Registration Process Explained

Begin by going to the school (contact info below)that your child will attend where you will complete a Registration Affidavit. Newcomers and those who have moved to a new school attendance area in Dare County should bring the following items when registering a child:

  • A certified copy of the student's birth certificate.
  • Proof of residence of parent(s) (or court-appointed guardian) include driver's licenses with current address, voter registration card, or NC DMV ID. For questions relating to guardianship, please speak with the school principal.
  • If arriving from another school system, a copy of the child's latest report card (elementary and middle school) or transcript(high school) and the previous year's achievement test results are helpful.
  • If bringing the child's records is a problem, the new school will contact the child's previous school and request the records.
  • Please call the school to make an appointment to register your child. While not required, calling ahead can save you a lot of time!  (Schools are open Monday through Thursday in the summer.)
