Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a copy of my diploma and/or transcript?
The District does not provide copies of diplomas. However, the District does provide electronic transcripts. We have partnered with Parchment, Inc. to establish a safe, paperless way to send official transcripts. Please visit our Alumni page under the Community tab for more information.

How do I register my child?  
We moved, how do I update my address?
Additional information about completing these changes can be found on our Registration page.

How do I request a Transportation Exception?
A District Transportation Exception Request form may be used to request a bus stop different from the assigned stop associated with the child’s residence provided the alternative stop is in the same school attendance area as the child’s school.  For additional information and the necessary form, please click here. Please note, exceptions must be resubmitted each school year.

Where can I find help with PowerSchool?
