Registering Your Child for a CCSD School

Out of County Residents/Students: Please be advised, pursuant to CCSD Policy JFAB - Nonresident Students, JFAB - R (its Administrative Rule), Policy DFG - Tuition Income, and State law, any student residing outside of Charleston County is required to own property in their name, with tax assessed value of $300.00 or more, within Charleston County, in order to retain a seat they may be offered. Out of county students, except for those specifically exempted, will be required to pay tuition to attend a CCSD school.  Proof of property ownership by an out of county student is due to the Office of General Counsel.

If a parent fails to provide verifiable proof that the student owns property within Charleston County by June 30, 2018, the student will lose the seat they may have been offered as of July 1, 2018, the day after the deadline.  There will be no recourse for reconsideration.  The seat offered to an out of county student who fails to provide proof of property ownership will be offered to another student on the waiting list.
