My Registrations



There are three types of enrollment that may apply to you:

MHSAP Enrollment

If you reside in the Marion School District, you may enroll into the MHSAP at any time of the year, by contacting our office, (319) 373-9209. Please fill out the MHSAP Application Form (download to open form you can type in). Printed copies can be obtained from our office.  

Program families enroll online through a district database program called PowerSchool. After contacting us you will be sent information on how to access this database from your computer. Currently enrolled families can review and update information on their student(s) in PowerSchool.

Open Enrollment

If you live outside the Marion District, your district may currently host a home school assistance program. If your district does not host a program, or you prefer the services that MHSAP has to offer and live within 45 miles, you may open enroll into the Marion District.

Open Enrollment UPDATE!
2024-2025 Open Enrollment DEADLINE for 1st-12th grade: July 1
Open Enrollment DEADLINE for Kindergarteners: September 1
The State is reinstating the open enrollment deadline it removed a few years ago. This only applies to NEW students outside of the Marion district, who desire to enroll within the Marion School District.  If you are currently open-enrolled, there is no need to renew. The open enrollment annual deadline will be March 1st for students in 1st-12th grade, and September 1st for Kindergarteners. We understanding that this will go into effect on July 1st which means that no new open enrollment applications for the 2024-25 school year will be approved after July 1st, unless they meet one of the specific good causes outlined by the Iowa Dept. of Education. If we have been misinformed about the effective date of implementation, and it comes sooner, we recommend getting open enrollment applications submitted ASAP for 24-25.  

You may obtain an open enrollment form online or by contacting us. Approval from the District can take a month or more and OEs must be approved before a student can be registered for Enrichment classes. Submit OE forms as soon as possible. Once completed, email to Tami Pollock,, drop them off at MHSAP or mail to MHSAP, 1400 10th Ave., Marion, IA 52302.

Once the open enrollment request has been submitted and approved by the Marion District, we will contact you to set up an orientation interview to answer any questions you have and familiarize you with our program services. An online account will also be set up for you in PowerSchool.

Dual Enrollment

Dual enrollment is a term used to describe a student who is primarily home educated, but who desires participation in selected classes and activities through the public school’s regular education program. If you desire dual enrollment, please indicate that on your open enrollment application and/or the MHSAP Enrollment process. Dual Enrollment is further categorized into Academic and Extracurricular.
