Online Enrollment Kicks Off!
USD 257 has moved to an “online enrollment” format starting July 22nd. Parents will be able to enroll students based on their time frame rather than the schools. USD 257 is looking to save paper and time all the while giving parents more convenience. The online enrollment platform is called Locus and is the product of the Baldwin, Kansas-based company called Reflective Group.
All students will use the online enrollment process, Pre-K – 12.
*Pre-K will not enroll online until eligibility criteria has been confirmed. Preschool enrollment and Kindergarten screening for students who did not screen in April will be August 3rd (10am-6pm and August 4th (8am – 4pm) at McKinley Elementary School.
For those parents that do not have access to technology the USD 257 District Office will have several computers available and staff to help complete the enrollment process.
Support is available between the hours of 8 am—9 pm by dialing (785)-594-1110
Help documents can be found here.
EVERYONE must “CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT” when you start the process. Everyone is going to be a first-time user and they do not have an account.
Applicants who live outside district boundaries must call the Central Office once you have created an account so we can quickly approve your transfer. This includes former/current students. Please call (620) 365-4700 once you have created an account.
If you have questions contact the District Office at (620) 365-4700.
Remember that EVERYONE must “CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT” even if you have enrolled or used Powerschool. This is a new and separate process.
The program will ask for a PIN#. This is a number you create/enter here. You do not wait for an email with a created PIN.
Windsor Pre-K accounts will be reviewed after submission and parents will be notified of application status.

Welcome to Iola USD 257
The mission of USD 257 is to “inspire all students to succeed”. In USD 257 we believe that education will prepare individuals to contribute to family, vocation, and society. We believe that all students can learn and quality education should be made available to all. We believe students should be continually challenged at their ability level and that higher expectations yield measurably higher results. We believe that students should be treated with respect. We believe education is a process rather than a product.
