Steps for the  2020-2021 SY Kindergarten Registration


Elementary (Grades K-5)

New Students (K-5)

Parents of new in-zone students complete registration information at their earliest convenience. Parents of new students shall provide the school with the required documentation below. All new students (kindergarten, tuition, and city residents) will complete student data forms online following the link above.

Kindergarten Registration
Pre-registration is for city residents only and takes place at the school for which your child is zoned. View a zoning map here. Kindergarten students must be 5 years of age on or before August 15. To pre-register your child for the coming school year, you must provide the information listed above by the first day of school. Please bring this information when you pre-register. The child must be present when you pre-register!

Parents who wish to enroll their kindergarten students in a different Elizabethton school than the one for which they are zoned should complete an out-of-zone application online in the Cyclone Connection (more info below). Out-of-zone requests will not be confirmed until the first half day of school, so these children should pre-register at the school for which they are currently zoned. 

 

2020-2021 Kindergarten Pre- Registration will be on-line only due to school closure for the Coronavirus. Health Screenings will be scheduled at a later date.

Elementary Registration
Elizabethton elementary schools will offer registration for new in-zone students in the month of July (exact dates to be announced once set). Students transferring from another school system will not be registered until records have been submitted from the sending school. All of the required documentation must be received prior to a student being enrolled. Parents may register online with the link above.

  • LEGAL DOCUMENTATION - If divorced (or legally separated) legal documentation must be provided to the school for custody requirements.
  • IMMUNIZATION RECORD – Official TN Dept. of Heath Certificate of Immunization Record Form

Returning Students (K-5)

Please log in to Skyward Family Access to update your child’s enrollment information. Please reference the Skyward Family Access web page for instructions on registering for Skyward if you have not already done so. Your child's school must have a current email address on file for you to access Skyward. New students (in-zone, new tuition, and kindergarten) will complete paper forms. Please contact your child's school with questions or concerns.

Returning Tuition and Out-of-Zone Students
Returning tuition and returning out-of-zone students do not need to use the Cyclone Connection to apply online for tuition or out-of-zone status. Parents of returning tuition and out-of-zone students will still update their student data forms in Skyward as described above, just like returning city students.  With questions about this process, please call Central Office (547-8000). Parents of returning tuition and out-of-zone students in elementary school ONLY will need to complete the Returning K-5 Out-of-Zone Application or Returning K-5 Tuition Application.

The Returning Tuition and Out-Of-Zone Parents: Please note that paper forms will be mailed to you from the Bookkeeper at your school due to the school closure for the remainder of the school year.

This information lets school staff know how many students to expect in the coming school year. 

New Tuition Applicants and New Out-of-Zone Requests (K-5)

Tuition students are those whose parents or guardians do not live within Elizabethton city limits, but who wish to attend Elizabethton City Schools as tuition-paying students. Reference Board Policy 6.204.

Out-of-Zone placement requests may be made by parents for students who are zoned for an Elizabethton elementary school but wish to attend a different Elizabethton elementary school.

Parents interested in their children attending Elizabethton City Schools as new tuition students should apply online in the Cyclone Connection for grades K-8 or in-person for grades 9-12. The Cyclone Connection will open Wednesday, April 1 at 8 a.m., and applications are sorted on a first-come, first-served basis with regard to the priority order. The Cyclone Connection doubles as the out-of-zone request form for Elizabethton elementary students applying to enroll at a different Elizabethton elementary school than the one for which they’re zoned. A link to the Cyclone Connection will be available on this web page as well as on ECS Facebook and Twitter.  All applications should be completed by May 1, 2020. However, online applications will be accepted until the day before the first half-day of school.

Elementary students’ acceptance will not be confirmed until the first half day of school when schools can verify enrollment of Elizabethton residents. In recent years, all tuition applicants have been accepted, though ECS cannot guarantee students will be placed in their first-choice school.

Tuition Fees

Tuition may be paid either in one lump sum, at the beginning of each semester, or monthly online. The annual tuition fee schedule is below. The family cap is $2,200 annually. Tuition status may be revoked based on failure to submit tuition payment or failure to meet the requirements of Board Policy 6.204.
