Central Registration



Welcome to the Bartow County School System's Central Registration Office


We’re excited to have you join our school system. BCSS Central Registration Office registers the following students:


  • Students new to Bartow County
  • Students who have been withdrawn from a Bartow County school for longer than 10 school days

In order to attend a school in the Bartow County School System, new students and their families must complete a Two-Step Process.


Step 1 – Registration: Parent/guardians must visit the Central Registration Office and bring a copy of all required documentation.  It is recommended that parents complete the registration packet prior to their visit to expedite the process.  The family will register all school-aged children during this one visit.


Step 2 – Enrollment: Parents/guardians and students will visit the assigned school to enroll and obtain class assignments, schedules and other information unique to the school. 


Please note: Due to the high volume of enrollments during the first 2 weeks of school, there may be at least a 48-hour enrollment processing time.



Note: Students transferring from one Bartow County School to another do not need to register through Central Registration.
Normal Business hours are Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.  Our phone number is (770)606-5175.
