    Parent Portal? What's that?

    Click the button below for instructions on how to create your Parent Portal account today!

    *Hint: The instructions mention a "key" you are given during the account creation process. It's a rather long string of letters and numbers. You need this key to create your account, so make sure you screen shot it or write it down. The good news is, you only need it once!

  • How old must students be to enroll in Georgia schools?

    Georgia law requires that children must be five years old on or before September 1 to enroll in kindergarten and six years old on or before September 1 to enroll in first grade in public schools. A child who has lived in another state for at least two years before moving to Georgia, and was legally enrolled in a public kindergarten or first grade in that state, may enroll in a Georgia public school kindergarten or first grade, provided the child will be five for kindergarten and six for first grade by December 31. Limited seats are available at various locations in pre-Kindergarten programs for preschoolers who participate in the annual Georgia Pre-K Lottery program. To qualify for pre-K, children must be four (4) years old by September 1.
