New Student Registration Gateway

While Cherokee County School District schools and office remain closed, registration for students new to CCSD for the 2020-21 school year is underway.

Parents of students entering kindergarten and/or students in Grades 1-12 who will be attending a CCSD school for the first time on Aug. 3, 2020 can begin enrollment by using the Registration Gateway website at  The Gateway asks parents to enter contact information and upload specific documents, with more information below.

An in-person meeting usually follows this online process, but as schools and offices are closed, those meetings instead will be conducted by video-conference or by phone call, depending on the parents’ access to technology.  School registrars have started contacting parents who previously completed the Registration Gateway process to begin setting up these virtual meetings.  If you were unable to upload documents, registrars will assist you during your virtual meeting.  

The skills assessment for incoming kindergartners will not be a part of the virtual meeting; those assessments will be conducted at a later date to be determined, with information to be provided to parents as soon as possible.

Parents who have questions or who need assistance can email CCSD staff at

School boundary maps can be viewed here to determine your attendance area.
