CARDINAL UPDATE

Hello Brodhead Families: 7/22/2021

I hope all is well with you and your family. This update contains information about our Online Registration Process. This is still a fairly new process for us at Brodhead, but it is part of our Skyward Student Management Program and will be the expected way for all enrollment in our District. We prefer that all parents/guardians register online rather than in person. If you have difficulties, please contact one of the secretaries in the building your child will be attending.

On-line Registration:
• The window for online registration will be August 2-12.
• All new students are required to register in person.
• In-person registration will be held August 9-12; If you do not have access to a computer or the Internet, we will have a bank of computers available at each school and our tutorials printed off and available. We prefer that you complete the process online, but if you have issues or need support to complete the process in-person, you may still do so.
• In order to register, each family must have a Skyward username and password. When you get to the login screen and have forgotten your username and/or password, simply click on the “Forgot your Login/Password” and that information will be sent to the email address you enter. If you don’t have an email address on file, you will need to contact the school your child will be attending, and they can help you.
• If you rely on Mr. Novy’s regular Cardinal Updates, make sure your email and cell phone numbers are listed correctly. When a message is sent out, it will only go to the first email and first cell phone listed in Skyward. When registering, please make sure this information is in correctly.
• The Brodhead School District offers a voluntary payment service called eFunds for Schools. This program offers various options for parents/guardians who choose to make payments online and is extremely user friendly. Here is a brief eFunds Video Walkthrough if you wish to learn more about the process.

The "e-Funds for Schools" electronic payment service is provided to the school by a third-party service provider. The service provider has a nominal fee for their service. There is a $1.25 transaction convenience fee for each electronic checking payment that you make. For payments made by credit or debit card, there is a convenience fee of $2.85 per each $100 increment in the transaction. When you set up your account, please review your options carefully.

We prefer that parents use this option, but since there is a small cost, you may still mail or drop off payments as well.
