Online Student Registration


New student registration is open and available online for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year.  This process is completed on a secure and easy-to-use online system, allowing Burke County parents and guardians to complete registration entirely online, including the ability to upload required documentation like birth certificates, proof of residency, etc. 

This online registration is for students enrolling in Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade.  Families will access the online registration by clicking the button to the right titled, "New Student Registration."

If families would like to register in person at the school, that is an option as well. 


Important: Kindergarten students must turn five years old on or before September 1st to be eligible for kindergarten.


STEP 1 - Gather the required documents needed for enrollment.

All students must provide two proofs of residency. Residency is defined as the full-time primary residence of the child and the child's parent or legal guardian. Proof of residency is established by providing two of the following items:
      • valid Georgia driver's license or state identification card
      • a current property tax receipt/bill or vehicle registration
      • power or gas bill (water bills cannot be accepted)
      • home mortgage note/sales agreement
      • lease or rental agreement/homeowner's policy
      • any other objective evidence that will enable school employees to make a correct determination as to "residence"
      • If a family resides in a home owned by someone other than the enrolling parent, the following is necessary for enrollment:
      • Notarized family residency affidavit signed by both parties in front of the notary at the school of enrollment
      • Mail with the address listed on the affidavit. 
Required documentation for all student registration includes the student's:
      • Original, certified birth certificate, hospital-issued birth record, or passport
      • Official Social Security Card
      • Georgia Certificate of Immunization
      • Four-Point Screening, which includes, Georgia Certificate of Vision, Hearing, Dental, and Nutrition Screening
      • Documentation of Food Stamps, SSI, Medicaid, TANF, or CAPS. If the family does not participate in any of these programs, upload a copy of the medical insurance card. 
      • A Report Card or address and phone number from your child’s previous school

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 document or a JPEG (picture).     


*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. 


STEP 2 - Complete the registration application. When uploading the documents, make sure they are clear and easy to read.  Information/documents can not be updated after pressing the "Submit" button on the registration application. 



Current Burke County families will access the online student information update through their existing Power School Parent Portal account by clicking the button to the right titled, "Returning Student Information Update." You will have the option to add other (new/current) students within your existing household while updating your current information.
