Douglas County School Registration Requirements

Information for Parents

To better serve the families in our community, the Douglas County School System is excited to announce the opening of the new "STUDENT REGISTRATION CENTER" for the 2006-2007 school year. All students who are new to our school system, including Kindergarten, will need to register at the Center.  In county transfers will still be maintained from school to school.


Parents should obtain the following documents, that are listed below, and bring them to the Registration Center.  The Registration Center is located at 4841 Highway 5 in Douglasville. 

Douglas County main registration page.

From Annette Winn, go west on I-20 to Exit 34, Highway 5, turn left at the traffic light.  Drive for 5 miles until you see the Bill Arp Ball Park.  The Registration Center is across from the Dollar General.  Follow the sign and drive around back.

Scheduled appointments are taken by calling 770-651-2050 to set one up.  Students do not have to be present to enroll.    Hours for registration are Monday - Friday, 8:00 A.M. until 11:45  1:00 until 4:30 P.M. (closed for lunch 12-1:00 p.m.).

As a reminder, so that enrolling your student/students will be minimum, Parents/Guardians should obtain the following  documents and bring them when enrolling a student into the Douglas County School System.  A child may be denied access from registering without all the required papers.  If the school year is in effect and you have not withdrawn your student from the previous school, you must do so before entering our school system.
