Child Registration FAQs

Where do I begin?

Welcome! If you have recently moved into our school district and have a child in grades K through 5, the information contained within this site will ensure that you have everything necessary to enroll your child and help us to provide a smooth transition to the educational community at GASD. We recommend that you call to set up a registration appointment. However, every effort will be made to accommodate walk-ins at our earliest availability. Your registration appointment will last approximately 20-30 minutes.

What are the available appointment registration times?

Hours when school is in session:
9:00 to 11:00 am and 1:00 to 2:30 pm

Summer registration hours:
9:00 to 11:00 am and 1:00 to 2:30 pm Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

Is there any additional information I need to bring to the appointment?

For grades K-5, a copy of your student’s last report card and/or withdrawal grades is very helpful. In addition, for students in grades 6-12, high school transcripts and a copy of the most recent standardized test scores are helpful in developing a student’s class schedule.  Finally, the parent/guardian will need to provide a photo ID at time of registration.

What happens at the registration appointment?

Registration forms are checked. Proof(s) of residency, birth certificates, custody agreements (if applicable), immunization records and any other documentation that you have brought, are reviewed. General information is provided about the schools and their programs. In addition, topics including: lunch prices, cafeteria point-of sale-procedures, bus information, C.L.A.S.S system, volunteer policy, activities, etc. are discussed.

What happens after the appointment?

We will contact the previous school requesting records for your child. Using information you and the previous school provides we will make a class placement to best meet your child’s educational needs. For middle and high school students, we will work with teachers, special departments, administrators and counselors to develop the best schedule to meet your child’s educational needs.

May I schedule a tour of the school?

During the school year, a tour may be scheduled with the Principal or Guidance counselor.

When will my child be able to attend school?

Once all registration forms have been completed, all documentation and verifications provided and records essential for placement have been received, a class placement and/or personalized education program will be made and a start date communicated to you.
