School Registration Procedures
All new students enroll for school at the Central Registration office. At this one-stop-shop, parents register their child(ren) and obtain information on the services offered whether the student is regular education, gifted and talented or special needs. They will also be provided information on transportation regarding the bus stops, bus number and schedule. Parents are encouraged to complete the online registration prior to visiting the central registration office, with all required documentation. These forms and a list of required items may be found on the Houston County School District's link at www.hcbe.net/centralregistration. The website also has other pertinent information such as answers to anticipated questions. Central Registration is located at 410 Bear Country Blvd Warner Robins, phone 478-741-3610, or email, CentralRegistration@hcbe.net.
The following items are required for registration:
GA Form 3231 - Georgia Immunization Certificate (military families have 30 days from registration to complete and turn in this form, however, district requests some proof of immunizations at initial registration appointment)

The Houston County Board of Education does not offer school of choice. Board policy requires that students attend school in the zone in which they reside. School choice is not an option except in unique circumstances. One of these exceptions is a House Bill 224 (HB 224) transfer for military families who live on an installation.
The 2017, Georgia General Assembly approved HB 224 giving a school aged child of a military service member living on a military base the option to request any school within the school system based on space availability. Local school districts determine space availability after all assigned students have been enrolled. Visit the website hcbe.net under "Zoning" or the military family support tab for more information.
