Due to increased enrollment at New Brockton Elementary School and New Brockton High School last year, Coffee County Schools is requesting that parents of students who will be attending either school in the 2019-20 school year fill out a pre-registration application before the summer ends.
According to Superintendent Kevin Killingsworth, the call for pre-registration applications will help Coffee County get an accurate idea of the number of students that will be attending New Brockton schools in the 2019-20 school year. Killingsworth said that increased student numbers will also increase the need for more capital projects, buses and staff to accommodate students.
“To help ensure that our system is prepared to support our students, it is critical that we have accurate counts of students who will be attending either of the New Brockton schools in August 2019,” Killingsworth said. “Our goal is to be ready for an increase in enrollment; therefore, we are encouraging students and their parents/guardians planning to enroll in New Brockton schools for the 2019-20 school year to complete a pre-registration application as soon as possible.”
Killingsworth said that Coffee County Schools encourages parents and students to visit the schools prior to registration; campus tours “may be scheduled by appointment” and an open house is in the works for late July. Killingsworth said an official date for the open house will be announced at a later date.
According to information provided by Coffee County Schools, students entering Kindergarten through sixth grade should visit New Brockton Elementary School at 504 North John Street in New Brockton or call 334-894-6152. Students entering grades 7-12 may visit New Brockton High School at 210 South Tyler Street in New Brockton or call 334-894-2350.
Killingsworth said that though increased enrollment means more hard work, Coffee County Schools is excited to grow and change to meet the future.
“Coffee County Schools is excited about the future of our school system,” Killingsworth said. “We are in the process of expanding opportunities for our students and making plans to further those opportunities in the near future. We are proud of the accomplishments made thus far but know there are areas that we want to continue to grow in and make Coffee County Schools even better.”
