• Alert:

    Governor Lee has closed school buildings for students physically to return for the remainder of this semester. However, the school system will continue online learning throughout the last instructional day of the school year. ECS will receive guidance as the COVID task force meets in the days to come. The feeding programs will continue as scheduled. We will be sending out information about other events important to parents and students early next week.

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 online in the Cyclone Connection like applicants in grades K-8. 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. Rising freshmen who have not already picked up their registration packet should pick one up from the EHS counseling office.

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.
