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.

6. Proof of City Residence*- Cartersville City Schools are open to any eligible student who legally reside within the Cartersville City Limits.  Out-of-district students may apply for enrollment subject to Board Policy.  Prior to enrollment, all schools in the Cartersville School System require that the Parent/legal guardian provide a lease, deed and city utility bill with the parent/legal guardian's name and address (Post Office Box Number is NOT acceptable)  Any parent/legal guardian submitting false proof of City Residence documentation may result in the student(s) being immediately withdrawn from school.

*If the student qualifies as homeless in accordance with McKinney-Vento Law, the above proof is not required for enrollment but is appreciated.
