Kindergarten Registration 2017-2018
Bulloch County Schools will host Kindergarten Registration for the 2017-2018 school year May 1-5, 2017, at each of our nine elementary schools. Parents and guardians may pick up registration packets at your zoned elementary school during normal office hours (7:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.). Parents/Guardians should return completed packets to their zoned elementary school by 3:00 p.m. on May 5. During this time, you may also schedule an appointment for your child to be evaluated.
Only a child's parent or legal guardian may register a child for school. A child being enrolled in kindergarten for the 2017-2018 school year must be five (5) years old by September 1, 2017.
Please Note: If your child is enrolled in a Bulloch County Schools Pre-Kindergarten classroom, he/she does not need to be registered for kindergarten unless he/she will be attending a different school than where he/she attended pre-k.
For more complete information, please review our Kindergarten Registration flyer available on this website.
Kindergarten Eligibility for 2017-2018
In accordance with state guidelines, for a child to be eligible to apply for one of the available kindergarten spaces for the 2017-2018 school year, the child must turn five years of age by September 1, 2017, and the parents/guardians must be residents of Bulloch County.
What to Bring to Kindergarten Registration
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/guardians must be the parent listed on the birth certificate or custody documents from the court system. The person bringing the child to be registered for school is the person who can withdraw that child at a later time unless legally acceptable arrangements are made for someone else to do so.
Parents/guardians must bring proper identification to Kindergarten Registration to prove custody, identity, residency, child's age and child's immunization. For your convenience, you may reference this Registration Checklist to 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 this/these student(s), c.) civil action for fraud, negligent misrepresentation and negligence.
- Notarized Residency Affidavit - including signature of person with whom the family is living.
- Proof of residency for person with whom family is living (see above)
If legal custody of a child is split between two parents, in addition to the documents listed above, the school needs a certified copy of the most recent court order identifying each parent's respective award of physical custody. Parents are responsible to immediately inform the school of any changes to the court order.
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.
