Beginning of Year Forms

As an edited version of a previous form, parents may see completed by Beginning of Year forms when it is not actually completed. If you see the screen below: Click "Mark Beginning of Year Forms as not completed and make changes,"

You may also need to click, "Mark as not completed and make changes" in the Acknowledgement of Handbook form to sign. Screenshot below. 

You can then continue through the list as pictured in the tutorial below.

Our apologies for the confusion.
