If your child attended 4-Year-Old Preschool--11th grade at North Iowa during the previous school year, much of the registration will be done electronically. The information you provided last year will already be completed on the screen. You will need to look it over carefully and update information as needed. Computers will be available during Walk-In Registration in August and in the elementary, middle school and high school offices after that. You may also complete it at home.
