Back-to-School Student Data Verification Form
Student Demographic Updates
2019-2020 School Year
The Elizabethtown Area School District would like to remind parents/guardians that EACH YEAR they must verify and/or update HIGHLY IMPORTANT student and parent contact information online through the District’s Community Portal. The online Back-to-School Student Data Verification Form helps to ensure that critical student and parent/guardian information is complete, accurate, and valid as early in the school year as possible so EASD can better meet the needs of its students and more efficiently communicate with parents/guardians important information about their child or the district as a whole. This is especially key in the event of an emergency at your child’s school or when winter weather impacts the school day (i.e. closings, delays, early dismissals).
With this online feature that allows for updates to be completed conveniently on any computer, at any time, from anywhere, PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF STUDENTS AT ALL GRADE LEVELS (K-12) must have a Community Portal account. Once you have established a Community Portal account, please update/add the information for your child using the online form titled STUDENT DATA VERIFICATION FORM found on your child’s Community Portal homepage. In addition to updating important student and parent data, the Community Portal will allow parents/guardians to submit a second online form titled Permission to Administer Medications and First Aid. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT BOTH ONLINE FORMS ARE COMPLETED BY SEPTEMBER 15.
To obtain a Community Portal Account, visit the EASD website at www.etownschools.org and navigate to the EASD Community Portal page by clicking on the A+ GRADE PORTAL icon in the top left corner of the website. You will be redirected to the Community Portal page where you will find step-by-step instructions, as well as tip sheets showing how to create an account. If you already have a Community Portal account and need to add additional children, you can do so through Account Settings on the portal. If you have questions about the Community Portal, feel free to contact the District’s Technology Department at email@example.com.
Having the ability to update demographic information online in a timely manner through a direct transfer of information from parent/guardian to the school district is a more efficient way to keep vital student and family data correct.
If you do not have access to the Internet and need a paper packet sent home with your child, please contact the respective school office with your request.
