Annual Family Update

If you have not registered for the 2020-21 school year, you can take part in Annual Family Update, DPS’ online registration process. Or, contact your school directly for registration information.

To take part in Annual Family Update, first make sure you have an active Parent Portal account at myportal.dpsk12.org. After you sign into Parent Portal, click on “See All Apps,” then click on “Annual Family Update” to complete the process. Annual Family Update can only be completed by the parent/guardian listed in the primary household of the student record.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • During Annual Family Update, families will be able to officially enroll their student in either in-person learning or a virtual program through December 2020. If you would like your student to return to in-person learning as soon as it’s available, please select the in-person learning option. If you’re certain that you won’t feel comfortable having your student participate in in-person learning for the fall semester (through December 2020), please select the 100% virtual learning option. Please note there is not a remote-learning program for district-run early childhood education (ECE) students. Families who enroll in the virtual program will keep their enrollment spot in their home school.
  • Parent/guardians can update contact information and preferences, upload proof of address for address changes, add or remove emergency contacts, provide information about health conditions and medications, upload immunization documentation, and review and sign policies and releases.
  • The following information cannot be updated online during Annual Family Update:
    • Name changes
    • Address changes (parents/guardians can check the “change of address” box in the Annual Family Update, and can upload a proof of address. The new address itself cannot be entered directly by the parent/guardian.)
    • Race/ethnicity (the school will need to be notified of any changes)
    • Removing guardians (this will need to be done with the school with the proper paperwork)

Any family with a currently enrolled DPS student and a Parent Portal account can take part. However, only the primary parent or guardian registered in Infinite Campus can complete Annual Family Update.
