Annual Back to School Registration

Welcome Back! Starting Wednesday, August 3, 2016, Alameda Unified School District's Annual Online Back to School Registration window powered by InfoSnap was opened.

Annual Back to School Registration is required for all returning students and those who enrolled between January and June 2016. During the registration process parents/guardians will have the opportunity to verify their student’s information, update emergency contacts, renew authorizations and review important district policies and procedures for the coming school year.

To get started you will need your student's unique 2016-17 snapcode which you should receive by mail or email starting the week of August 1st. If you do not receive this information by August 9th, 2016 please contact your student's school site directly. We ask that you wait until August 9th to allow time for the processing and delivery of mail.
