LITTLE ROCK, AR (News release) - New student registration for the Pulaski County Special School District (PCSSD) is Jan. 27 through Feb. 7.
Those who must register are pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students and those new to the district. This year, due to desegregation requirement changes, there will be no magnet school or Majority-to-Minority (M-to-M) applications accepted. Students currently attending a school on a magnet or M-to-M permit will be able to remain at that school.
According to the district’s spokesperson, Deborah Roush, “Pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and elementary students register at their zoned school. Secondary students register at regional hub locations.” Those addresses are listed below.
Roush 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.”
She said the district also offers pre-kindergarten and extended-day programs.
To register a student, Roush said parents or guardians need to present proper identification, which includes a birth certificate or a registrar statement, baptismal certificate, passport, affidavit or military identification, along with immunization records and social security card.
Proof of residence is also necessary, which requires a current utility bill (gas, water or electric), a Little Rock Air Force Base housing verification form, home purchase closing papers or lease agreement. (Pre-k requires additional documentation for enrollment. Please contact Adkins Pre-k School at (501) 982-3117 for more information.)
