2020-2021 Re-enrollment

Important 2020 – 2021 Re-enrollment Process Updates:

Due to the closure of Drew for the remainder of the school year and Governor Kemp’s order to shelter-in-place, Drew has updated its re-enrollment process for current students re-enrolling for the 2020 – 2021 School Year.  

At this time, to re-enroll for the 2020 – 2021 school year, only the following categories of students will be required to submit current proof-of-residency documents:

  • Students in transition grades (rising 6th and rising 9th grades); and
  • Any student who has moved and requires an address update in our system.

The process for submitting proof-of residents documents is provided in the Instructions for Submitting Current Proof-of-Residency Documents Section near the bottom of this notification.


Families of Students Not in the Above Categories
For parents/guardians of students who do not fall into one of the above categories, there are no next steps to re-enroll your child.  Parents/Guardians who do not fall into of the above categories and have completed the online re-enrollment form for your child will receive an email indicating final re-enrollment status by Friday, May 1, 2020.  

Important Note:  The address of residence for every student in any grade is subject to verification via phone, U.S. mail, home visits and all other legal means by school administration or their designee at any time while a student is enrolled at Drew Charter School.  Also, please be mindful of the important Residency Notice* at the conclusion of this notification.


Updated 2020-2021 Re-enrollment Process:
 
  1. Online re-enrollment form (all rising 1st through 12th graders) 
    All rising 1st through 12th graders were required to submit their online re-enrollment forms by March 31, 2020. Thank you for completing these forms.
     
  2. Submission of current proof-of-residency documents is required for all rising 6th graders, 9th graders, and anyone who moved
    Drew will collect current proof-of-residency documents either electronically by May 1, 2020, or in-person (at a later time) from all rising 6th graders, 9th graders, and any family that has an address update from what Drew previously had on record via the following process. We will notify the enrolling parent/guardians of these students of the need to upload documents via the contact preferences selected in SchoolMint, when completing the online re-enrollment form.
     
  3. Verification of re-enrollment (all rising 1st through 12th graders)
    Once this process is complete, all rising 1st through 12th graders will receive an email indicating final re-enrollment status.                               

Instructions for Submitting Current Proof-of-Residency Documents (by Rising 6th graders, 9th graders or students who have moved):

  • Parents/guardians of rising 6th graders, 9th graders, or of any student who has moved and requires an address update in our system may upload proof-of-residency documents electronically, via the SchoolMint account they created when submitting their student’s online re-enrollment form, by Friday, May 1, 2020.
  • If parents/guardians of rising 6th graders, 9th graders, or of any student who has moved and requires an address update in our system are unable to or choose not to upload documents electronically by this deadline, the school will collect hard copy documents during an alternative in-person re-enrollment window at a later, yet-to-be-determined time.
Regardless of whether you plan to submit your documents online or in-person, if you are the parent/guardian of a rising 6th or 9th grader or your family has moved, we ask that you take the following action:
 

If rising 6th or 9th grade students’ families or families who have moved elect to submit documents electronically, please ensure that uploaded documents are in a format that is legible (PDF preferred). If you are taking a picture of an original document to upload, please make sure it is on a flat surface and that the picture is clear. Drew reserves the right to request hard copy, original versions of any document uploaded electronically.

Please contact us at enrollment@drewcharterschool.org or 404-450-0567 with any questions.  We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding with our process changes.

*Residency Notice
A student’s address will be determined based on the bona fide primary residence of the custodial parent/legal guardian. The address of residence is subject to verification via phone, U.S. mail, home visits and all other legal means by school administration or their designee at any time while a student is enrolled at Drew Charter School.
 

Drew Charter School is part of the Atlanta Public Schools (APS) system. According to its charter agreement, a student must live within the APS district (the City of Atlanta) or be the child of a current full-time employee or Board Member of Drew Charter School in order to attend Drew Charter School. Except as provided for above, children who do not live in the APS district are not eligible to attend Drew Charter School. If you move out of the APS district, your child will no longer be eligible to attend Drew and must be withdrawn. A student admitted under false information is illegally enrolled and will be dismissed from Drew Charter School upon discovery, with the student’s parent/legal guardian subject to criminal charges and civil liability.
