Registration for next year’s Coweta County kindergartners and pre-kindergartners starts Monday and runs through March 23 at district elementary schools.

Elementary schools will register pre-K and kindergarten students during that period on Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. To accommodate work schedules, all schools will also hold an expanded registration day from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. March 20.

Pre-K students in the Atkinson, Elm Street, Northside and Ruth Hill Elementary Schools attend pre-kindergarten classes at Jefferson Parkway Elementary School. Atkinson, Elm Street, and Jefferson Parkway Pre-K students will register at Jefferson Parkway Elementary Schools. Northside and Ruth Hill Elementary School Pre-K students register at Northside and Ruth Hill.

All other Pre-K students and all kindergarten students should be registered at their district schools (call 770-254-2820 to inquire about school districts).

School system pre-kindergarten classes funded by the state of Georgia have limited enrollment. As in past years, schools that have more Pre-K registrants than class slots will hold a lottery drawing for enrollment in the Pre-K class .

That lottery drawing will be held at each school’s media center, as necessary, March 23, at 1 p.m. The names of students not chosen by lottery for available class slots will be placed on a waiting list.

To register a child for the first time in Coweta County Schools, parents will need to bring:

· An Affidavit of Residence (to be obtained at the school)

· Two items from the following list for address verification:

Property tax records which indicate the location of the residence.

Mortgage documents or a security deed which indicates the location of the residence.

Apartment or home lease or rent receipt indicating the current address.

Current electric bill or application for electricity service showing the current address.

Voter precinct identification card or other voter documentation indicating the current address.

· Child’s Social Security Card

· State ID or Drivers License of parent or legal guardian registering student

· Custody papers (if applicable)

Coweta County students will also need an immunization certificate (Georgia Form 3231) and a Hearing-Dental-Vision Certificate (Georgia Form 3300) by the first day of the 2007-08 school year.

Immunization and health screenings can be obtained from private physicians and from the Coweta County Health Department, at 137 Jackson Street in Newnan. The county health department gives immunizations and screenings Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., and 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. An appointment is required at the Newnan office.

For more information, call the health department at 770-254-7400, or contact your child’s health care provider.

For more information, parents should contact their district elementary school. After School Programs are also available at Coweta County Schools, and parents can inquire about fees and times at their district school.
