2021 - 2022 Open Enrollment Virtual Lottery

Due to the on-going COVID -19 pandemic, The Main Street Academy's Open Enrollment Lottery was held virtually, with no in-person attendance, on February 23, 2021. Click here to view the lottery recording. Prospective households that applied for admission to The Main Street Academy prior to the lottery will receive an email on March 1, 2021 for notification of acceptance or waitlist status. You may also check your admission status via your SchoolMint account. Contact TMSA's Data Manager, LaShonda Liptrot, for questions or concerns. 
2021 - 2022 Intent to Return (Re-Enrollment) 
The intent to return/re-enrollment window for existing TMSA households began at midnight on January 18, 2021 and closed at 11:59 p.m. on January 29, 2021.  Upon completing the intent to return form via SchoolMint, parents/guardians must submit two proofs of residency reflecting their name and current residential address. The first proof may be a driver's license with current address, lease statement, mortgage statement, tax bill, or banking statement. The second proof of residency must be a current water or electric bill (no gas bills). It's imperative for parents/guardians to adhere to the re-enrollment window to ensure their student's seat for the 2021 - 2022 academic school year.
TMSA parents and guardians, please complete and submit the application, inclusive of uploads, on a desktop or computer-based device, not a mobile device.
Update Contact Information in Infinite Campus 
It's very important for all existing TMSA parents and guardians to update their contact information, specifically the current phone number and email address, in the Infinite Campus portal. Any changes in residency must be shared with TMSA's Data Manager, LaShonda Liptrot, with two proofs of residency. If parents/guardians experience an issue accessing Infinite Campus, please email  LaShondra Liptrot to obtain the activation key. 
What is Re-Enrollment?
Re-Enrollment is the process by which The Main Street Academy (TMSA) indicates to current students and parents our desire to continue our relationship for the upcoming school year. In order for your child to continue their education with TMSA, each child must be "re-enrolled" through our online process. There are a limited number of seats available in each grade level, so we must confirm your child’s return during this Re-Enrollment period. If you do not confirm by the deadline, your child’s seat cannot be guaranteed. TMSA's re-enrollment process begins every January. 

Proof of Residency
For Re-Enrollment address verification, TWO documents, indicating residence in the attendance area must be provided.
Residence Requirement
In February 2015, the Fulton County Schools (FCS) district revised its School Admission Policy (SAP) for Residence Verification. The policy no longer requires families to complete an Affidavit of Residence for every year of student enrollment. Instead, two proofs of residence (from the district's approved list below) must be provided upon re-enrollment into The Main Street Academy.
One current water or electric bill (per Fulton County Schools, TMSA cannot accept gas bills) AND one residence document from the list below. Both documents must contain the parent or guardian's name and current address:
    • Copy of home mortgage bill
    • Current bank statement
    • Current paycheck
    • Valid driver's license/state ID
    • Copy of home sale contract current HOA bill
    • Section Eight/HUD Housing Department current apartment/house lease
    • Homeowner's/renter's insurance registration card
How to add a new student?
Please list the name and grade of the prospective student. Listing the student does not secure a seat. You must complete an Open Enrollment application during the Open Enrollment period which occurs in February.
Enrollment preferences are given based on our Charter Application and Georgia State Law, to:
    • A sibling of a student enrolled in the school
    • A student whose parent or guardian is a member of TMSA's governing board or is a full-time teacher, professional or other TMSA employee

If you have any questions or concerns about The Main Street Academy's admissions process please LaShonda Liptrot, TMSA Data Manager.
