Whether your child is a returning student from the previous school year or brand new to the Hamblen County School System, his/her enrollment begins by registering online. Parents can register online for their child’s zoned school.

 

We are asking that all student registrations be completed PRIOR to registration day (August 3, 2017), if at all possible.   If you are not able to complete the registration process prior to this date, a limited number of computer stations will be available to you on registration day at your child’s school. You can complete the registration process from a smartphone that has a browser and data plan. Data rates may apply depending on your plan.

 

NEW STUDENTS

Estimated time to complete the registration is about 30 minutes per student who is being registered, if you have all available information ready when you begin the process. You will create an online registration account before you begin.

The following is a list of information you will need to gather prior to starting the process:

·        An active email address is required to register online.   If you do not have one, you can try a free site like Gmail, Yahoo, or Outlook

·        Previous School Name, Previous School’s address, City, State, ZIP
