We’re always excited to help new SCS students get enrolled. Whether a student is planning to attend their zoned school or is approved for one of our many school choice options, registration is required if the child is brand new to the District.
A PowerSchool parent account is required for registration. PowerSchool cannot be accessed on your own, so we recommend contacting our Parent Welcome Center, (901) 416-5300 or 2687 Avery Ave., for the quickest PowerSchool account setup. You can also contact your child’s zoned school or approved school choice location for assistance.
Once all required information and documents are obtained (see below), you will receive an access code to create your PowerSchool parent account and begin the “New Student Registration” process.
Current SCS students are not required to register each year. Students can continue attending their zoned schools or approved school choice locations each year, and parents can easily review and make updates to student information at any time prior to or during the school year using the Year-Round Updates form in PowerSchool.
If your child previously attended SCS, but his/her most recent school was not an SCS school, he/she is still considered a returning student. You will just have to make updates to their registration information on file using the Year-Round Updates link in your PowerSchool parent account. If you have a SCS Pre-K student who will be entering Kindergarten, he/she is also considered a returning student, so you can use the Year-Round Updates link in your PowerSchool parent account to provide necessary additional information.
If your child is applying for a school choice transfer (General Choice or Optional Schools) from one SCS school to another, he/she does not have to register. If the school choice application is approved, you can easily update your child’s information using the Year-Round Updates link in your PowerSchool parent account.
The Parent Welcome Center is open Monday – Friday to assist families with registration and many other school processes and student services.
