NEW STUDENT REGISTRATIONS

Welcome to Gainesville City School System! We are glad you are joining our growing family. Gainesville City School System has a centralized registration process and does not register students at individual schools. Registration is available online.

We have established elementary zone clusters in order to improve our transportation services. Gainesville City Schools will provide transportation services within your assigned cluster ONLY. The Gainesville City Schools Board of Education reserves the right to establish enrollment limits in all grades, classes, and/or programs. Therefore, there must be spaces available within the established cap amount for each grade level. Priority for classroom space will be provided to all City of Gainesville resident students first.

Student who wish do not live within Gainesville City Schools may apply for non-district enrollment.

For additional  assistance with online registration, please contact the Registration Center at 770 536-5275 Extensions 5138 or Brenda Robles, Registration Enrollment Specialist, [email protected]. Phone appointments are available.
