Family Access - Changing your Publication Permission Preferences
Hello Parents and Guardians,
The Fond du Lac School District has made it easier for parents and guardians to update their Publication preferences in terms of what information is released about their children to the media, military, outside groups and via District publications. Preferences for use in five distinct areas (Military, District, Higher Ed, Local, and Public) can be updated at any time via Skyward Family Access, the same place you check for grades, lunch account balances and attendance among other things.
To make updating as simple as possible, we have created a video tutorial (click here) as well as provided a pdf document (available by clicking below) that shows the step-by-step process for making these types of updates.
Should you have any questions, please contact your school principal.
