NEW STUDENTS TO WILSON COUNTY
New Student Enrollment Introduction
Welcome to Wilson County Schools!
We are pleased to offer Online Enrollment for parents/guardians to enroll K-12 students new to our district (this is not for current students transferring to another Wilson County School). You should find this to be an easy process that you can complete at your convenience from anywhere. All you need is an active email address and access to the Internet.
If you need assistance determining which school your student is zoned to attend for the current 2021-2022 school year, use the Bus Route Look-Up tool. If you need additional assistance for bus routes, click on Let’s Talk and submit a request to transportation.
- If you have a current student that will be changing schools due to the normal grade progression promotion, your student will automatically move to the zoned school and considered a returning student. Online Registration must be completed for the school your student will be enrolled for the 2021-2022 school year. All returning and pre-enrolled students must update information and complete additional required forms for the 2021-2022 School Year through Skyward Family Access beginning July 8, 2021. Student schedules will be available in Family Access when released from your school, but will not be accessible if registration has not been completed. If you need assistance with your login to Family Access, please contact your zoned school.
- If your child was previously enrolled (currently withdrawn) in a Wilson County School and will be returning to the district, please don’t complete the online application process. You should already have a Family Access account therefore; you need to contact your zoned school for instructions.
