All students must complete a required annual student information update during the window established by the district (which is usually mid-July to late August). Before students can receive schedule or homeroom information, this required online annual update must be completed. This online system replaces the pre-printed pink and blue forms which were used in the past. Current information, such as address, phone numbers, and emergency contacts are required for emergency purposes.
The Back to School Gateway Site is currently unavailable for annual updates at this time. To update student information during the school year, please refer to information and link on the Express Update Gateway page.
To complete the required annual update, go to the Back-to-School Gateway. To begin the process, you will be required to enter your child’s student number and a password. The student number may be obtained from SDPC reports cards or your student’s school. The password will be your student’s date of birth in the following format: mm/dd/yyyy (example: 05/26/2006).
Once you are logged in, click “Edit” to begin the update process. Follow the prompts to enter your student’s information. You will notice that some fields such as the student’s name, date of birth, gender, and guardianship will be locked down and can only be changed by contacting the school in person. However, you can update your address and contact information. A change of address will require presenting proof of residence to your school before the change is accepted. You will also be asked to enter current medical, transportation, and other information about your student. Additionally, you will be prompted to sign off on several required policies and agreements.
You will also notice an option to opt-out of receiving printed interim progress reports. We encourage parents to take this option, and to make use of Schoology, the online system for checking grades and assignments. Opting out of printed interim progress reports helps school save funds that could be used for increased educational opportunities.
Please remember that if you have multiple students in the district, you will need to complete this process for each child.
You may only complete this update process once for each student.
If you have any problems or have questions about Back to School Gateway, please contact your child’s school.
