Resources & Information for Parents

Back to School 2019


Welcome Parents!

Informed, engaged parents are vital partners in ensuring the success of students and our schools. Rutherford County Schools wants to provide parents with the information they need to help them support their children's education.


The first day of school for 2019-2020 is Tuesday, August 6, 2019 (two-hour day) and the first full day of school is Thursday, August 8, 2019. The full calendar is available here. Registration is held directly at each school. 


High schools keep summer hours Monday through Thursday, typically in the mornings. Elementary and middle schools will reopen the last week of July. Please check their websites or marquee signs for specific registration dates and hours. 

If you can't find what you need on this website, contact the distict's communications department at (615) 893-5812.
