The Source & Online Student Data Verification

Do you have a Source Account?
(and if not, why you should)

Bailey Gatzert Parents/Guardians,

The district offers a terrific online option for parents/guardians to keep in touch with their student’s school progress. That option is called The Source and I want to encourage all families to open a Source account.

Some things I think you will find especially helpful when using The Source are: Attendance, Assessments, Library, and Student Data Verification (open Sept. 6-30).

In the information packet you receive the second week of school, you will get more information about the Source and how to sign up for it. Or read below and get started now!

Create a Source Account

The Source provides access to student record information such as attendance, assessment scores, library information, the student data verification form, and much more.

Student Data Verification (Sept. 6-30)

Gatzert Parent/Guardian,

The Seattle Public Schools online student data verification will be open the first day students attend school through September 30.

Areas you can update are:

  • Home address
  • Mailing address
  • Phone numbers
  • Parent contacts
  • Parent phone numbers
  • Parent addresses
  • Emergency contacts
  • Emergency contact phone numbers
  • Emergency contact addresses
  • Gender change
  • Legal name change
  • Preferred name change
  • No contact orders
  • Custody status
  • Doctor name and phone
  • Military family indicator
  • Life threatening health conditions

When you go to the Online Data Verification page, you will see what information we currently have and be able to delete incorrect or outdated information and input correct or new information.

  • Has your student developed a new health condition?
  • Do you have a new phone number or address? 
  • Is there an Emergency Contact listed you would like to delete?
  • Is there a new Emergency Contact you would like to add?

Keeping the above information correct and updated is important for the safety of your student while in school. This online option is the most efficient and reliable way to ensure no important information is left out.

Please log in to The Source to update and verify this information.
