MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Shelby County Schools new online-only school registration process is off to a successful start.
The new system processed 1,000 transfers without any problems within just five minutes. Two days into the registration process and SCS says 8,200 students have successfully registered--more than 3,600 of those registered for optional schools.
This was the first year that all of SCS's registration, including optional schools, was available online.
The change eliminated the need for parents to camp out overnight in the cold to get their children into the school of their choice.
