Online Registration for returning students

Students new to Hamilton County Schools for the 2018-2019 school year will be able to register online beginning Monday, July 16 on the district website at hcde.org. Online registration for new students will continue until Tuesday, September 7, 2018.

To access the registration section on the website, parents can select the “Parents” tab at the top of the homepage. When you place your cursor over Parents tab, you will see the option “Registration Information.” Select the registration information option. The link to new student registration will be in the menu section on the left of the page. Select “New Students” under the bold header “Registration Information.” Link to new student registration

Parents will need to know which school their home is zoned for in the registration process. The website directions provide the link to find this information. Parents can use their address to find the school their child should attend by using the online School Zone Finder

The option to upload documents needed to verify a child’s age and residency will be provided, during the online registration process, but parents will still need to take copies of the documents to the school. After a parent completes online registration, the school will contact them with additional information on when to visit the school to present the documents.

Documents needed for new student registration include:
• A certified copy of your child’s birth certificate
• Child's Social Security Card
• Tennessee School Immunization Certificate
• A photo ID of the parent or legal custodian
• Any custody documentation – We do NOT accept Power of Attorney
• Proof of residency:
o Lease, Mortgage or Deed
o Two (2) different utility bills dated within the last 30-60 days
