Each year, Alberta Education requires schools to update the information they have on file for every student in their school.
On August 22 and 23, we used School Engage, our online form management system, to share a 2019-2020 Student Update and Verification Form with parents and guardians throughout Northern Lights Public Schools.
This form provides parents and guardians with the opportunity to update or correct the information we have on file for their children. To make things easier, we have also included all of the other consents parents are required to provide on an annual basis. This includes a Notice of Activities, FOIPP consent, CASL consent, and the Acceptable Use of Technology form.
In previous years, this would have been sent home as a package of paper with each child, to be filled out and returned to the school. This year, you will be able to do it online by accessing the form through the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
You will need to access the Parent Portal using a computer (desktop or laptop) in order to access registration forms. You will not be able to access the forms using the Parent Portal app.
If you have already set up your Parent Portal account, you will be able to access the form by clicking on School Engage in the lower left-hand corner of your dashboard. Once you are in School Engage, please do the following:
- Click on Students on the left-hand side menu.
- Click on the name of one of your children.
- Choose the 2019-2020 Student Update and Verification Form.
- The form will be pre-filled with all of the information we already have on file. Please make any necessary changes, and when you have completed the form click SUBMIT at the end.
- Repeat the process for your other children (you need to submit a form for each child).
If you do not already have a Parent Portal account set up, please see the link below for instructions. You will need an Access ID and Access Password for each of your children. If you have not already been provided with that information, please contact your child's school.
If you experience difficulty with accessing or filling out the online form, please call your child's school for assistance.
Please note that any changes that are submitted through the Student Update and Verification Form will need to be reviewed and processed by your school and may not be immediately reflected in your Parent Portal account.Posted on
