Parents must login to Skyward Family Access Prior to Registration


The Germantown Municipal School District will be changing to a new Student Information System (SIS) for the 2017-2018 school year.

Skyward will be the new SIS for the Germantown Municipal School District. Over 60 other districts in Tennessee have converted to Skyward, and we believe it will be a better product for communicating grades and other important information to parents.

The official change will occur this summer, so families will continue to use PowerSchool for the remainder of this school year.

All current GMSD parents need to log into Skyward Family Access and do the following:

1. Change your password to prepare for on-line registration
2. Beginning April 17th, complete Current Student Registration in Skyward Family Access
3. If you are registering a child that has never attended a GMSD school, a Kindergartener for example, you will log into Skyward Family Access Beginning April 10th to complete the New Student Registration
