Annual Registration – Enrolled Students

Prior to the beginning of each school year in the Santa Barbara Unified School District, parents and guardians of students are required to complete the registration process for their children.  In families with multiple children, registration must be completed for each child individually. In addition to the District forms required by law, each school may require site-specific forms and procedures.

  1. Complete the steps on the Aeries Portal site.  The Aeries Portal refers to the online registration process as the Data Confirmation process.
    • When you first log in, you will be prompted to complete the Data Confirmation (registration) process for each student before you can view that student’s records.  Click on the link to start the registration process
    • You will have an opportunity to complete the online registration process for each student, if you have multiple students already enrolled in the District.  To view a different student, go to Change Student in the upper-right of the Portal screen after logging in.
    • Once you’ve completed the registration process, if you would like to make additional changes, go to  Student Info Data Confirmation.
  2. In addition, you will need to complete school forms, which you can find here. 
  3. Sign the pre-populated Emergency Card that you printed from the site and all SBCA forms. Bring the forms to SBCA on July 6, 2018, or July 9, 2018
Santa Barbara Unified Open Enrollment ends on January 18, 2019.
