Returning Students PowerSchool Enrollment 2022-23

A PowerSchool parent portal account is necessary to complete the forms and should only be completed by the parent/guardian. If you do not have a PowerSchool parent portal account, please contact our school's registrar for instructions. Parent portal login information should not be shared with students, as all students have their own student login account.
Allow approximately 10-15 minutes per child to complete the process from start to finish. Make sure all contact information is up-to-date to receive information and communication regarding your child.
Be prepared to upload and/or provide the following documents:
  • Proof of Residency (required every year for all in-district students, proof of resdiency does not apply for tuition students):
    • If you Own within District: City of Buford Bill
    • If you Rent within District: Entire Lease Agreement
    • If you Live w/ Someone within District: Email our registrar for official form (requires notarization). 
            All "lives with" affidavits will be verified by the BCSS resource officers.
  • Driver’s License
  • Vehicle License Plate Number
  • Custody/Legal Guardianship Documentation (if applicable)
The deadline for completing Annual Enrollment for Returning Students is July 1, 2022.

Do I have to answer all the questions?
Some questions are marked "Required" and must be completed in order to submit your form.

You can take a picture using your cell phone and upload it online for the required documentation.
What if I make a mistake?
If you would like to make a change, click on the underlined field or click “Previous” to return to a previous page.
I’ve completed the form, now what?
When you have finished entering your information, click “Submit.” This will send all of the information you’ve entered to the school. If you cannot click on this button, you will need to make sure that you have answered all required questions.
What if I have more than one student at Buford City School?
Do I need to do this for each child? Yes, because you’ll need to provide information that is specific for each child. We recommend that you submit one Intent to Return in August 2022 and then start another – this will allow you to “snap over” shared family information, which will save you time.
Help! I’m having technical difficulties.
For technical support — not including issues with passwords or usernames — visit our PowerSchool Community help center or click “Help” or “Contact Us” from any form page.
I can’t remember my login for the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
If you aren’t able to retrieve your login credentials using the “Having trouble signing in?” link on the Sign In page, please contact our school registrar directly for assistance logging into the Parent Portal.
