COLUMBUS, Ga. (WRBL) – The Muscogee County School District is preparing for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year.

The district has developed a new online application portal for registration and verification.  Parents with new or returning students can access the application on the District’s website starting 8:00 a.m., July 3rd.

With COVID-19 still being a major factor, the district is implementing the School Choice option for return, allowing parents can choose either in-person or virtual instruction. Preferences must be declared within the application by 5:00 p.m., July 17.

Each declared preference will be reviewed to complete enrollment at each school site. The online application will not complete enrollment; all student assignments will be finalized based upon each student’s verified household address per the annual District-wide Verification Day, August 5, 2020. 

Once confirmed, each option will be applicable for the duration of a full nine-week grading period or semester (block schedule). Upon acceptance, changes to each option cannot occur until the next grading period.

The following parameters indicate how to access and complete the online application.
