Registration for Pre-K
Alabama’s nationally recognized First Class Pre-K programs now accept pre-registration applications for the 2023-2024 school year. To participate, each child must provide a birth certificate documenting that they are four years old (and not yet 5) on or before September 2, 2023, and must also be an Alabama resident (registered with proof of residence such as a current utility bill or copy of a lease or mortgage) throughout enrollment.
The online pre-registration form must be completed in its entirety. The names and addresses entered into the form must be spelled correctly and capitalized where needed. This information will go into our official database precisely as it is entered.
Submitting this form places your child in the Alabama First Class Pre-K random selection process. You will be notified if your child’s name is drawn for a space in a program you have selected. Not selected children will be placed on the waiting list for any future available spaces.
This online pre-registration process requires that each family enter a valid email address to establish an account. If your family has more than one child eligible for Pre-K, only one family account is needed. Families may pre-register children for multiple program locations.
Note that public school programs may restrict eligibility by school zones. Proof of residence (current utility bill or copy of lease or mortgage) is required. It may be uploaded to your pre-registration account or submitted in person directly to each program you pre-register.

ALL STUDENTS THAT ATTENDED IN THE 2022-2023 SCHOOL YEAR WILL RECEIVE A LETTER BY EMAIL
TO REGISTER AS RETURNING STUDENTS IN THE POWERSCHOOL PARENT PORTAL.
Returning Student Registration for the upcoming school year is now available!
Parents: Please use the PowerSchool Parent Portal to access the Registration form for your child(ren) instead of using a snap code as you have in previous years.

Bessemer City Schools is excited to offer our students and parents the opportunity to complete online student registration. When you register your student, please make sure you select the correct link. If you choose the incorrect link, you will have to re-register for the correct school year; data is not transferable.
After completing online student registration, you may be required to visit the school campus and present proof of residency, along with other documents. Your school will notify you if this is needed.
Please have the following documents available prior to beginning your child's registration:
Birth Record (child must turn 5 on or before 9/1/23)
Social Security Card (voluntary)
Proof of Residence (Lease or Deed) with Two Current Utility Bills
Current Immunization Record
