Please note that you will be asked to do this for each student that you have enrolled in Pasco County Schools.
- You will be able to update records as needed by typing the information into the provided fields. This information will be reviewed by school staff prior to updating the information in the system. Please note that some changes will require further documentation depending upon the specific change that is submitted to the student records.
- If the information is correct and does not need to be changed, then you will have an option to indicate that as well and the records will remain unchanged in myStudent.
- After clicking on the “Submit and Finish” button you will see a screen thanking you for completing this process and providing you with a link back to the Student Portal. Please click on the link to return to the portal and complete the same process for all of your other students.
