Greenville County Schools Enrollment For Kindergarten And First Grade Opens In December

The Greenville County Schools has made an announcement that enrollment for kindergarten and first grade will be open from December 1 through December 4. 

Parents are reminded that it is extremely important that children are enrolled during the said period to ensure that there are enough teachers in every classroom on the first day of school.

Children who will be five years old on or before September 1 of the current year must enroll in public or private kindergarten unless the parent or legal guardian signs a waiver. Any child who will be six years old on or before September 1 of the current year must enroll in first grade. Students who are currently enrolled in a GCS 4K or 5K program do not need to register.

Parents can process the enrollment of their children by visiting the parent section of the Greenville County Schools website and setting up a Backpack account then click on “Enroll A Student” and follow the instructions.

For families who do not have internet access available, the Student Enrollment Form and Home Language Survey form are available at each school.

The following documents are required for online or face-to-face registration:

  • Photo ID from any state or country
  • Two current “proof of residency” documents (all must contain property address). These can be a combination of:
    • Current bills – i.e. electric, gas, water, cable
    • Current mortgage statement or current signed lease agreement with the landlord’s name and phone number
  • Child’s Birth Certificate
  • Signed Certificate of Immunization, Conditional Certificate of Immunization, or Religious Exemption Certificate (Religious Exemption Certificate provided by Health Department)

A GCS virtual program for 5K through 12th grade will be available in the 2021-2022 school year. An application will be posted on the Greenville County Schools website in the early spring of 2021.
