2023 Spring Registration Announcement
Spring Registration for 2023 begins December 12 for California teachers and December 14 for out-of-state teachers. Calendars will open both days at 3pm. Programs will run from January 9th-June 16th!
Why are we offering fall registration and spring registration instead of opening up the whole year?
Teachers will now get TWO opportunities to register on an open calendar, once on September 1st, and a second opportunity on December 12.
Teachers will no longer need to plan so far ahead, leaving less room for changes, forgotten appointments, and cancellations.
Our staff will now have more opportunity to participate in professional development trainings held throughout the year.
Why are we offering a delayed registration date for out of state teachers?
We are a State of California resource, and increasing access to California students is our top priority.
Out-of state registration that occurs prior to December 14th are subject to cancellation.
Are we able to register after December 12 / December 14?
Yes, after the calendar opens registration will be available - so long as there are open appointments - through the spring.
How do I select program start time? ****** NEW!
This spring, some parks will be offering programs within blocks of time. This means you will see multiple program start times to select from (9am, 9:15am, 9:30am, etc.) and as soon as one is booked, the next 45 minutes will be listed unavailable.
Parks that are unable to offer blocks of time will offer set start times as usual.
The time you select is the start time of your program. Once confirmed this cannot be changed.
What if the program I want to attend is fully booked before I get an opportunity to register?
Take a look at our PORTScasts calendar! PORTScasts are open for any teacher and any student to register. They are held in a safe webinar format to increase our reach to more than just one classroom. Who knows what part of the world your PORTScast classmates might be in!
Visit the PORTS YouTube page and our individual park pages to see what resources are available at your fingertips!
Can I invite multiple classrooms to my on demand program?
Most likely yes. However PLEASE contact your PORTS program presenter to confirm and be sure to provide an updated number of students attending.
Does PORTS have classroom resources I can use to go with my virtual programs?
