The Ponca City Public School District announces online registration for the 2023-2024 school year will open July 1, 2023. All returning students who will attend Ponca City Public Schools must be registered online annually through the PowerSchool Parent Portal to update district and state required information. The Parent Portal may be accessed through the PowerSchool link on the district website, www.pcps.us.
Parents are reminded to complete the registration forms for each student in the Parent Portal. Registrations completed prior to July 1, 2023 will not be valid for the 2023-2024 school year.
If parents experience difficulty with their login name or password, assistance is available at the Registration Center. Password resets may require proof of identification through email before they will be processed. The Registration Center (580)-718-3834, will open for in-person assistance beginning July 10, 2023.
Computers will be available during the summer registration window for parent/guardians who do not have access to a computer or need assistance.

The Registration Center, located at 111 W. Grand Avenue, will open for in-person registration (July 10 – 13) (July 17-20) (July 24-27) to receive required documents and to assist with the registration process.

Parents/guardians are instructed to park in the back of the building (on the North side) and enter through the back doorway. Patrons will be welcomed and directed by a greeter.
The Registration Center will be open Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. to accommodate working parents but will be closed Fridays. Parents of returning students can register their children completely online. West, East, and Po-Hi course selection in the spring of 2023 does not register students for the 2023-2024 school year. Parents/guardians must complete the registration process online. Secondary students will not be permitted to pick-up schedules until the registration process is complete.
It is very important that parents register during the district’s registration window if they wish to attend their site of residence. Elementary classes have class-size limits. Once class size limits are reached students are placed on an “overflow” transfer.
