A BIG Thank You to our parents who jumped out first thing to fill out their Skyward Family Access registration forms for Returning Students in 2022! This day has not gone without some glitches, but overall it has been a success! We would like to address some of our most popular requests and questions that came about today: 🐾 If you have not received an email from Alba-Golden Skyward, please check your spam filter! Some emails are getting stopped there. If you do not find it in your spam filter, please call us during school hours (8:00-4:00) so that we can regenerate your email. Please call Stacy Rolen at (903) 768-2472 X1109 or your campus secretary. 🐾 At this time, Alba-Golden ISD does not offer the Skyward app. It will be coming soon - but it is not meant for registering students (which is our main focus at this time). 🐾 Returning Student Registration may be done on any device that offers the internet (computer, tablet, or phone) using your web browser. For those families that do not have the internet at home, we will be available on Monday and Tuesday, August 1st & 2nd, in the AGISD cafeteria - from 8:00-9:00am and from 5:00-7:00pm - to assist you in person. It will still have to be accomplished online, but we will have devices and internet service available for you. Thank you all for your patience and flexibility as we navigate this new path. We are excited for the great things it will bring to our district! If you have further questions, please call (903) 768-2472 X1109.

Update Day 1
Hello A-G families and friends! We just wanted to give you a little heads up of a change that is coming to our district. Beginning the 2022-2023 school year, we will be using a different student information system. What you have known as the "Ascender Parent Portal" will now be replaced by "Skyward Family Access". As always, change can bring a challenge - BUT - Skyward is proving to be MUCH more user friendly, and we will be here to get you through it! We need EVERY family to be looking for an email coming your way. You should receive it THIS WEEK! Please follow the link in your email to get your student(s) registered for the new year. It will be essential that your student is registered online before they will be registered in a teacher's class or given a schedule for the 2022-2023 school year. If you do not receive an email this week (July 25-28), please contact your child's campus secretary on Monday, August 1st, at (903) 768-2472 to be sure that we have your email on file. Thank you for your assistance!
