Step Three

Application submitted. What’s next?

You’ll receive an email confirmation that the application was received. You can check the status online anytime. Online Registration status will display “waiting” until it is accepted or denied. When an application is accepted, the registrar will notify the primary parent email address in the account. The Online Registration status display will disappear from your account. You can now add an additional students, if desired. Do not complete another application for the accepted student.

Applications are reviewed individually for multiple criteria in the order received. We’re working hard but during high volume times, this may take some time and your patience is very appreciated!

An application can not be accepted for the following reasons:

A new application is for a student that already exists in our data system. Duplicate student entries are returned.
It is missing the Choice Transfer/Out of District Release (if required)
It is missing transcripts, if the scholar is a high school student new to FWPS
It is missing the IEP or Section 504 documents (if applicable). Learning plans are evaluated by the district to ensure appropriate placement.
Other issues not listed (less common)

If there is an issue with the application, the registrar will send an email to the primary parent email address notifying them of the issue and how it may be resolved.

Our application was accepted. How does my student access their classes?

A message with the student username, password and login instructions will be sent to each parent email address provided during enrollment before the first day of school. Parents and guardians will need to share this information with their student.

We’re so glad you’ve chosen iA and are excited to learn with you this year!
