Kindergarten Placement

Kindergarten enrollment and placement is in accordance with board policy 501.15.
Please note that kindergarten registration materials will be available on the district website or paper copies may be obtained at the district office. If registrations exceed capacity, parents will be asked to voluntarily transfer to a school that has available space. If not enough voluntary transfers can be identified, students will be placed in the neighborhood school based on the following sorts:
(1) kindergarten registration materials as defined on the district website turned in by the specified due date
(2) siblings already in the neighborhood elementary
(3) those students living closest to the neighborhood school within the defined boundary limits.
Those students who are not registered for kindergarten during the registration period will be placed at their neighborhood school if possible. If that school is full, they will be placed at a school that has space available and put on a call back list according to the date of registration.
