The Columbia County School District is changing how student information is collected.
Returning students’ parents and/or legal guardians will need to complete an Annual Student Update online using Parent Portal each year. This annual update will allow parents and/or legal guardians to digitally verify required demographic information and upload two current proofs of residence required for student attendance.
New this year, parents and/or legal guardians and students will be asked to review and digitally sign the Columbia County School District Code of Conduct as part of the update. By completing the update online, parents no longer need to complete hardcopy paperwork and forms typically required at the beginning of the school year.
Please note, the Annual Student Update is required for parents and/or legal guardians of all returning students, which also includes current kindergarteners who have completed a Pre-K program in a Columbia County School.
Those without a device or internet connection should request assistance from your child’s school as soon as possible to complete the update. The front office at schools will open on July 23rd.
Students new to the district who enrolled prior to July 15, must return to the online Parent Portal to review and sign the Columbia County School District Student/Parent Code of Conduct, before the first day of school, August 5. In order to complete this final step for enrollment, the student’s registration must be completed at the school level, and parents and/or legal guardians must have an active Parent Portal account to complete the update.
