Back to School Need to Know: Register Your Student for 2011-12 School Year

Registration at all Birmingham Public Schools and surrounding private schools begins this week. Here's what you need to know.

The countdown continues for Birmingham students as they prepare to head back to the classroom. This week, all schools in the district, as well as several of Birmingham's private schools, begin the registration process.

School officials ask that parents arrive at registration with all the appropriate forms filled out, including emergency information forms, technology acceptable-use forms, health care plans and permission to administer medicine. All forms, including forms for new students, can be found on the district's website. At registration, parents can also pick up their back-to-school packets, find out which class their child is in and meet the teachers and staff.

Is your child heading back to school this fall? You've gotta register. So here are the registration dates and times you need to know:
