Welcome to the Burke County Public School District!


We are excited to announce that we are moving!  New student enrollment and returning student annual verification is now an online process for the upcoming school year!  This replaces the paper forms sent home at the beginning of each school year.  


New student registration is open and available online for the 2021-2022 school year. 


For the best user experience, please be prepared with all of the proper documentation before beginning the registration process. To prepare documents for uploading, save files and images of documents to your device as a PDF or a JPEG.     


If you don't have access to a computer, please contact your child's school to arrange a time to go to the school to register. 


New student registration begins May 14, 2021 and must be completed with all required documentation before the first day of school, August 3, 2021.   


The process for returning students is fast and should take less than ten minutes to complete. Parents may begin the annual verification process online beginning July 15, 2021.


Kindergarten students must turn five years old on or before Sept. 1, 2021, to be eligible for kindergarten.
