PCSSD new student registration begins Jan 28th

New student registration for the Pulaski County Special School District is scheduled to take place from January 28 to February 8, 2013.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - New student registration for the Pulaski County Special School District (PCSSD) is January 28 through February 8, 2013. On Thursday, January 31, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., all schools in the district will host an open house, and parents or guardians may stop in to tour a school and meet personnel.

Those who must register are pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students and those new to the district. Additionally, registration is required for students coming to PCSSD through the Majority-to-Minority (M-to-M) provision allowing transfers among the North Little Rock School District, Little Rock School District and PCSSD, from a district where a student’s race is in the majority to any school in a district where his or her race is the minority, according to Dr. Brenda Bowles, assistant superintendent for the Division of Equity and Pupil Services.

“Students looking to transfer in from another district to one of our Magnet Schools, or schools that specialize in specific subjects, need to come in and apply, as do those requesting to transfer from another district entirely through the School Choice provision,” Bowles added.

“Pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and elementary students register at the school they will attend. Secondary students register at regional hub locations (see below for addresses), and Magnet School, M-to-M and School Choice permit requests must be made at the district’s central office at 925 E. Dixon Road in Little Rock,” she said.

Bowles said PCSSD has approximately 18,000 students in 37 schools throughout Little Rock, West Little Rock, Maumelle, Sherwood and Jacksonville that offer an array of programs.

“We are proud of the recent improvements we have made to our facilities, and encourage families to visit our schools to see upgrades to technology, media centers and classrooms,” she added.

“Our schools have teachers with upper-level degrees including national board certifications, award-winning fine arts programs, a diverse choice of team sports and exciting clubs and organizations that help build well-rounded students.”

Bowles said the district also offers pre-kindergarten and extended-day programs.

To register a student, Bowles said parents or guardians need to present proper identification, which includes a birth certificate or a registrar statement, baptismal certificate, passport, affidavit, military identification, previous school records, immunization records, transcript or last report card or social security card. Address verification is also necessary, which requires a current utility bill, a Little Rock Air Force Base housing verification form, home purchase closing papers or lease agreements.
