Enrollment Procedure

  • Oliver Elementary School welcomes you to our community. We hope to make the enrollment process as easy as possible for both students and parents, and are available to answer all of your questions. Parents & guardians may use the online registration link on our district website to complete the online enrollment. For more information, please call or visit our front office during school hours. Oliver serves Hurtsboro, Pittsview, Seale and part of Ft. Mitchell. If you live in Ft. Mitchell please check with Transportation to make sure your address is zoned for Oliver prior to completing the registration packet. Parents who do not know their school attendance zone should visit the Russell County School District website. Keep in mind that school offices will be open on a limited basis for summer. Parents are encouraged to submit their registration as soon as possible to avoid delays. 

    In order to enroll, your child must turn five on or before September 1st. In order to be accepted, the following documents must be available:

    • Current Alabama Immunization Form
    • 2 proofs of residence (utility bill, lease, rent receipt, etc.) (If you live with someone else you must also have a notarized residency statement)

    • Social Security Card requested, alternate number will be assigned if not available
    • Picture ID of parent/guardian

    If you are not zoned for Oliver, you may request a transfer. Transfer requests must be submitted and approved prior to registration. All transfer students (students zoned to a different school, but that attend Oliver) must complete the transfer form and be approved each year. You may print the transfer form from the district website. Please turn the completed form into the school office.

Policies & Procedures

  • Our policies and procedures play a critical role in helping every student achieve the highest level of academic success and providing a safe, respectful environment for all members of the Oliver Elementary School Community. It’s important for every member of the school community to read and understand current policies and procedures. Therefore, each family received student handbooks containing school policy and procedure information when they registered. You may also see our school and district policies on the Parent Life webpage. Please make sure you and your child(ren) carefully review the handbooks. Thank you!
