LISD provides certain forms to be completed each year. Listed below are some things you need to be aware of regarding forms:
> Some of the forms may have a defined time period to fill these out online. The link will be removed when that period closes.
> For several forms, once filled out, only need to be reviewed and edited (if needed) each year.
> The forms process requires you to mark each form completed as your digital signature to the content of the forms. This has to be completed each year and will be monitored by the campus.
> After marking a form completed, you can open the form for editing. After saving, you will need to mark it completed and perform the Final Submission step again as well.
> Only members of the 1st Family of the student can fill out forms. If you need to make changes to your family information, please contact the campus.

Skyward provides an individual account for each parent connected to each of your students. There is no means for parents to create their own account.

To request a Password reset link and username be sent to you by email:

1. Access the LISD Home Page, select the Parent Tab and click on the Skyward Family Access link.

2. On the resulting page, choose the Family Access login link at the top of the announcement area.

3. On the login page, choose:"Forgot your Login/Password?" Link.

4, The system will ask for a username or email address to send the reset link to. NOTE: This is going to send to the email address in our system for you. If that was never entered or has not been updated, you will not receive the email.

5. When you receive the email, follow the instructions and reset your password. The email will also have your username listed in it.

NOTE: if more than one person shares an email address you will receive multiple emails. Students with your email address will not allow for the resetting of the password.

If you do not receive the email or the link does not work as expected, please contact the campus and request a new password. At that time, have them check the email address for accuracy. NOTE: The campus will likely require proof of identity to perform this for you. They are required to secure student information to the best of their ability for your student's protection.
