DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

As the school year approaches, Dougherty County School System officials are reminding parents to register their children for school. 

With all of the realignment that has happened, school officials said it's important your child is registered at their correct school. 

If you are not registered you need to go to the school with a few forms. 

Those are for immunizations, eye, ear and dental evaluations as well as proof of residency forms.

"It's much better to go ahead and get involved with the registration process now rather than wait until the last minute," explained DCSS school spokesperson J.D. Sumner. "Lines might start to get long and there is information for parents as far as school supply lists."

Since there are many changes for middle and high school students, the system is offering a special two-day centralized registration. 

It will be on July 25 and July 26 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. in the Albany High School cafeteria. 

There will be representatives from all the middle and high schools there.
