Ware County Schools!
We are so excited that you have chosen to join the Ware County Schools family. School registration is for new students only. If your child is already a student in our school district and you have moved residences or need to update information, you may contact your child's school.
The new 2020-2021 school year is tentatively scheduled to begin on August 5, 2020. You may now register new students for grades PK-12 by downloading the appropriate form listed below and dropping it, along with required documentation, in our convenient dropbox Monday - Thursday between the hours of 8AM and 3PM. Registrations for all K-12 students will be received in the dropbox located at the Ware County Schools Central Office, 1301 Bailey Street, Waycross, GA, and Pre-K registrations will be received at DAFFODIL Pre-K, located at 1321 Buchannon Street, Waycross, GA. Please click the link below to access the appropriate registration form. If you are unable to print the form, copies will be available to you at the Central Office.

STEP ONE - GATHER REQUIRED DOCUMENTS
To register a child for school, a parent, guardian, or other person authorized to register the student must provide appropriate documentation, including Proof of Child’s Residence, Child’s Certified Birth Certificate, Child’s Complete Georgia Immunization Record, Child’s Social Security Card, and Custodial Rights Documentation (if applicable). Because schools are currently closed to the public, parents/guardians must provide copies of the required documents. The school will not be able to make copies.
Please note: Falsification of any information or document required for residency verification or the use of the address of another person without actually residing there may result in revocation of student enrollment, parent/guardian being held liable to reimburse the district for expenses incurred to educate the student(s) and civil action from fraud, negligent misrepresentation, and negligence.
STEP TWO - COMPLETE AND SUBMIT ALL REQUIRED FORMS/DOCUMENTATION
Complete the registration information, securely attach documentation to the registration form, and drop inside the appropriate dropbox. A representative from your child's school will contact you if any further information or action is required.
If you have questions, please contact the school for which your child is zoned based on his/her mailing address. Center Elementary, Memorial Drive Elementary, and Williams Heights Elementary are feeder schools for Waycross Middle School. Ruskin Elementary, Wacona Elementary, and Waresboro Elementary are zoned for Ware County Middle School.
