Higley online registration process
Higley Unified School District is launching a new online registration process. This system allows families to complete all registration and/or open enrollment forms and add photographed or scanned documentation (including proof of residency and birth certificates). Users can save the document in process, step away, and return when they have gathered everything that is needed.
The system is now accepting 2020/2021 registration. Click here to get started. Families will be prompted to use a ParentVUE log-in or create a new ParentVUE account.
Families will be contacted on a business day within 48 hours. A list of frequently asked can be found here. If you have further questions, please contact your school.
ParentVue is the HUSD portal to student grades and attendance history. Higley’s 6th grade, middle school and high school parents use ParentVue for course request approvals for the upcoming school year.
The Higley District is adding new features to the system. Beginning in January 2020, ParentVue can be used to submit new student registration forms and submit open enrollment forms. Families will use ParentVue in Spring 2020 to complete re-enrollment forms.
Families that have not activated their ParentVue accounts, but have an e-mail on file with the district, will soon receive an e-mail from ParentVue inviting them to activate their ParentVue accounts. Directions will be provided in the email to access to this communication tool.
