Back Together 304: Family Selection Reminder & Updated FAQs
Back Together New Resources Thumbnail
July 23, 2020
This week, we opened the window for families to select the Back Together 304 learning model that works best for their families. We are asking families to complete these steps (which are also provided below and on our website for your convenience) by 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, July 28. Students whose families do not complete this process by July 28 will be placed in the In-Person Learning setting. This timeframe is necessary so that we can effectively facilitate staffing, schedules, and learning opportunities, just to name a few. If you have not yet selected the learning model for your student in grades K-12, we ask that you follow these steps:

How to Select Your Child's Learning Option (Complete this process for each student in grades K-12) 

1. Log onto Home Access Center (HAC) by visiting: 
2. From the Registration page, choose "Update Registration" 
3. To start, click "*** Click here for Data Verification ***" 
4. Review your child's general information and click "Next Section >>>" 
5. A section will appear with two key considerations regarding the start of the 2020-21 school year that must be completed:  

  • Select which learning setting you want your child to experience: In-Person Learning or Online-Only Learning. 
  • Is District Transportation required? (Applies to In-Person Learning students). 

6. After making your selections, click "Save Section" and then "Next Section >>>" 
7. Review the information you provided.  If all looks accurate, check the "I Agree" box and then click "Submit" to complete the process.

After completing these steps, you will receive an automatic email confirming receipt of your submission. You also will receive a second email, at a later date, once the District has recorded your response.
