Back-to-School Forms and Fees

Back-to-School Forms

New and Returning Students Grades K-12

Back-to-school forms for the 2019-2020 school year are available in the PowerSchool Parent Portal by clicking on the eCollect Forms link in the left navigation menu. Due to the PowerSchool system update that was completed this summer, parents/guardians for all new and returning students will need to access the forms in PowerSchool to verify and update important student information.  These forms involve parent/guardian contacts, emergency contacts, medical history and all technology forms associated with students’ school-issued devices. 

If you are a parent/guardian of a student in grades 4 through 12, please complete these forms before your student’s device pickup event at Hastings Middle School. 

If you are a parent/guardian of a student in kindergarten through grade 3, please complete these forms before the first day of school.
 
Please follow the following steps to complete these forms:
  1. Log in to your PowerSchool parent account. If you need help with your log-in information, or you have not set up a PowerSchool parent account, please contact backtoschool@uaschools.org.
  2. Once you are logged in to your PowerSchool parent account, select the “eCollect Forms” link in the left navigation column. 
  3. Individually select and verify or complete ALL of the required forms. Be sure to click the Submit button at the bottom of each form to save your work.
  4. If you have multiple students associated with your PowerSchool parent account, please click on each student in the tabs at the top of the webpage and verify or complete ALL of the required forms for each of your students.

Please note that this year these forms include the optional Technology Protection Plan for students in grades 4-12. If you select to purchase this optional protection plan for your student, please pay the $25 fee in SPS EZpay when you log in to pay your student’s fees. 

If you have any questions about the back-to-school forms or accessing the PowerSchool Parent Portal, please contact backtoschool@uaschools.org

Device Collection and iPad Distribution

New and Returning Students Grades 4-12

Device collection and iPad distribution events for students in grades 4-12 will be held July 31-August 9 at Hastings Middle School, 1850 Hastings Lane. 

At these events, students and their parents/guardians will:
  • Turn in their old laptop and charger if they had not done so in May (returning students only);
  • Verify the completion of back-to-school technology forms;
  • Verify the payment of the optional Technology Protection Plan fee ($25), if desired; and
  • Set up their new iPads and rotate through stations led by student mentors on tools and processes for iPads in the classroom.

Please visit our scheduling website to select a time slot for your student(s) and a parent/guardian to attend. Any student in grades 4-12 who is unable to attend will receive their school-issued device within a week of the start of the school year.

Students in kindergarten through grade 3 do not need to schedule a device collection/pickup appointment. They will receive their school-issued devices in their classroom within a week of the start of the school year. 

If you have any scheduling questions, please contact familytechhelp@uaschools.org.
