Online Forms

This summer Independence Schools transitioned to online registration forms. We have had great success with parents creating accounts and completing necessary forms, but we are still missing many of you. 

You may have noticed that your child did not bring home many forms you are used to seeing every fall at the start of a new school year. This summer Indy rolled out our new online forms system for parents. This system includes Emergency Medical Forms, Acceptable Use Policy, Constant Contact information, and more. A letter was mailed to each household in August with a blue sheet of paper that had directions and a unique registration number. If you never received this letter, or misplaced it, please CLICK HERE to email Mr. Pennington for the necessary directions.

Our new online system will automatically complete information for you if you have multiple children in the district and remembers your information from year-to-year. This means less questions to answer for parents and the elimination of weeks of work by our staff who used to hand enter information from the paper forms, into our state database.

Introducing . . . Independence Local Schools' #IPrideStar of the Week Introducing . . . Independence Local Schools' #IPrideStar of the Week
The community of Independence is a great place to live, work, play and learn. Independence Local Schools recognizes those individuals who go over and beyond to make a difference in other people's lives. They are extraordinary...unique...talented...and deserve to be recognized. Those we acknowledge can be anyone from our community - a teacher, staff member, student, administrator, resident, parent, volunteer, business person, alumni, or a representative of a community organization.

Through our Facebook page and website, we will introduce you to our #IPrideStar of the Week. These individuals also will be recognized at our monthly Board of Education meetings.  We hope these individuals and their stories inspire you and bring a smile to your face.

All IPride Stars of the Week will be selected randomly.

If you would like, you can also email a picture to cpaparizos@independence.k12.oh.us.  This is optional and is not a requirement to nominate someone.
