Welcome to Bulloch County Schools
Welcome to Bulloch County Schools. We look forward to partnering with you to guide your child to academic and career success. Our school offices are open Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. (elem.) and 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. (middle/high) throughout the school year to help register new students.
2016 Summer Registration Hours
School offices open May 31 - June 15 & July 11 -29, 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.
If your child will be a new student in our school system for the 2016-17 year, we welcome you to register your child before the first day of school (August 1, 2016).
If your child attended Bulloch County Schools last year, but you have moved to a different school zone or were approved for a transfer to a new zone, please contact your previous school to request a transfer of records and contact your new school to register. Like with new students, this should be completed prior to August 1, the first day of school.
2016 Bulloch County Schools Open House
Be sure to attend our district-wide Open House at all elementary, middle and high schools on Thursday, July 28. Elementary Open House is 4 p.m. - 6:00 p.m., and Open House for middle and high schools is 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. This is a great time to orient yourself to your school if you are new, reunite with friends and faculty, meet new teachers, pick up important school information and learn about opportunities for parents and students.
How to Register for School
All children in the United States are entitled to equal access to a basic public elementary and secondary education regardless of their actual or perceived race, color, national origin, citizenship, immigration status, or the status of their parents/guardians. School districts that either prohibit or discourage, or maintain policies that have the effect of prohibiting or discouraging, children from enrolling in schools because they or their parents/guardians are not U.S. citizens or are undocumented may be in violation of Federal law. For more information on the rights of all children to enroll in school, click here for a fact sheet.
Registration must be done at the school for which your child is zoned to attend. Attendance zones are based on the property address of where you and your child live. Families will complete the following forms for each child in the family:
- Formulario De Inscripción Familiar
- Formulario De Inscripcion Del Estudiante
- Formulario de Información Médica anual
Our goal is to reduce the amount of paperwork that a family has to complete for school enrollment. Please help us by calling to make an appointment with your oldest child’s school for paperwork completion.
Documents You Will Need to Provide
Registration must be done at the school where you are zoned for attendance. Students are assigned to a school by their custodial parent or legal guardian's residence address.
The legal custodial parent/guardian must accompany a student to register for school. Parents/guardians must be the parent listed on the birth certificate or custody documents from the court system. The person bringing the student to be registered for school is the person who can withdraw that student at a later time unless legally acceptable arrangements are made for someone else to do so.
Parents/guardians must bring appropriate documentation to register a child. Falsification of any information or document required for residency verification or the use of the address of another person without actually residing there may result in the following: a.) revocation of student enrollment, b.) being held liable to reimburse the district for expenses incurred to educate this/these student(s), c.) civil action from fraud, negligent misrepresentation and negligence.
School Transfer Requests
Parents/guardians of students may request a transfer under the following situations:
- Students who are the children of full-time employees of a specific school may attend that school and follow the feeder school pattern as long as that parent is a full-time employee in that feeder pattern.
- Parent/guardian who changes residency during the school term and wishes for the students to complete the year at the current school.
- Students requiring academic services which are not available in the designated area school.
- Medical conditions that create hardship.
- School Choice (HB 251)
Parents/guardians may apply for transfer through the Bulloch County Board of Education Operations Department, located at 219 Simons Road. For more information, call (912) 212-8640.
