Thank you for choosing Effingham County Schools! At Central Registration, we register all students; those new to Effingham County as well as those who have been off roll for 10+ consecutive days. If your student is transferring from one Effingham County School to another without missing 10+ consecutive days, s/he may report to the new school without going through Central Registration.
Whether you are new to our district or already have students in our schools, registering with our district is a two step process:
Step One: Step Two: New families: Complete your online application
Existing Families: Follow these steps
Cell phones and tablets are not recommended for this step. If you do not have access to a laptop or desktop computer, you can arrive at your appointment early and use one at the Central Registration Center.
You must submit your online application before making your appointment. You will be asked for your application number as part of the reservation process.

Appointments are absolutely required from June 1st through the end of the first week of each school year. If you are registering for your student(s) to begin after a holiday or the first day of school, appointments are also critical. Walk-ins will be seen during other times as time becomes available between scheduled appointments.
You should come to your appointment with all required documents.
After registering with Central Registration during the school year, parents/guardians and students will visit the assigned school to enroll and obtain class assignments, schedules and other information unique to the school. The family must present the unopened packet of forms given at Central Registration. Otherwise, the student cannot be enrolled. Central Registration does not maintain copies of completed forms and documents. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to transport these documents.
