New Student Enrollment
Online enrollment is currently open for 2021-22 for all new students, including incoming kindergarten students.
Georgetown Independent School District accepts enrollment from all students within the district boundaries who meet age, residency, and health requirements. When enrolling a student for the first time in GISD, you will need an online pre-enrollment application.
*Students who wish to enroll at Richarte High School need to complete a separate online application prior to submitting their new student enrollment application.
You will also need to provide a copy of the following documents to the campus registrar as part of your enrollment application:
- Original certified birth certificate
- Social security card (if available)
- Driver's license or photo ID for parent/guardian registering student
- Current immunization record (Click here to review immunization requirements)
- Current proof of residency in GISD (rental agreement, current utility bill in your name (gas, electric, water), property tax statement, signed purchase contract)
- Withdrawal form from previous school district if transferring from a Texas school
- Most recent report card and/or transcripts
- Additional required documentation if applying for pre-kindergarten based on qualifying criteria (see below)
Campus registrars will contact you after you submit the application with any additional questions or documents needed for enrollment. Students new to GISD high schools can also schedule counseling appointments after their enrollment application is approved to review course requests, graduation requirements, and additional information with their counselor.
If you need assistance, have questions about required documents, or have other questions about enrollment, please contact your campus registrar. Elementary and middle school registrars are on break between 6/17/21 and 7/19/21 and will be in contact with parents who submit applications during that time period upon their return to campus. High school registrars are on contract year-round.
All required documents and your completed and approved online enrollment application are due to the campus registrar no later than 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 17th, 2021 in order to attend school on the first day of classes (Thursday, August 19th). Walk-in enrollment is closed on the morning of the first day of school until 1 PM.
