Returning Student Information Update

Parents and guardians of all BTCS students must complete the Returning Student Information Update online form each school year. A parent/guardian of each student should have received an email on July 14 with the information needed to complete the process. Information will also be mailed to each student's home the week of July 19. Like the email, the letter will also contain information specific to your child's account log in information.

This process replaces many of the paper forms that were once sent home at the beginning of each school year. All BTCS parents/guardians can complete this process from any computer that has an internet connection. Included in this student information update is information that is required of EVERY student by the state and federal government. Also, by completing this process we will have the most up-to-date information on file in case of emergencies. Therefore, parents of ALL students should complete this process. Parents will use the PowerSchool Parent Portal to access the Returning Student Information Update form. PARENTS MUST USE THE PARENT ACCOUNT, NOT THE STUDENT'S ACCOUNT TO PERFORM THIS TASK.

If your child has a fine that your student incurred last school year, you can pay that fine using this process. A "fine" is different than the Technology Usage Fee. We ask that students in grades 4-12 pay (or select a payment method for) the $50 technology usage fee.

Elementary and middle school parents can also pay their school's activity fee online this year. You will be given the opportunity to do so near the end of the process. 


Online School Enrollment 2021-2022 School Year

Tennessee Online Public School (TOPS) is the district's only online option for the 2021-2022 school year. If planning to enroll in TOPS, you do not need to complete the returning student registration. You must apply to TOPS online. For more information or to apply, visit

How do I get started?

The best way is to begin from the personalized email you received on July 14, 2021. However, if you do not have that as a starting point, visit and login. From the Parent Portal:

  1. Select the student you wish to register along the top left.
  2. Select the Returning Student Information Update link in the lower left corner.
  3. Enter your child's birthdate for confirmation.
  4. Begin completing the form.

I can’t remember my login for the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
If you have an existing parent account, it has not changed. If you are not able to retrieve your login credentials using the "Having trouble signing in?" link on the Sign-In page, please contact your school directly for assistance logging in to the Parent Portal.

Do I have to answer all the questions?
Questions marked with "required" note are required. 

What if I make a mistake?
If you would like to make a change prior to submitting the form, you can navigate back to the page using the menu on the left. If you have already submitted the form, you will need to contact your child's school so they can make the changes for you.

I’ve completed the form, now what?
Once you have finished entering your information, click “Submit.”  This will send all of the information you’ve entered to the school. If you cannot click on this button, you will need to make sure that you have answered all required questions.

What if I have more than one child in the district? Do I need to do this for each child?
Yes, you will need to provide information that is specific to each child. We recommend that you complete and submit one form and then start another. This will allow you to “snap” (or share) selected family information, which saves you time.

Help! I’m on the form, and I’m having technical difficulties.
For technical support, visit our PowerSchool Community help center, or click “Help” from any form page, or contact your child's school.
