The online ADU system replaced the paper registration process in BVSD. The ADU allows families to review the current data we have for your student(s) and household. Families are able to request changes and updates if needed. This process also allows families to electronically complete and submit the Parent/Student Sign-Off Sheet from the Student Rights and Responsibilities Guide.  Schools may have other site-specific forms to complete later.
