Online Student Registration

New student registration is open and available online for the 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 only for students enrolling in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Pre-K Registration for the 2023-2024 school year is scheduled for April 17-April 28, 2023. Families will access the online registration by clicking the Registration buttons on the right.


If families would like to register in person at the school, that is an option as well. Click the School Profiles button for contact information. 

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


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).

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:

      • 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. 
  • Click the New Student Registration button on the right. 
  • When uploading the documents, make sure they are clear and easy to read. 
  • Documents cannot be updated after pressing the "Submit" button on the registration application. 


The following online process replaces the paper forms sent home at the beginning of each school year used to update student information.  Updating your current contact information is imperative for receiving important updates, should there be an emergency at your child's school. 
An email from [email protected] has been sent to the first parent/guardian listed in PowerSchool. This email will contain your student's unique verification passcode, called a "SnapCode." If you are a parent/guardian of multiple returning students, you will receive a separate email for each student.
Burke County families will access the online student information update through their existing PowerSchool Parent Portal account by clicking on the link provided in their e-mail or by clicking the button to the right titled, "Current Student Information Update."
*When updating student information through the PowerSchool Parent Portal, you will be required to enter your child's SnapCode.

**Parents/Guardians will have the option to add other (new/current) students within your existing household while updating their current information.  

First, check your junk or spam folder for an email from [email protected].
If you have not received the email, contact your student’s school to update your email and retrieve your SnapCode. Snapcodes will only be sent to a parent/guardian and only to the email address we have on file.
