All Students - Step 1: Data Confirmation Process (July 31-August 29)

Data Confirmation window opens July 31st to August 29th. Please note: yellow information letters have July 9th as the first day for data confirmation. That is incorrect: Data Confirmation window will open on July 31st.

Confirmacion en linea estara disponible del 31 de julio al 29 de agosto.

Please follow the steps below to complete the Data Confirmation process and to prepare your forms and transactions for Leopard Run Registration.

Step A - Parent Portal Account

If you already have an active Parent Portal Account, proceed to the next step. If you do not already have a Parent Portal Account, create an SVUSD Parent Portal Account through the SVUSD Family Portal. An SVUSD Parent Portal Account (not a Student Account) is required to register. (See Step 1 below.) All Data Confirmation paperwork will be completed on-line and brought to Leopard Run.

NOTE: it is common for parents to use the Family Portal with a STUDENT account unknowingly, but they need to use their PARENT account instead of a student account for Data Confirmation.

How do I know if I have a Parent account in Family Portal? When logged into your Family Portal account, go to the Profile tab. Check the Linked Portal Account email area for the email and type of account. Type P is Parent account and Type S is a student account.

Step B - Data Confirmation (opens July 9)

Complete DATA CONFIRMATION. Go to the AERIES Family Portal. Follow all prompts and tabs within the Data Confirmation pages to confirm or correct your student's data. (Use Helpful Screenshot Instructions if needed.) In the Data Confirmation window, you will need to do the following:

  1. Review and update demographic and emergency contacts and medical information
  2. Print and sign the required forms
  3. Return to parent portal to complete the data confirmation process
