New option for BCPS families: outdoor enrollment

Many parents, caregivers will be able to enroll children in schools, verify residency, or submit other paperwork in person and outside

TOWSON, MD. – Many parents and caregivers who need to enroll their children in Baltimore County Public Schools – or renew shared domicile status or verify residency – will have the opportunity to do so in person.

Most BCPS schools will offer outdoor registration opportunities through Friday, Sept. 18. Parents and caregivers can visit the websites of their children’s schools for dates, times, and additional information.

“We know that this is a challenging time for families,” said Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams, “and we want to do whatever we can to make things easier. While online enrollment has been – and continues to be – available, we know that many parents prefer in-person registration, so we wanted to make that available, too.”

Following are the documents needed to enroll a child in BCPS for the first time, to renew shared domicile status, or to re-verify residency (which families must do as students enter Grades 6 and 9):
