A: NO for students entering grades 1-12, you will not need to complete an annual update until the following school year. All required information has already been collected as part of the New Student Registration form.  New registrants, will automatically be associated with your OnCourse Connect account and they will not require an annual enrollment update for the upcoming school year.  If your new registrant,  is not associated with your OnCourse Connect account, along with your returning students, please email parent.portal@sayrevillek12.net so that we can merge all of your students into one OnCourse Connect account.

For students entering grades PreK and Kindergarten if you completed a new student registration prior to July 1 you will be required to perform an annual enrollment update during the summer months to ensure that we have updated information on file.  If you complete a new registration after July 1 you will not be required to complete an annual enrollment update until the following school year. 

 

Q: I am a student. Can I complete the annual enrollment update?
A: No. The annual enrollment update is only available to guardian accounts for OnCourse Connect and it is designed to be completed by a parent/guardian.  If your parent/guardian has not completed the enrollment update, you will not be able to access your schedule and/or bus information via OnCourse Connect.

If you are a student entering the middle school for the first time , your district computer login will be activated in mid to late August as a student OnCourse Connect account, before student schedules and bus routes are released.  This account will only display your schedule and/or bus information if your parent/guardian has completed the annual enrollment update. All returning middle and high school students should already have an active OnCourse Connect account. 

 

Q: I completed the annual enrollment update, but I am not able to access OnCourse Connect?
A: While there could be a technical reason for this, it is most likely because your child’s school has put a block on the account.  This could be for reasons such as outstanding fines or schoolbooks that have not been returned.  Please contact parent.portal@sayrevillek12.net and you will be directed to the appropriate person to resolve any outstanding situations that might be causing a block on your account.
