*2020-21 Lee County Pre-K Online Registration begins Friday, February 21!*
Welcome to the Lee County School District
Registering your child is often the first step in a successful academic experience. It involves some time and paperwork. We want to help make the process go smoothly, so please be sure to have all required documents and complete the registration forms online (this will expedite the enrollment process). The registration forms cannot be completed on a phone - a computer or tablet must be used. Once you have completed the form online, you will receive an email to click on a link to schedule an appointment with the Registrar. If you have any questions, please call 229-903-2133. The Central Registrar’s office is located at the Board of Education.
Lee County Schools
If you are registering a student in kindergarten, 1st , or 2nd grade, you will register at the Board office and then you will have to go to the school you are zoned for to have your child tested. Grades 3 through 12 will not be tested unless the student is coming from a home school setting. If your child has been homeschooled, it will be at the discretion of the school he/she attends as to whether or not testing is necessary. All schools reserve the right to test any student they feel needs to be tested for placement purposes.
Please keep in mind that you must have the required documents before your child is entered in the computer and placed in a classroom. Parents need to withdraw their child from their previous school and obtain the following documents: Birth Certificate, Social Security card, Immunization on GA Form 3231, and EED on GA Form 3300. For students coming from a Georgia public school, your school should have these documents. If you are coming from out of state, the immunization and EED can be obtained through a Georgia doctor’s office or the Health Department. Students in grades 6th through 12th must have a copy of the discipline and attendance for the previous school year and a copy of their transcript. They cannot be scheduled in a class until we have the discipline, attendance and transcript.
In addition to these documents, you must have a full executed lease, if you are renting, or a loan closing statement, mortgage statement, or tax bill if you are purchasing a home, AND with either of these you must have a current power bill which shows the service address. A copy of your ID is required. You will also be asked to sign an Affidavit of Residency, which can and will be used in a court of law should we find that the information you used to enroll your child was falsely given.
Your previous school might advise that we will send for records, and that you do not need these documents now. As a parent you have rights to these documents so don’t leave without them. We will send for academic records, but the birth certificate, SS card, immunization, EED, transcript, and discipline (for 6th to 12th grades) is required BEFORE we can enroll your child. It is the responsibility of the parent to obtain these items for the child they are enrolling – the schools cannot request them.
If you are not the biological or adoptive parent of the student you are enrolling, or if you are a father enrolling your child, be sure and check the required documents for information regarding either of these situations. If you are divorced from the student’s other parent, we must have a copy of the custody portion of your final decree.
The district reserves the right to deny enrollment if it feels that falsification of information has taken place or that the student does not reside at the residence stated in the registration paperwork. A home visit may be made if residency cannot be established to the district’s satisfaction. Should the district suspect, or receive information that you do not live where you stated, the district has the right to request further document to establish and prove residency.
If you have any questions regarding the registration procedures, please contact the Registrar Office at (229) 903-2133.
