New Student Enrollment and Annual Update of Student Information:

We are very excited to announce that the Highland School District has partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service. FinalForms allows you to complete and sign enrollment, back-to-school and athletic participation forms for your students. The most exciting news is that FinalForms saves data from season-to-season and year-to-year, meaning that you will never need to enter the same information twice! FinalForms also pre-populates information wherever possible, for each of your students, saving you time.

You may review your data at any time to verify it is current. You will be required to sign your forms once per year and after any update.

We are asking that ALL parents use FinalForms.  Please register at:  and follow the prompts to create your account, create or assign your students and sign your forms.

Note: If your student is NEW to the district (kindergarteners and transfers), please be sure to click the “New to District” checkbox when registering your student.

Thank you for your assistance in streamlining our paperwork processes at Highland School District.
