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

We are located at 86 Registration Drive Cartersville, GA 30121.

For GPS purposes, please use 1653 Cassville Road NW Cartersville, GA 30121. 


In accordance with the recommendation from Governor Kemp, Central Registration will be closed for customer service through April 24, 2020.    We expect to re-open April 27, 2020.  If you missed Kindergarten Registration, we will be happy to see you when we resume customer service.   


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


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  • Students who have been withdrawn from a Bartow County school for longer than 10 school days.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


Students Transferring within the District

NOTE: Students transferring from one Bartow County School to another Bartow County School do not need to register through Central Registration. Parent should go to current school to withdraw student. Once the student has been withdrawn, go to the new school with the withdrawal slip and two proofs of your new address. For more information, please contact your student's current school.
