Second Nine Weeks Commitment Form

The Second Nine Weeks Commitment Form is now available to complete online in Skyward

Family Access. Parents and guardians requesting to change your student’s participation in either At-Home Learning or In-Person Learning for the 2nd Nine Weeks grading period must complete the Second Nine Weeks Commitment Form.


The deadline for completing this commitment form is 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, September 29, 2020.


If you are not requesting to change the learning option for your student for the 2nd Nine Weeks, then you do not need to complete the commitment form. All students will be scheduled with the same learning option for 1st Nine Weeks and 2nd Nine Weeks if a Commitment Form is not submitted requesting a change.


Please note that adjustments in instructional delivery model selections across the district may impact teacher assignments and student schedules. Staff may need to shift to align with new instructional model choices. Therefore, even students who do not change instructional models could experience a change to their teacher(s), course availability or class schedule as teachers are assigned based on the numbers of students and course requests in each environment.


Elementary students making changes to their instructional delivery model selection may not be guaranteed to be assigned to their home campus based on staffing and grade level seat availability.


Primary Guardians/Parents will use their “parent” Skyward Family Access login to access the form. A primary guardian/parent must complete this from for each student that you are requesting to change the learning option.
