    Choose one of the options below to determine what you will need to register your child.

  • New to Gwinnett County Public Schools

    Step 1: Online Registration

    Families of students who are new to GCPS should begin by completing the district's online registration process. Access online registration from this link. You must complete and submit your entire online registration at the same time.

    You will need the following items to complete online registration:

    • Active e-mail address
    • Home address and phone number
    • Additional phone numbers for parents or guardians
    • Emergency contacts and their phone numbers (if applicable)
    • Medications and health concerns
    • Prior school information, including a school phone number
    • Discipline information
    • Student's Social Security Number (optional)

    Step 2: In-Person Verification

    Once online registration is complete, please schedule an appointment with our Registrar, Patti Nelson at 770-995-7133.

    You'll need to bring several documents with you to ensure your student can be registered in one visit. Please contact us if you have any questions about the required documents.

    Documents Required for Enrollment:

    • Student's birth certificate
    • Student's Social Security card
    • Immunization record (Georgia Form 3231)
    • Hearing/Vision/Dental (Georgia Form 3300)
    • Final previous school year's report card showing proof of grade or withdrawal form from the previous school
    • Proof of residency in the form of your lease or deed AND a gas, water, or power bill
    • Any special education or gifted eligibility information (as applicable)

  • New to the Discovery Cluster

    Step 1: Obtain a Change of Status Form

    The GCPS school from which the student is withdrawing will provide the Change of Status form (along with a withdrawal form) to the family requesting the change.

    Parents of students transferring from one GCPS school to another will complete the Change of Status Form, submitting it along with proper documentation to the new GCPS school.

    Step 2: Visit Richards Middle

    Once you have the completed Change of Status Form, please contact the Registrar, Patti Nelson, to schedule an appointment at 770-995-7133.

    Proof of Authorized Person to Enroll

    The following persons are authorized to enroll students:

    • Parent (natural or adoptive)
    • Legal guardian (must provide legal documentation)
    • Foster parent approved by a state agency

    The person authorized to enroll must present one of the following:

    • Driver's License
    • State-issued identification card
    • Passport
    • Other official photo identification

  • Re-enrolling in Gwinnett County Middle Schools

    Students who have previously attended a GCPS school at any point in their academic career already have a student ID number and are considered re-enrolling students.

    Parents of re-enrolling students must complete registration using paper forms. Online registration is not an option as it would create a duplicate record of your student in our systems.

    Please contact the Registrar, Patti Nelson, to schedule an appointment.
