How it works
Whether your child is a returning student from the previous school year or brand new to Green Dot Public Schools Tennessee, his/her enrollment begins by registering online. The enrollment process differs by campus.
Parents, register your students based on their grade level and address:
Please note: if your student's address is in a Tennessee state-designated “Priority School” zone, you automatically qualify to register for Kirby, Wooddale, Hillcrest, and Fairley.
If your student's address is not zoned to a school designated as a “Priority School,” he or she may still be eligible to attend. Please call the school to confirm.
