Returning Student Paperwork

Is your child a returning student to a KPBSD school in August 2020? You are in the right place!

tip: If your child is brand new to a KPBSD school in 2020, you will need to begin at the new student enrollment webpage.

Returning students: all the necessary update information and paperwork is now a simplified online process!

It's online, fast, easy, and safe!

For the first time, KPBSD is able to offer you a simple electronic paperwork update for all returning students this year. The new electronic paperwork system simplifies the paperwork process for parents and guardians, allowing you to review, sign, and submit your child's required forms directly online. This process is intended to make the new school year form updates fast, easy, and safe.

Ready to Begin?

The electronic forms process works by using an already existing PowerSchool parent account, or by creating one online. If you already have a PowerSchool account, simply log in to the forms portal using your PowerSchool account credentials. If you do not have an account, you can create one by verifying your email address.

Once your account is created you will be automatically matched to students in the district. If you need to connect additional students to your account, you can verify phone numbers to search for additional matches.

Once you are connected with your students, you can complete the back-to-school paperwork in an easy interface.
