• Withdrawing Students Header
  • Important Information:

    • Please notify the Front Office and child's teacher at least a week before the child is to withdraw.

    • The parent who enrolled the student must complete the withdrawal process shown below.

    • Students will need to turn in all textbooks, media center items, and pay any school fees (breakfast/lunch balances, overdue books, etc...) so that their record will be cleared.

    • A sealed withdrawal packet will be sent home with your child on his/her last day of attendance.

    • Your child's record will be sent directly to the new school once a Records Release Form is signed at the new school.

    If you have any questions regarding the registration process, please contact the school at 770-972-8050.

  • Step 1: Complete the Online Withdrawal Form

    We wish your child the best during the transition to a new school. Our school system has an easy-to-use, secure online withdrawal process that will allow you to complete the form required for withdrawing your child.

    Once you complete and submit the online withdrawal form, you will be contacted by a school representative to verify your ID and to provide you with any additional information necessary to complete the withdrawal if needed for your child.

    If using a browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox) other than Internet Explorer (IE), in order to complete the form and submit it, you will need to do the following steps:

    • We encourage parents to use a computer instead of a mobile device or tablet
    • Click here to DOWNLOAD/SAVE the form to your device
    • Open the downloaded form with an Adobe application
    • Fill out the form
    • Click on the submit button at the bottom of the form
      • This will open up the default email application you have selected on your personal computer. You will see the form you completed attached to a new email. You will click the send icon to send the form to our registrar.

    If using Internet Explorer (IE):

    If you experience trouble using the submit feature on the form, please save the file to your computer and email it directly to 480records@gcpsk12.org.

  • Step 2: Next Steps

    • Upon completion of the withdrawal form by the parent, the school will review the form and will contact the parent, if needed, for any missing information. 
    • The school will contact the parent to set up a virtual meeting to verify the identity of the withdrawing parent. If parents have not been contacted after 24 hours of completing the online form, please call the school at 770-972-8050 to verify the school received the submitted online form.
    • After verifying the identity of the withdrawing parent, the school will email the parent prior to sending the completed withdrawal form. This initial email will provide parents with directions on how to open an encrypted PDF message sent by Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS).
    • The school will finalize the withdrawal process by securely emailing the encrypted withdrawal form.
    • An Enrollment Verification Form will also be included in this email. This form should be completed by the student’s new school and faxed back to Head Elementary to complete the process.
