Rising 10th, 11th, 12th Grade Registration Documents


Tuition/County Students

Prospective Tuition/County Applicants in Grades 9-12

New tuition applicants at the high school will not apply in the Cyclone Connection. New tuition applicants and new Elizabethton High School students (not transferring from T. A. Dugger Jr. High) and their parents should make plans to attend one of two tuition registration dates at the high school: May 30 or May 31 from 8:30-11:00 a.m. or 12:30-3:00 p.m.  The final day of registration for new students will be August 1, 2019. 

Appointments are not necessary for these dates; however, parents and students should come and allow at least 45 minutes for the registration process. The applying student or parent should pick up and complete a registration packet in advance of the registration dates. These will be available beginning March 8.

Rising freshmen will pick up their registration packet at the CTE Open House and 8th grade Parent Night, which will take place March 7 at 6 p.m. for 8th grade students transferring from T. A. Dugger and for new tuition students going into 9th grade. If they cannot attend, registration packets will be available at the EHS counseling office or from Tracy Hayes at TAD for TAD 8th graders.

On registration days, students and parents are required to bring: the colored registration form (all sections completed), birth certificate, social security card, current TN immunization (see packet for proper form), 2 proofs of residency (see registration packet for the only documents accepted), and custodial documents.  Also, current high school students will need to withdraw from their current school after their last day of class.

If the new student receives special education services, forms will only be collected by the counseling office, and a future appointment will be made for the special education department.

Returning Tuition/County Students in Grades 9-12

Parents of returning tuition students will update forms in Skyward just like returning city students (as described above). Continued enrollment as a county/tuition student is assumed unless the school is notified otherwise.

TN Graduation Requirements

TN High School Diploma Project


Civics Assessment

Per state law (T.C.A. § 49-6-408A), students must participate in the United States citizenship and immigration test during the student’s high school career. All public high school students, including the class of 2017, are expected to participate in the civics test; however, a passing grade is not a requirement for graduation. Schools in which all seniors earning a regular diploma also earn a passing grade (70 percent or higher) on the U.S. civics test will be recognized by the department as a U.S. Civics All-Star School. For more information from the state, click here. For more information about the test and its administration at EHS, contact EHS teacher Joe Diaz.
