You’ve done your homework and narrowed down your list of schools, so now it’s time to work on getting your child a seat in one of your top choices. If you choose the public school you’re zoned to, there’s little left to do but register, which is when you’ll provide proof of residency, immunizations and such. Some local districts do that in the spring. Shelby County Schools open online registration in the summer.
But if you’re not picking your neighborhood school, you’ll need to make sure you know the key enrollment dates for the schools you’re hoping for, such as:
- The date enrollment windows open
- Application and financial aid deadlines
- Testing dates
