Columbus City School's Central Enrollment Center is a "one-stop shop" for parents and guardians enrolling their children in CCS.
Columbus City Schools has created the SpeedyPass Online Registration system, where parents and guardians can complete registration in their home, office, or at a remote location with computer access like the Columbus Metropolitan Library.  Once parents complete the online registration via SpeedyPass, they will receive an email that provides direction on scheduling an appointment to meet with an enrollment specialist at the Central Enrollment Center to present documents needed to complete enrollment.
See the section, Documents for Enrollment, for a list of the documents needed to enroll your child in Columbus City Schools.
