Student Registration FAQ
Barrow County School students will not need to be registered if they are staying in the same BCSS zone.
No. If your child was selected in the lottery last year, and has a current enrollment at a Barrow County School in a Pre-K class, you do not need to register for Kindergarten. If your child is attending a preschool, such as Sikes, or other childcare facility, then yes, you do need to register for Kindergarten.
No, you don’t need to register again, however, we may need additional documents for your child. If so, you will be notified of which document(s) is/are needed, along with a deadline to provide. Examples: an up to date Georgia immunization form, completed 3300 form for Hearing/Vision/Dental/Nutrition screening.
Yes. If you don’t have the 3300 form, which is the hearing/vision/dental/nutrition screening form, you can still enroll your child for school. If this is, or will be, the first time your child is attending a public school in Georgia, we can give you a provisional enrollment for the missing form and you will be given a deadline to turn it in. If you are registering a Kindergarten or Pre-K student for fall enrollment, please know that the screenings must have been completed within one year of the child starting a Georgia school for the first time. Your doctor can conduct ALL 4 screenings, including the dental section.
You can take your child’s out of state immunizations to any Georgia health department, or your Georgia physician to have them transferred to the GA 3231 form.
It depends on the situation:
- Does the person you live with OWN the home? If so, then you can download the Multi-Family Form from our Pre-registration site. The form needs to be completed by the person that owns the home, and they must also provide a current UTILITY bill in their name. You can then upload both forms during pre-registration.
- Does the person you live with RENT? If so, then you will need to download the Rental Certificate. The form needs to be completed by the landlord. You can then upload the form during pre-registration. The landlord doesn’t need to provide a utility bill with this form.
What if I moved within Barrow County and need to transfer schools?
For students currently enrolled in BCSS who've moved within the county and need to transfer to a different Barrow County school, please fill out the forms linked below and follow the steps to upload current proof of residency and photo ID.
You can always create a new username and password to complete the pre-registration for the new student.
Once you’ve logged in, simply select ADD NEW to add a new student. You can then add specific information for the new student you are registering. This won’t affect the other children already enrolled in school. OR if you’re more comfortable with creating a new username and password, you can do that to pre-register a new child.
Some banks offer free notarization if you have an account. If you can't find anyone to notarize your form, you can check with the school registrar or the central office. Please remember, if your form requires signatures from more than one person, both have to be present and provide identification prior to signing.
Our registration staff will review your entry as close to the scheduled time as possible. YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL CONFIRMING YOUR CHILD'S ENROLLMENT. We will only call you at that time, if we have a problem or question about your entry. It’s very important to upload all of the documents prior to scheduling the review. Failure to do so may cause a delay in enrolling and the need for you to reschedule.
No. Your child will not have an enrollment until all of the documents have been uploaded. Please be sure to check our website for required documentation.
