Get Ready... Get Set... Get Registered!

Get ready... Get set... Get registered!

     If you are new to Gwinnett County and need to register your child for school or your child is changing schools due to a move, summer is the best time to get ready, get set, and get registered! We know that students miss out on learning opportunities when families wait until the first day to register their child for school. In an effort to ensure new students are present and engaged in learning from the first day of school, Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) is encouraging families to visit their child’s new school on designated days in July for summer registration.

Registration is an easy two-part process:

  1. Start the registration process online (https://bit.ly/GCPS21onlineregis). Families can upload documents needed for registration. Most document attachments (PDF, JPG, DOC, PNG, etc.) are compatible. The file-size limit is 2 MB. (Families without internet access can bring documents to the school on designated days.)
  2. Visit your child’s new school to complete the process. All GCPS locations will be open for registration from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays in July—July 6, 8, 13, 15, 20, and 22. If you’re unsure which school your child will attend. Call your local school (http://bit.ly/SchoolPhoneListGCPS) about additional registration dates and hours.

Documents required for registration include:

  • An official document showing proof of birth date
  • Proof that you live in attendance zone
  • A valid Georgia certificate of immunization (GA Form #3231)
  • Evidence of Vision, Hearing, Dental, and Nutrition Screening (GA Form #3300-Rev. 2013)
  • Proof of authorized person to enroll
  • A photo ID for the adult registering the child
  • Child’s social security number (Students will be enrolled even if the number is not provided.)
  • Report cards or official school transcript (current K-12 student)
  • Withdrawal from previous school (current K-12 student)
  • Discipline records (students enrolling in grades 7-12)

     Families should begin online registration, even if their child’s health records are not up to date. However, you should complete your child’s health screening and immunizations with the Health Department or your physician before school starts.

     All GCPS students start school on Aug. 4, with a staggered start for in-person learning. Students in grades K, 1, 6, and 9, and students with special needs who are served in a small-group will start in-person learning on Aug. 4, with all other students participating in digital learning at home. On Aug. 5, students in grades 2, 3, 7, and 10 will start in-person learning, with remaining students in digital learning at home. On Aug. 9, students in grades 4, 5, 8, 11, and 12 will start in-person learning. (Students who opted out of in-person learning will begin digital learning on Aug. 4.)
