The Cherokee County School District is opening online registration for 2020-21 kindergarten students and first graders new to CCSD on Monday, January 27. The Registration Gateway allows parents to log in from home via CCSD’s website and get enrollment forms filled out online, rather than filling them out by hand while waiting at a school office. The online registration process takes about 15-20 minutes; parents will enter their own identification information, such as emergency contact names and phone numbers, which increases accuracy and eliminates redundancy. Required documents (birth certificate, proof of residency, etc.) will be brought to the follow-up appointment at the school, which the parent will schedule online as part of the Gateway process.
Children who are turning 5 on or before September 1, 2020 are eligible for kindergarten, and children who are turning 6 on or before September 1, 2020 are eligible for first grade (registration for first grade is only necessary if a child has not attended a CCSD school the previous year). New student registration online for all other grades (2-12) for the 2020-21 school year will open on April 13 when schools and offices reopen after spring break.
