School Registration


Parents/legal guardians may register their children at the school of assignment designated by their residential address. To determine the school of assignment, click on the MapNetWEB School Locator tab above.

Parents/guardians may also register their children at Central Registration, Muscogee County Public Education Center, 2960 Macon Road. The Center is open from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, year round. Parents/guardians of special needs children who are new to the school district or who have moved within the district must report to Central Registration to receive the school assignment. Please bring the current IEP and any other student records you may have.

Any person who is not the parent/legal guardian of the child must report to Central Registration for approval by the Director of Student Services before enrollment into school.

We encourage the families who move into our system or within the system during the summer months to register their children as soon as possible before school starts.
