REGISTRATION 1ST-6TH GRADE for the 2020-2021 School Year
Students previously enrolled in Baldwin County Schools receive an online enrollment code at the end of the school year, usually provided with their final report card. The online enrollment code will be used to enroll students at the new Belforest Elementary School. 2 Proofs of Residency must be provided in person to the school office to verify residency in the new school zone. With the school presently under construction, multiple announcements will be made to communicate when and where residency proofs need to be presented.
When a student is withdrawing from school, a transfer slip is prepared for enrolling in another school. These may be obtained by contacting the school office. The school clerk or registrar will prepare withdrawal documentation.
