FINAL FORMS

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

Final Laptop Pickup Date 8/9 High School Laptop Pickup

Laptops are ready for pickup for high school students. If your student plans to take the device home, you are required to pay the annual insurance premium. We have a new process this year for signing laptop agreements. We ask that each family sign up for Final Forms and complete the laptop agreement forms electronically. To save time and to insure that your device is ready upon pickup, please schedule a pickup date and complete the online agreement forms with Final Forms prior to picking up your student’s laptop. If you are unable to create an account or have issues completing the forms, we can assist you in the High School Auditeria during pickup hours. For further instructions and to view pickup dates/times, please see the link below.
