All students in the Pulaski County Special School District (PCSSD), whether they will be a new or returning student, will have to register at the school they will be attending, according to Assistant Superintendent for Equity and Pupil Services Brenda Bowles.
Bowles said registering is necessary because the district is moving to eschoolPLUS, an upgraded data collection system and student data must be current. PCSSD is piloting the new system at the request of the Arkansas Department of Education, which is funding it.
"We typically have not required all students to register in the past, but it is paramount that they begin to do so this year. Secondary students, for example, will not receive a class schedule if they are not registered," Bowles said.
Bowles said the district has dedicated several days and extended times to make registering easier for parents and guardians. Registration will be the week of July 26, 2010 at the school the student will attend.
The times for registration are as follows: Monday, July 26, through Wednesday, July 28, from 10AM until 6PM and Thursday, July 29, and Friday, July 30, from 9AM until 4PM.
