Annual Student Update

Battle Ground Public Schools is asking parents and guardians to update their student’s information and fill out back to school forms before school begins on September 1.

The Online Student Update lets families request bus service, make changes to contact information; fill out 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.

2022-23 School Calendars

Calendars for the 2022-23 school year are available on the School Calendars web page.

2022-2023 School Supply Lists

School supply lists are available on the School Supply Lists web page. Battle Ground Public Schools provides basic school supplies for all K-4 students thanks to a rule change that provides 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, but will not need to purchase other necessities like paper, pencils, erasers, scissors and crayons.

Bus Routes K-12

Parents must request bus transportation
In an effort to improve the efficiency of bus transportation, we need families to request or opt in for busing services for next school year. Please note there may not be a bus available, depending on where you live and proximity to your assigned school. Call First Student at (360) 841-7099 Ext. 1 or call our school district transportation office at (360) 885-6577.
