Simply share our ready-made PDF as an attachment to a brightwheel Message or upload it in Document Hub. For your program’s tax filing, use the Billing Transactions report or visit this handy resource hub for any tax questions you may have!

Save time preparing for the new year with bulk actions in brightwheel.

As children move rooms, graduate, and enroll for the new year, you can update multiple enrollment statuses and homeroom assignments at once. This can be done by navigating to an individual Room, selecting multiple students, and then updating their homerooms or statuses accordingly. ✅ You can also make bulk updates to your roster using the Roster Upload Tool.
