Back to School Guide

Superintendent’s Welcome Back Message

Superintendent Mark Ross, who has served as superintendent for the past two years, shares his thoughts on some areas the Battle Ground Schools will be focusing on for the upcoming school year. Read Ross’s Welcome Back message here.

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 27.

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. See the instructions for completing the update.

Please visit your school office to update immunization records.

2019-2020 School Supply Lists

School supply lists for the 2019-20 school year are available below at Please note that Battle Ground Public Schools will provide basic school supplies for all K-4 students next year thanks to a rule change that will provide the district with revenue from timber sales that occur within the district’s boundaries. K-4 families will still need to provide backpacks and perhaps reusable water bottles and earbuds for 2019-20, but will not need to purchase other necessities like paper, pencils, erasers, scissors and crayons.
