Annual Student Update 

Battle Ground Public Schools is asking parents and guardians to go online and update their student's information and fill out back to school forms before school begins on August 30. Battle Ground has implemented the Annual Student Update process to make the completion of back to school paperwork more efficient for both families and school staff by reducing paper forms. 

The Online Student Update lets families request changes to contact information, including emergency contacts; fill out several back to school forms; provide military family status; and opt out of the release of directory information to military recruiters, institutions of higher learning, non-commercial parties, and the media under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

To complete the student update online, please log in to Skyward (Family Access) and click "Annual Student Update" on the navigation bar in the left column of the web page. Hard copies of forms are available at schools for families who do not complete the update online. Click here for help completing these updates online.

Please visit your school office to update immunization records.
