Returning Student Registration

What's the Difference Between Enrollment & Registration?

Enrollment is the process of signing up for school and proving that you are a resident of District 39. Enrollment only takes place when your child first enters District 39 (Kindergarten, or when you move to Wilmette).

Registration is the annual verification of information about your student, where you provide emergency contact information, update medical information, confirm permissions for internet use and field trips, etc., and provide information for your listing in the school's annual directory.

RegistrationLetterInstructions for Student Registration

Emails with registration information are mailed out annually in the Spring. The letters contain instructions on how to complete registration and make fee payments, as well as your student's login ID and password.

The first screen is where you enter your login ID for the Account Name, and password for the Password, then click the Login button:



(Note: The above is a screenshot of the login screen, not the actual login screen itself)

Please follow the registration prompts. Update your information for your child as accurately as possible for each section. All fields are required. When you get to the Directory page, click Preview to see your Student Directory entry. When finished, enter your name in the Sign Off field and click the button labeled Sign Off and Exit.

Please note: If you have more than one child in the district, you will need to repeat the registration process for each child. After you have completed the registration for your first child, click Sign Off and Exit and then on the next screen click Exit to return to the login screen, and login with your next child's information. (If you do not click Exit, you will be automatically returned to the first child's information).

Once you have completed the online student registration process, return to the initial Registration web page and click Pay your school fees online. Follow the online prompts to pay your fees.


Downloadable forms are in PDF format, and may be viewed with Preview (on a Mac) or with Adobe Reader (any platform).

Fee Payments and Transportation

You can make fee payments, sign up for Bus Transportation, and make School Lunch program payments through RevTrak.

Please note that although Registration and Fee Payments can both be accessed from this page, they are two totally separate systems, with different logins and different procedures.

A Few Notes on Passwords

We often get comments about the various different passwords used for District 39; we honestly do try to keep the number of passwords required to a minimum. There are currently three different passwords/logins that District 39 parents regularly use. The reason for this is that there are three totally separate systems, each with their own setups/standards. (Note that we don't assign the password for RevTrak, you do that when you make your first payment with them, but you may wish to use the same password as for Registration if that would simplify things for you.)

  1. Student ID/Web ID/Account Name and Password
    This is the ID and password you use to access Registration, and Parent-Teacher Conference sign-up, and also (if your child is in Junior High). The ID number is constant throughout your child's tenure at District 39: it is their Student ID number. The password is a six digit random number which we assign to you, and send to you in an email or letter every spring. The password stays the same until you request it to be changed, or if there are problems with your account.
  2. RevTrak, Fees Payments
    RevTrak is an outside company that handles our online credit card processing. The first time you make an online payment via RevTrak, you will set up an account with them where you will create your own password (your username is your email address). If you have forgotten your password, there is a big friendly "Password Reminder" button on their home page, and a link for the same in the left-hand column.

    When you go to RevTrak to pay Instructional Materials Fees or Transportation fees for your student, you will also need to know their Student ID number (this is the same ID as mentioned in item one above). This insures that the fee paid is credited to the appropriate child (for families with more than one student).
  3. Lunch Account
    You can log into the Total Access (formerly School Dining) account to view your student's lunch purchases and to add money to the school dining account. NOTE: Kindergarteners and new students are NOT in the School Dining system until August 1. You cannot add funds to the dining account until then.

    The Total Access username is the last 7 digits of your home phone number without dashes, e.g.: if your home phone number was (847) 256-2450, your username would be 2562450. This is used as a so that all students in one household may be grouped together. If you've forgotten your password, you can recover it by entering your email address on the "recover password" page. See the Food Services page for more information.
