HOW TO REGISTER:
Bowling Green City Schools is excited to announce that we are moving to an online student enrollment and registration platform called FinalForms. Parents will now use FinalForms to complete and sign enrollment, back-to-school, and athletic forms for your students. FinalForms saves information from year-to-year and pre-populates student information wherever possible, so parents will not enter the same information twice. Parents can review and update their information at any time and will be required to sign school forms once per year and after any update.
We are currently only enrolling Preschool and Kindergarten students online for the 2023-24 school year. The enrollment process will involve both online forms and paper forms.
1) On your phone, tablet or computer, go to: https://bowlinggreen-oh.finalforms.com/
2) Create a New Parent account (If you already have an account for your student athletes, simply click on Parent Login.)
3) Complete the information about *you* on the Parent/Guardian Registration screen and click on Register.
4) Check your email for a Confirmation message from FinalForms and click on the account confirmation link to create your password.
5) Add a student for Next Year (2023-24) and select the grade level they will be in for the fall.
6) Complete the questions about your student. Note: Please leave the student email address blank.
7) Prepare the paper documents that are collected and print the red link files to complete on paper. These paper items will be provided to the Registrar. Note: Returning Preschoolers must complete all red linked documents except the Child History Form and the Child Medical Statement.
8) Sign the bottom of the form by entering your name and clicking Submit. Complete all of the pink highlighted online forms. When all of the forms have turned green, you are done.

Ohio Department of Education informational links for parents regarding Kindergarten Readiness and Screening:
Residents of a different school district who would like attend BG Schools, MUST FIRST register their child with that school district. This applies even if you have child(ren) already attending through the inter-district open enrollment process at BGCS. No exceptions. You will be notified if your request is accepted in August.
