New Student Registration Now Open

Registration for students grades K-12, who are new to the Columbia County School District for the 2023-2024 school year is now open via Parent Portal.

A student new to the district is defined as:

  • A new family with no students currently enrolled in any school in the Columbia County School District
  • Pre-K students chosen via official CCSD lottery selection, if no other siblings are enrolled in a CCSD school
  • Kindergarten student not previously enrolled in CCSD Pre K
  • A student who has never attended a CCSD school

New student registration is available online and allows parents and legal guardians to upload required documentation like birth certificates, proofs of residency, and more, all from their home computers.

For current students planning to return next school year, the Annual Update has been replaced with Existing Student Registration. Beginning July 5, 2023, parents can complete Existing Student Registration via Parent Portal. Parents are encouraged to access Parent Portal prior to school ending this year, to ensure access over the summer months.

All new and existing student registration must be completed with required documentation before the first day of school on August 3, 2023.
