NEW STUDENT ONLINE ENROLLMENT & REGISTRATION
Atlanta Public Schools has a new online enrollment and registration system that parents can use to enroll new students online, when and where it is most convenient for them, and in just a few minutes. Parents will have the ability to enter the student’s enrollment information and securely upload documents before visiting the school to finalize enrollment.
The online enrollment system allows parents to pre-populate their child's enrollment information and confidentially upload scans or PDFs of forms like birth certificates or immunization records to create their preliminary enrollment record. The system also uses the information to determine the student's neighborhood school and can forward it directly to the school or enrollment site. Parents will then visit the school or enrollment site to complete the process and present residency documents and student documents, such as certified birth certificates, social security cards and immunization records, to staff to review and confirm their authenticity.
The process to enroll a new student can be time-consuming. Once parents complete forms, school personnel are responsible for manually entering the information into the student information system. This is a labor intensive task for school staff who are challenged with completing other duties while still charged with providing quality customer service.
The online enrollment system is provided in English and Spanish. Paper forms are still available for parents without computer or internet access, or they can use a computer at the enrollment site to begin the enrollment process.
