2024-2025 Annual Update for Current Students

Every year, parents/guardians are asked to review and update household information, emergency contacts, and waivers and releases for their students. You can now complete your annual student update online through your Alma Start account. All parents and guardians of students who attend SSSD schools must complete the Annual Update by May 30 to update their proof of residency.

What to Expect

To ensure that we have accurate and up-to-date information on file, please take 15-20 minutes to complete the Annual Student Update. This update will require you to input and review information about your household members, emergency contacts, and student data. Please ensure that all information is entered correctly. 

Required Documentation for the Annual Student Update

The following documents must be uploaded during the online Annual Student Update. All electronic documents must be legible. If you are not able to upload documents, you will need to provide a copy of these documents to your child’s school office before your Student Update can be approved.

  1. Proof of Residency - The proof of residence must be dated within 3 months of the update, must be in the name of the parent, guardian or student, and must show a physical address within the school district boundaries. One of the following documents will be required to be uploaded during the verification process:

  2. Your Child’s Immunization Records and/or Waiver- Please update immunization records when applicable. Parents/guardians seeking non‐medical exemptions for students in kindergarten through 12th grade must submit non‐medical exemption forms each new school year.
