Kindergarten Registration 2019-2020

Welcome to Bulloch County Schools. Our school system will host its main Kindergarten Registration for the 2019-2020  school year in May 2019.  We encourage you to register your child during this time.


Please Note: If your child is enrolled in a Bulloch County Schools Pre-Kindergarten classroom, You do not need to register your child for kindergarten unless your child will be attending a different school than where he/she attended Pre-kindergarten.


How do I know if my child is eligible for Kindergarten?

In accordance with state guidelines, a child is eligible to attend Kindergarten in Bulloch County if he/she will be five-years-old by September 1, 2019, and the legal, custodial parents/guardians are residents of Bulloch County.


What do I need to bring with me to Kindergarten Registration?

For your convenience, a Registration Checklist of Required Documents is available on this website. It will help you gather the appropriate forms of identification for you and your child. Falsification of any information or document required for residency verification or the use of the address of another person without actually residing there may result in the following: a.) revocation of student enrollment, b.) being held liable to reimburse the district for expenses incurred to educate student(s), c.) civil action for fraud, negligent misrepresentation and negligence.


When do I register my child?

You may register your child for kindergarten anytime during the advertised Kindergarten Registration period or there after.  Elementary school offices are open 7:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. To ensure your child has the best first-day experience possible, please register your child before the first day of school, which is August 1, 2019


Where do I register my child?

Registration must be done at the school where you are zoned for attendance. Students are assigned to a school by their custodial parent or legal guardian's residence address. The legal custodial parent/guardian must accompany children to register for school. Parents and guardians may pick up and return registration packets at their zoned elementary school  During this time, you may also schedule an appointment for your child to be evaluated.


My child is enrolled in Bulloch County Schools’ Pre-Kindergarten Program. Do I still register my child for Kindergarten?

If your child is enrolled in a Bulloch County Schools Pre-Kindergarten classroom, you do not need to register your child for kindergarten, unless your child will be attending a different school than where he/she now attends pre-k.


Once I register my child, may I transfer him/her to another elementary school in the district?

Once a child is registered for Kindergarten, the school system will not process transfer requests for Kindergarten openings until 10 school days after the first day of school. If a student is already enrolled in a Bulloch County school and changes residences within the county at any time during the year, the parent/guardian must complete an Address Verification Form.  Schools must have this form before changing any addresses on a student.


What if I am unable to register my child during Kindergarten Registration week?

If you are unable to register during our main Kindergarten Registration, our elementary school offices are open Monday – Friday, through the second week of June, and reopen the third week of July, from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. We encourage you to register your child prior to the first day of school, which is August 1, 2019.
