Registration for new students at Washington County public schools, including kindergarten and prekindergarten, is Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at each county school.
"My primary concern is that people know the date and that they show up with the right documents in hand," said Donna Messina, spokeswoman for the Washington County Board of Education.
Beginning this year, parents or guardians must provide proof of residency in order to register their children.
"A driver's license cannot be used to prove residency. This is a state requirement," Messina said. Instead, she said, parents should bring a property tax bill, utility bill, rental lease, mortgage statement or credit card bill.
