Back to School Info

Parents of all students will be required to enroll their child for the 2021-2022 school year through ASCENDER Parent Portal. You can do this from any computer, anywhere, with Internet access.


Login to ASCENDER to register

Parents of Returning Students to NBISD - You may have noticed that we pushed back our back-to-school online registration to start a week later than normal. This is due to our Student Information System provider pushing out a major update to their system.

This update is being built on an entirely different platform, rebranded and redesigned. What you have known as TxConnect is now Ascender Parent. This is where you will complete online registration as well as monitor your child’s grades throughout the year.

Our provider is still working on a few issues inside online registration, so we currently do not have the Ascender Parent link up on the website. Once we get it published, we will let you know. Below are a few FAQ’s for your information. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your campus office.



3 Easy Steps to Register

Step 1: Register online through the ASCENDER ParentPortal
Complete the online registration before contacting the campus.


Step 2: Make an appointment with your home campus


Step 3: Bring the required items listed below in person to the campus


NOTE: Please keep your login information for ASCENDER ParentPortal. It is not only used for online registration each year, but can also be used to monitor your student’s grades and attendance and/or receive notifications.
