectives to be marginalized from community conversations and decision-making processes. You can help by submitting an application to serve on the new Equitable Engagement Steering Committee (due by Monday, June 7). We are looking for participation from all segments of the community, including youth and students.

    Visit www.a2gov.org/A2EquitableEngagement for more information and for the Steering Committee application. Questions? Call 734-794-6430, ext. 42590 or email HSeyfarth@a2gov.org.
