    Parents, in order to help with the governor’s social distancing policy, we are asking that you complete the necessary paperwork before you arrive for registration (our packet is available on the CCS website).  Also, if at all possible, please do not bring children with you so we can keep individuals in the building to a minimum.

     The following documentation is required in order to register:

    1.  Records from previous schools - Withdrawal forms (including IEP if applicable), Discipline & Attendance as well as the school's address. Withdrawal from any previous school should be accomplished BEFORE enrolling in the Cartersville School System.

  • The Georgia Department of Education (GADOE) and the Georgia Department of Public Health (GDPH) released recommendations earlier today, June 1, in an effort to support Georgia school districts in their development of plans to safely reopen schools. During the past month, district officials and administrators at Cartersville City Schools have been investigating the best possible scenarios to convene school in the fall while protecting the health and safety of our community. Plans to reopen schools will be released as they are finalized later this summer.

    Superintendent Dr. Marc Feuerbach said, "We are pleased to see areas where our tentative plans align with the recommendations from GaDOE and GDPH. Using the most current information and collaborating with local health officials, we are working to develop a plan that best supports our community."

  • Pre-K Registration

    The 2020 - 2021 Pre-K Registration was held on Tuesday, March 3.  Cartersville City Schools closed all its schools and offices beginning Monday, March 16 and will remain closed for the remainder of this school year. Due to this unforeseen circumstance, all of our original dates in relation to our Pre-K enrollment were extended.  The requirements to determine the priority in which we conduct our enrollment lottery are utilized because there are more people that wish to attend our school than we can accommodate.  It is our understanding that the COVID-19 Pandemic has made it difficult for some to obtain the necessary paperwork to qualify for the earliest rounds of the enrollment lottery.  Nonetheless, to be fair to those applicants that had all the required paperwork on March 3 or submitted that paperwork via electronic methods no later than Friday, April 3, we will conduct our enrollment lottery using our original established parameters on Monday, April 13.  Rosters will be posted no later than 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 14.  If you still have documents to submit, please email them to slinsey@cartersvilleschools.org and dosborn@cartersvilleschools.org or fax them to 678-535-6329.

    No new applications will be accepted until the school system is able to reopen.
