Q: What is the difference between enrollment and Back to School Sign Up (BSSU)?
A: A student is enrolled only once in order to attend school in the district. Back to School Sign Up is an annual process that each family completes online every August. During this annual online process, you will update family information and required documents as well as have the opportunity to pay for supplies, yearbooks, directories, spirit wear, etc. Your Skyward login and password will be used to complete Back to School Sign Up.
Q: What do I enter as the expected enrollment date?
A: If you are enrolling for the current year, please enter the date you expect your student to start.
If you are enrolling your student for 2018-19, please enter the start date of 8/23/18.
Q: How do I add another legal guardian who lives at another address?
A: To enter a second guardian living in a SEPARATE household, please click “Yes, I want to add a legal guardian who lives at a different address.”
Q: When I add another guardian and enter his/her primary telephone number, it overrides the current primary telephone number with his/her number. How can I correct this?
A: Skyward only allows one primary number per household. Please decide which number you would like to list as your primary number.
Q: What documents will the district accept as a temporary substitute for documents required on the enrollment page?
A: For a deed or lease:
If you have a signed, dated, executed contract for a residence, campuses will temporarily accept the contract until a closing statement or deed can be submitted. A copy of the closing statement or deed in its entirety is due the business day after the closing occurs.
For a water or electric bill:
If you have not yet received a water or electric bill, campuses will temporarily accept a copy of your request for service. A copy of the first bill is due to the campus within 30 days.
For a driver’s license:
If you are new to Texas, please provide a copy of your current driver’s license. A copy of your Texas driver’s license is due to the campus within 30 days.
If you are a current Texas resident, please provide a copy of your new driver’s license with the address matching your residency documents. Campuses will temporarily accept a printout of your online DPS change of address request form. A copy of your new license is due to the campus within 30 days.
For a social security card:
If you are missing your child’s social security card, you must request a replacement at the Social Security Administration. Campuses will temporarily accept a copy of the request for a replacement card. A copy of the new card is due as soon as you receive it.
Q: Why am I unable to view my incoming student's information after I submit his/her enrollment?
A: You will not be able to view your newly enrolled student's information until the campus has approved the student’s enrollment.
Q: What does the District mean by a “lease of reasonable duration?”
A: Any short-term lease must extend at least two months into the semester in order to meet the residency requirement.
