Gibson County Special School District student registration is online!The system is available in English and Spanish. For parents who do not have access to the internet, local school sites and District Office computers are available (check the 'New Enrollment Dates' link for dates). Paper registration forms are available at the District Office upon request.
To register your NEW STUDENT* in the Gibson County Special School District:
Current students should not use this system. Returning students will register through the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
Contact the school to see if they have scheduled new student enrollment registration days during the summer. If they do not, schedule a time to come to the school and start the registration process. You will need the following to register your child(ren):
- Social Security Number (SSN)
- Birth Date
- Proof of residency - see FAQ section for approved proof list
(The school may ask for you to bring another copy to the school if the bill date is not within 30 days of the first day of school)
The on-location pre-registration is not the entire process of enrollment. You are still required to complete the registration within the online portal. The school will give you your login information for Parent Portal to complete this step.
