How do I get a class schedule for my High School student?
You will need to make an appointment with your child's guidance counselor, who will meet with you and your child to schedule classes. The counselors will be back in their offices Mid-August. You cannot meet with the counselor until your child’s enrollment has been completed with the central register. To schedule an appointment with a guidance counselor, call:

School districts cannot release official records directly to parents. A parent's signature is needed to release the records to a new district. When you register your child in Bryan City Schools, you will fill out a “Consent to Release Student Records” form. We will fax or mail that form directly to your child's previous school.
How will I know which bus my child will be riding?
After you have completed the enrollment process with our central registrar, you may contact the Transportation Department at 419-636-0504 for information about your child’s bus schedule. The bus routes are usually finalized by mid August.
