    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why is this form only available for a short period of time?

    The district is required to provide parents and guardians the ability to update student information every year to ensure we have accurate information on file. Historically, student records are updated at the beginning of the school year in September. Our new online student information verification form will replace the existing paper form sent home with students in the back to school packet.
