  • Campus and District Registrars are school employees who have the ability to register multiple staff members of their respective schools at one time for professional development opportunities.  They also have reporting functionality available to them that regular users do not have.

    If you are registered for an event that you did not personally register for, it is possible that your Campus or District Registrar registered you for that event.  Please contact your school administrator to find out who your Campus or District Registrar is.

    If you are a school administrator and would like to learn more about Campus and District Registrars including how to give someone at your district that ability, contact our registration team at or at (254) 297-1210.
