Last Day For Student Re-enollment 2019-2020
All students are expected to complete re-enollment by May 10, 2019.
Our school system uses an online enrollment service called SchoolMint. SchoolMint saves your family information from your current registration and automatically populates many of the required forms, making annual re-enrollment a simple and efficient experience. From your smartphone, use the free SchoolMint app for best results. From your computer, follow this link to re-enroll:https://athenscity.schoolmint.net/signin No codes are necessary for re-enrollment. Help and computers are available Monday-Friday from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm at the Board of Education Central Office. For more information, visit acs-k12.org/enrollment or call 256.233.6600.
