2020-21 Online Verification

  • verification image



    Online Verification through Skyward Family Access for the 2020-21 school year is available to parents/guardians from Tuesday, July 14, through Friday, August 21.

    If your students attended ANY school in the District last year (2019-20), now is the time to verify their enrollment for the new year (2020-21). This includes students who are returning to the same school or moving to a new school.

    Through Online Verification, parents/guardians confirm that all student information in Skyward is accurate and up to date. This includes student health information, your contact information, and emergency contacts. The Online verification process also allows families to submit an application for free/reduced-price meals for the 2020-21 school year. (You will be prompted to submit an application or decline if you do not qualify.) Online Verification reduces paperwork and provides schools the best information to serve your student in the new school year.

    If you submitted an elementary transfer application during our Open Enrollment window in April, please note that decisions on elementary transfers will be made in late August. The school listed on your student’s online verification is not an approval or denial of your transfer application.
