Senior Transcript Information
Seniors- you may now request official transcripts be sent to colleges and universities through a service called Parchment. BISD is using Parchment during the COVID-19 shutdown. You should receive an email with instructions in your BISD email account, or you can go directly to the parchment website by clicking https://www.parchment.com/u/registration/22496/account or the title above. Those needing to send official transcripts after senior year concludes need to wait until at least 5/24/20 to request these. An email will go out to students once final transcripts are ready and can be requested.
If you have any questions about Parchment, please contact Lead Counselor, Cindy Larson at firstname.lastname@example.org
BHS asks that you not request a transcript simply to view. All transcripts can be viewed in Skyward, located in the same place that you find your report cards. Please reserve Parchment requests for college admissions purposes. BHS will not fulfill requests to view.
To send a final transcript to colleges and universities after semester 2 has ended please make sure to select "Hold for Grades".

Here are some things our students can do to prepare for the transition to online instruction:
