Rockdale County Public Schools are registering eligible students for kindergarten from now until March 31 for the 2010-2011 school year. Pre-K enrollment will begin April 19 to April 30.
All students who will turn 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2010, should register for kindergarten by March 31. Students that turn 4 years old by Sept. 1, 2010, are eligible to register for Pre-K.
Parents can register their children at the Student Registration at the Support Services building located at 1143 West Avenue in Conyers between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. During the time of registration, please be sure to bring the student’s birth certificate, social security card, certificate of immunization (Form 3231), eye/ear/dental certificate (Form 3300), and a photo ID of the parent or proof of custody or guardianship if person enrolling is not the parent.
A proof of residence is also required with one of the following: lease agreement along with either electric/water/or gas bill, lease agreement along with automobile registration, property tax receipt along with electric/water/or gas bill, or a property tax receipt along with an automobile registration. At the time of registration, the student’s school will be assigned and the school contact information will be given. Elementary schools will need to conduct screen testing on students early in May before class assignments can be made. Once students are registered in the Rockdale County School System, appointments can be made with the school for screen testing and class enrollment.
