Do we need to pay the Chromebook fee again this year?

Yes. Students will not be able to pick up a new Chromebook this year until the $20 fee is paid. (This fee may be waived for students with free/reduced lunch status.)

Big picture

Can I do any of this online from home?

Yes -- and avoid lines at the same time! If you have an active ParentVue account, and if you have an active Online Payment account, you can pay past fees, purchase a yearbook, purchase an ASB sticker, or pay Chromebook insurance from home (see school website for link to the payment system). If you haven’t activated your ParentVue account, we will send you information about how to do this in the near future. We also ask that you update your Student Enrollment information online (any changes in phone number, email address, emergency contact info, etc). If you need help accessing the payment system, please contact the school. You can also read additional information at the following link: Online Payment

Can I pay for everything with just one check (if I choose to pay at Wildcat Day?)

First, remember that bookkeepers cannot accept credit cards as a form of payment. Credit cards can only be used with the online system, and only for items that are offered online. If you plan to deposit money in the meal plan, purchase Westview gear, or buy a Grad Night ticket, you will need to come with multiple checks. Of course, you may also use cash.

Can I take my school ID with a silly hair style and a costume?


No. Some students, seniors in particular, want to take a silly school ID picture because they know a formal senior picture will be put in the yearbook. While this may sound like a reasonable request, we cannot allow students to do this. School ID pictures are part of our student information database, and we need to be able to identify students based on these pictures. We need pictures to accurately represent the appearance of students for safety reasons. There are no exceptions to this policy. Students may not hold props in the photos.

Can I purchase a parking pass from home or during Wildcat Day?

No. Students will still be assigned specific parking spaces, and seniors with a valid driver’s license will be given the first opportunity to submit an application for a spot for $20 the first week of school during lunches (September 4 - 6). The form can be found at the following link: Westview High School Parking Agreement


Juniors with a valid driver’s license may request to be part of a parking lottery after Seniors have been assigned their spots (possibly the 2nd week of school). Students will also be asked to provide vehicle make/model/license plate information for any car they may park on campus. On September 16, all seniors must begin parking in their assigned spot, and juniors will be contacted if they were selected for a parking spot through our lottery process. We believe this is the most fair method to support seniors in having the first priority and giving all juniors the same opportunity to compete for a parking space. Juniors and Seniors may continue to add their name to the lottery list over the course of the year. Anytime a parking space becomes available, a name will be chosen through a lottery. No parking passes will be available to sophomores. More information can be found at the following link: 2019-20

If I can’t come to Wildcat Day because of work or vacation plans, can I get my ID card and pay any fees at another time?

Yes. Pictures may be taken Monday, September 16th, 7:30am-2:00pm in the library. If you purchase an ASB sticker online, just bring the receipt with you when you get your ID picture taken. Fees can be paid online or by visiting our Bookkeeper during school hours.

How would I know if I have overdue books that must be returned or paid for?

All students and parents can access their account through the following link: Library Information

These fees follow students each year, so please resolve this issue right away!

When do I get my class schedule for next year?

It takes all summer to build schedules for 2,400 students. Students should be able to look at StudentVue by August 20 (at the latest) to see their schedules. In special cases, a request for schedule correction form may be submitted anytime between August 21 - September 16 for the following reasons:

  • A class needed for graduation is not in the schedule

  • A class that was already taken, or a class where the prerequisite has not yet been taken, is in the schedule

  • There is a gap in the schedule (for example, no period 3 class)

This process is intended to correct mistakes. It is not intended to address a student changing his or her mind about a class that was previously requested. Students should only submit ONE request for correction form if a correction is necessary, and they should continue to monitor StudentVue to see if the correction request was approved or denied. If StudentVue doesn’t change, then the request was denied.

What if I want a locker?

Lockers will be assigned to all freshman and sophomores. Juniors and seniors can request a locker by filling out this form. Locker information can be viewed thru StudentVue.

Online Enrollment Verification

Online Enrollment Verification is available online, starting August15.

BSD parents and guardians have the ability to verify their child(ren)'s enrollment information through the parent portal, ParentVUE. This annual paper process was formerly a part of the Back to School packet that was brought home to parents/guardians to review, update and return to the office. Verification of enrollments can now be completed online each year. Feel free to watch a helpful video to help you through the process.


For more information, including FAQ’s, and helpful videos, please visit the Online Registration webpage.

AVID Volunteer Tutors Needed for the 2019-2020 School Year

AVID Volunteers are needed in all secondary schools (middle schools, options schools and high schools).



AVID=Advancement Via Individual Determination

  • AVID volunteers (we call them 'tutors') work with small groups of students under the supervision of a teacher.
  • Volunteers are trained to use specific strategies that help develop students’ critical thinking, literacy, and math skills.
  • Volunteers are needed mainly on Tuesdays & Thursdays, and times vary depending on the school and volunteer's availability.
  • Training and ongoing support provided.
  • Community or Parent Volunteer Application and Background Check required.
