Parents, legal guardians strongly encouraged to register children for school now

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Operation Registration 2014 is underway in the Muscogee County School District!

Parents or legal guardians who have a child who is a new student to the MCSD, or any parent or legal guardian who has moved or have a change of address, should register the child for school now. Don't delay, and beat the wait!

Parents who have children who are new to the district or have moved at the middle and high school levels should register at the child's zone school of assignment. Parents of elementary children who are new to the district, have moved or have a change of address should register at the Central Registration Office, 2960 Macon Road.

All schools and Central Registration are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Thursday to serve you during our summer hours of operation. Schools and administrative offices are closed on Fridays through July 18.

Two proofs of residency, birth certificate, social security card, withdrawal form and a report card are required to register. Parents should also bring the current Individual Education Plan (IEP) and any other student records to register the child.

Avoid unnecessary long lines, and long wait times by registering your child today. Parents can call the school in advance, access the school web site, district web site (School Registration), or call (706) 748-2221 for more registration information.
