BVSD Annual Data Update
The online ADU system has replaced the paper registration process throughout the district. The ADU allows you to review the data we currently have for your student(s) and household. You are able to request changes and updates if needed. This process also allows you to electronically complete and submit the Parent/Student Sign-Off Sheet from the Student Rights and Responsibilities Guide. Your child’s school may have other site-specific forms that you will be asked to complete later.
The 2020-21 Annual Data Update will be available on or around June 10, 2020.
Note that the Annual Data Update system is only accessible to parents in a student’s primary household. If your child has a secondary household, please update the information for that additional household as well while you are completing the Annual Data Update for your student(s).
- Step 1: Ask yourself some questions first
- Step 2: Setting up an Infinite Campus Parent Portal Account
- Step 3: Login to Infinite Campus Parent Portal
- Step 4: Start the ADU Application
- Step 5: Complete the Six ADU Tabs
- Is your student already enrolled in BVSD?
If not, you must complete Online Registration (OLR) rather than Annual Data Update (ADU).
- If your student has multiple households (for example, if parents are divorced), do you know if you are the primary or the secondary household?
It is a limitation of the Infinite Campus system, that only primary households are able to update household information through the ADU process. If you are the secondary household, you can still update your household information by contacting your registrar.
- Has your address changed?
If so, you will be required to submit a recent utility bill (within the last 3 months) to verify your new address. If your new address is outside of your student’s current neighborhood area, in the next school year, your student may be moved to the school assigned to your new neighborhood area unless you Open Enroll to your student’s current school.

Who should fill out the ADU?
Parents/Guardians in the students primary household. Secondary household parents/guardians can update information directly with the student's school's Registrar.
When should the ADU be completed?
Each year when it is released, usually in Spring or Summer, before the next school year begins.
How many times can I fill out the ADU?
One ADU is filled out for each household, once per year - all students are included.
How long does the ADU take to complete?
If there are no changes to report, families will click "save" on each page, which will take less than a minute to complete. If families have changes to report, it may take between 5 - 10 minutes to complete.
Do I need to wait until my child visits the doctor's office to upload the immunization record?
No, you may complete the ADU, then email your child's school's Health Clerk to provide the updated immunization record once you have obtained it.
If no information has changed for my family, do I still need to fill this out?
Yes. BVSD requests that all families fill this out each year to ensure accurate data for each student. You would simply confirm the information on each page and submit.
How can I return to the ADU if I need to step away from it?
If you have not yet completed the ADU, you may log back into your parent portal account and resume your update later. Once you have completed/submitted the ADU, you will need to contact your student's school's Registrar with any changes.
When I open the ADU from my Infinite Campus Parent Portal, I see a blank screen. Why?
- You may be listed as a secondary household guardian for the child in our student data system. Our software allows only primary household guardians to submit open enrollment applications through their Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Secondary household parents/guardians can update information directly with the school's Registrar.
- You may not be linked as a parent/guardian to the child in our student data system. Please see your child's school's Registrar to correct this error. The BVSD Enrollment Department may also assist in the event the schools are closed. Once you are linked, you can proceed with the ADU.
- You may have your own profile linked to an employee account (if current/prior BVSD employee) or the profile may be linked to your own student profile if you previously attended schools in BVSD. Please see your child's school's Registrar to correct this. The BVSD Enrollment Department may also assist in the event the schools are closed. Once corrected, you can proceed with the ADU.
- You or another primary household guardian may already have completed the ADU for the coming school year.
I can't find the link to the Annual Data Update in my Infinite Campus Parent Portal account, where is it?
Once logged in, scroll down to the bottom of the left hand index and click on the word "more". This will take you to the second page of your parent account, where you will see the link. You can also refer to step 4 in the "Instructions" section above for a visual.
My username or login are not working; where can I find help?
Go to www.bvsd.org and click on the "paper clip" icon in the upper right. The first drop down is "Infinite Campus Parent Portal". When you click on this, it takes you to a log-in screen, where there are tools to choose if you cannot remember your username or your password. If you still require assistance, contact your student's school's Registrar.
I am a new user, I do not have the activation key mentioned; where can I find help?
If you have NOT yet set up your Parent Portal in Infinite Campus, you should have received an email recently with a Campus Portal Activation Key and instructions. The subject line of the email would have been "Message from BVSD - your access to Infinite Campus Parent Portal" and the sender email address was firstname.lastname@example.org. Please refer to that email to set up your Parent Portal, then return to these directions on how to complete your family's Annual Data Update.
If you do not have a portal yet and you did not receive an email with activation key, please contact BVSD IT Service Desk at 720-561-HELP (4357) or email IT@bvsd.org
The ADU is not accepting my documentation, what can I do?
You can resize your documents to make them smaller (maximum of 5MB or ensure there are no symbols in the name of your document), or you may email them directly to your school's Registrar. Most families can take a black and white picture on their smartphone of requested documents and upload or of course can scan on a scanner and upload. Documents must be a maximum of 5MB and cannot include symbols in the naming convention or else the ADU will not allow you to continue. If you have issues with this please upload a blank page to move the application forward and then email your school's Registrar with the correct documentation so they can upload it for you.
I need to update my name (as a parent/guardian) and the ADU does not allow me to edit. What can I do to update my name?
The ADU will not allow families to update names within the ADU itself. Families may submit a request for a name change in our system directly through their school's Registrar.
I need to update my child's race/ethnicity and the ADU does not allow me to edit. What can I do to update?
The ADU will not allow families to update race/ethnicity within the ADU itself. Families may submit a request for a change in race/ethnicity in our system directly through their school's Registrar.
There are people listed in my household that no longer live in my household and the ADU will not allow me to edit. How can I update this?
The ADU will not allow families to remove persons from the household within the ADU itself. Families may request for persons to be removed from their household directly through their school's Registrar.
Why is my graduated Senior listed on the ADU as a student?
Please note that if you are filling this out before August 1 of the current year, there may be a student mentioned in this section that may have just graduated from high school in the Spring. Please edit/update the minimum information required on this student to move the Annual Data Update forward, as it is a snapshot of your household's family on the date you are filling this form out and our school year does not update itself to the new school year until August 1 each summer.
Why isn't my newly-enrolled student listed in the student section?
If you have recently enrolled a new student, such as a Kindergartener, to begin attending school in the Fall, and they are NOT listed on your list of students, please do not panic, as they will not appear until August 1 on the list. Because you recently enrolled this student, it is assumed that all of the information that was provided in that enrollment is current; there is no need to fill out the ADU for this student alone. If you have changes regarding this new student to report, please send those changes in an email directly to the new student's school Registrar.
Have a question? Contact your school’s registrar for assistance.
