Annual Back-to-School Registration for 2017-2018


AUSD uses Back-to-School Registration every year to confirm that a student will be attending a district school in the upcoming school year. The registration also gives parent/guardians a chance to update emergency contacts, acknowledge annual authorizations, and review the district’s policies. We ask that parent/guardians complete the registration via our InfoSnap online system as soon as possible.

To get started, you will need your student’s unique 2017-18 SnapCode. We will send these out by email starting July 26. (If we don’t have a valid email, we will send the SnapCode to you via postal mail.) If you do not receive this information by August 7, please contact your student’s school site directly for assistance. The easiest way to access registration is to click the snapcode link in the email. If you receive a letter or need to log back into InfoSnap click here:

Class of 2017 seniors visited their Ruby Bridges Elementary and offered words of wisdom and advice to fourth and fifth graders.

Our former students are graduates of Alameda High, ASTI High, Encinal High, and Island High School.

They will be attending various Peralta Colleges, UCs, CSUs, University of Oregon, Yale, and joining branches of the military.  We are so proud of all our former students and their hard work.  We look forward to seeing what our future students will accomplish!
