FAQ

Enrollment Frequently Asked Questions

Our family is going to move into the BVSD attendance boundaries, when can I enroll my children for school?

Wait to enroll.  Because a current proof of residence is required for student enrollment, families must wait until they have officially relocated into our BVSD boundaries in order to provide a proof of residence and enroll at that time.  Please refer to the "Required Documentation" section above to view our acceptable forms of documentation.


How will I know which school's attendance area my household is in?

You can use our School Finder feature found on our website to find the correct school.  We ask that you do not rely on outside entities such as realtors, community members, etc. to determine your household's neighborhood school.  Our School Finder will direct you.


When can I apply if my child is starting school in the Fall?

Our department is able to accept enrollment applications beginning January of the same calendar year that you plan for your child to attend.  For example, January 2020 for the 2020-2021 school year.


What documentation do I need to upload to my online enrollment application?

Please refer to the information above under the "Required Documentation" section.


I do not have internet access at home. Where can I go to enroll my student?

All of our schools have enrollment kiosks/computers that families can use and trained staff can assist with online enrollments.  Our Student Enrollment Department staff at the BVSD Education Center can also assist in the event that schools are closed (such as Summer break) or if our location is more convenient for families.  We are not able to provide paper versions of enrollment applications.


I have a child enrolling in Preschool and a child enrolling into a higher grade, which application do I fill out?

Both.  Because online enrollment applications for Preschool students requires alternate documentation, a separate enrollment for your Preschool-aged child must be submitted in addition to submitting a K-12 online enrollment application for a child attending a higher grade.


I need to enroll a new child into BVSD schools and I have other children already attending BVSD.  Do I need to fill out a new application for the new student?

Yes.  Any new student that is enrolling will need to have an online enrollment application submitted for them along with current verification documentation.  A new student cannot be enrolled by being added via your family's Annual Data Update (ADU) process.


I applied for my child to attend a school via open enrollment, does that mean my child is already enrolled to the requested school?

No.  Open Enrollment is a separate application process of which a student cannot be enrolled to the requested school unless a seat is offered and the necessary steps are followed that are detailed on the Notification of Acceptance.  More information can be found on the BVSD Open Enrollment website.

*Note: A neighborhood school enrollment may be filled out while awaiting a response from Open Enrollment (in case the applicant is not offered a seat a their requested school(s). The applicant's waitlist position(s) will not be affected.  


How do I know if my student is enrolled?

You will receive an automatic email from our department confirming your child's enrollment approval after the enrollment has been processed.  At that time, your child's school is able to view their profile on our student information system.

If you do not receive a confirmation email, please check your email's SPAM/Junk folder first before contacting us for a status.


I have submitted an online enrollment application but have not heard back in a few days, what could delay the enrollment?

  • Insufficient documentation may have been uploaded by families - you would have received an email from our department requesting correction, etc.  Please check your email's SPAM/Junk folder first before contacting us for a status.
  • Safe School Reviews - state law requires each new 6th-12th grade student's previous school to be contacted by the new BVSD school to answer questions regarding the student.  Schools need a few days to make contact depending on the previous' school's availability.
  • Language Testing - if the student needs to be tested for language purposes; a professional from our BVSD Language Development Department will contact you.  Any new student indicating any other language spoken in the home on the enrollment application is subject to be evaluated.

If neither of the above describe your applicant's enrollment, please contact our Student Enrollment Department at enrollment.helpdesk@bvsd.org for grades KG-8th.  If your child is of high school age, please contact the high school's Registrar for an update/troubleshoot.  Please be most patient with this process during our busiest time, late July into late August, when hundreds of applications are submitted at once.


What is an Infinite Campus Parent Portal?  How can I activate my account?

First time BVSD parents should know that we use Infinite Campus as a student data software.  Infinite Campus Parent Portals are used to view student grades, attendance, health information and applications such as the Free & Reduced Lunch Application and the Open Enrollment application.  Activating an account requires an activation key per parent/guardian to activate their account.  An activation key is generated once the student is enrolled in our student data system.  If a new student is starting in the Fall, the key is available after August 1st.  School office professionals assist families with activating parent accounts or the Student Enrollment Department can assist in the event that the schools are closed.


What do I do if the child I am enrolling is eligible for special education services?

Once the student is enrolled, you may send the documentation supporting the child's eligibility for special education directly to the child's school for review.  There is not an option to upload the documentation on the online registration.


What happens if my family's household address changes (we move)?

You may submit a BVSD Change of Address form directly to the Registrar at your child's school (just one school if your children attend several) along with a current proof of residence (see the "what you will need" section above for a detailed list of acceptable proof).  If the household address remains within our BVSD attendance boundaries, the child's enrollment will automatically be changed from the previous neighborhood school to reflect the new neighborhood school.

If the household address changes after the current school year has begun, the family may choose to have the child finish out the school year at the previous school and begin attending the new neighborhood school in the Fall of the following school year. 

*Note: If your child attends a school via Open Enrollment or Administrative Transfer, please see the Frequently Asked Questions section for either type of enrollment for household moving scenarios as it does differ from the above. 


How do I withdraw my student from BVSD?

You may submit a Notification of Withdrawal (one per student) directly to your child's school's Registrar. Our BVSD Student Enrollment Department can assist in the event that the schools are closed.

The student attended Preschool at University Hill Elementary School, Pioneer Elementary School or Community Montessori School and your family's household address has not changed since the last enrollment.  Our department will "roll" the student's enrollment up to Kindergarten at the same school for you. 
  2. The student attended a BVSD Preschool at your household's neighborhood school (via Special Education or Tuition-based).  Our department will "roll" the student's enrollment up to Kindergarten at the same school for you. 
  3. The student attended Preschool at a neighborhood school (via Special Education or Tuition-based) not within the same attendance area of where the child's household resides.  Our department will "roll" the student's enrollment up to Kindergarten at the household address' neighborhood school for you.
