SDOC Online Student Registration Now Open

Yellow circle with text that says Register Now!

The School District of Oconee County has partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service, to allow families to complete and sign enrollment/registration forms for students online.  Parents will also be able to use their FinalForms account to update student information, such as contact or medical information, throughout the school year.  

Parents of returning students that have an email address on file will receive a confirmation email from FinalForms in the next 2-3 days with the information needed to begin registration. The email will contain directions on how to create an account and on how to register each of their students. FinalForms has provided a Returning Student Parent Playbook to help parents with account creation and registration. Parent’s that do not receive an email may call their student’s school beginning Monday, July 26th to begin the registration process.  More information can be found on the ENROLL page ofthe district website.

Students new to the School District of Oconee County may visit the NEW STUDENTS tab located on the ENROLL page of the district website.  Please note: students who have attended an SDOC school in the past but were not enrolled with the district on the last day of the 2020-2021 school year will be considered a new student. 

Many schools will be holding in-person registration events to allow parents to complete other important “beginning of the year” tasks. A complete list of 2021-2022 Registration Dates is available on the ENROLL page of the district website.

SDOC 4K & Kindergarten Staggered Start

Children in the School District of Oconee County 4K and Kindergarten classes will begin school on a staggered start for the 2021-2022 school year.  The purpose of a staggered start is to allow students who are in the early stages of experiencing school to be exposed to school-wide and classroom expectations in a small group. This transition will allow for the first day with their entire class to operate smoothly. A staggered start will also allow the teacher to begin building relationships with his/her students and complete required beginning of the year assessments with each student in a more manageable environment.

From Monday, August 16 through Thursday, August 19th, 4K and Kindergarten students will attend just one day of school.  Then, all students will attend school on Friday, August 20th.  Teachers will contact parents/guardians to schedule what day of the week their child will attend school, schedule parent conferences for 4K students, and review other details about the staggered start procedures. If you have any further questions please contact your child’s school.

SDOC Website 

The district will launch a new website platform in early July.  Website addresses, such as www.sdoc.org, will not change but you will find a whole new look upon navigating to our sites.  The new design is based on survey feedback we received from stakeholders.  You will likely see some pages still “under construction” but we are excited to bring our students, families, and community a much more user-friendly platform and look forward to adding features, including an SDOC Mobile app, throughout the fall. 

Student Registration

Student registration will open in late July.  Returning students with an email on file in Powerschool will receive an email with information needed to register. If you do not receive an email for your returning student by the last week in July, please reach out to your student’s school.  New students should refer to the “Enroll” page on the district website. 

Student Meals

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced that ALL STUDENTS will receive free breakfast and lunch for the 2021-2022 school year.  Students will be allowed to get one "reimbursable" school meal (entree, fruits & vegetables, milk) for no cost.  Students will be responsible for the cost of any additional food purchased.  It is VITAL for families to still complete the Free/Reduced Meal Application. The district receives significant federal and state funding that is based on the number of families that qualify for free or reduced cost meals.   These funds provide extra services for our students and families.  We face the possibility of losing HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS in funding if families do not complete an application. Applications for the 2021-2022 school year may be submitted beginning July 1, 2021.  Paper forms will be available at all school locations and the district office in both English and Spanish.  You may submit the APPLICATION ONLINE as well.
