Kindergarten Registration

  • school bus

     

    Kindergarten registration for the upcoming school year is typically held in February. Registration is held at the CORE Center and each school has a designated day of the week where parents can register their child, meet school officials, ask questions, and have their child's school photo taken. 

     

    To expedite the registration process, parents are encouraged to complete the New Student Registration Packet (see links below) ahead of time and bring it to their school's designated registration day along with required documents, such as proof of residency and their child's birth certificate. For details about kindergarten eligibility and the required documents, see below. Note: Fees are not due at the time of registration.

    Kindergarten Eligibility/Required Documents:

    A child turning (5) years old on or before September 1st of any school year has historically been a requirement for kindergarten. Parents interested in enrolling a child not (5) years old on or before this date should make a request to the principal of their child's school before April 1st (for consideration for the following school year). The exception may apply for those students whose parents seek to have their child skip kindergarten for early entrance into first grade. In those cases, referrals should be by June 1st at the latest. Requests after either of these deadlines will not be considered. For additional information about the grade level acceleration process, parents or guardians may contact the school's principal.

     

    The following documents are required in order to register a child for kindergarten:

    • BIRTH CERTIFICATE. An original or certified copy of a birth certificate is required per state law. Hospital certificates are not acceptable.
    • PROOF OF RESIDENCY. This is required for ALL incoming kindergarten students regardless of whether or not there is a sibling already attending school in District 47.

    NOTE: If you do not have the documents noted above, you will not be able to register your child for kindergarten.
