Spring Kindergarten Registration for elementary schools
Kindergarten registration for Albany County School District #1 elementary schools (including rural schools) will be held Monday, April 20 – Friday, April 24, 2015, during regular school hours. Kindergarten registration is not available online. Please register at the school nearest your child’s home.
All parents who have a child who will be five years old on or before September 15, 2015, may register for kindergarten classes during this week. If desired, boundary exception requests may be obtained at neighborhood schools.
Parents will need to bring a birth certificate and the record of childhood immunizations. Children entering kindergarten will be required to have their immunizations up to date prior to the start of school. The required immunization form can be picked up at the school or any physician’s office.
Kindergarten screening appointments will be offered at the time of registration. Screenings will be held the week of Tuesday, August 4 – Thursday, August 6, 2015, from 1:00 – 3:30 p.m., and on Friday, August 7, 2015, from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon at Spring Creek Elementary School. Screenings are by appointment only, made at the time of registration.
Enrollment in the Step Ahead summer transition program for children entering kindergarten is also available at the time of registration. If your child will be attending the Step Ahead program, a kindergarten screening appointment is not necessary; the screening will be conducted as part of the program.
Screening is done by Albany County School District #1 personnel. There is no cost for the screening. The screening looks at many aspects of a child’s readiness for school in the areas of reading, early number knowledge, speech and language, and social/emotional development.
For more information or questions you might have regarding the registration process, please contact the school nearest your home. Registration will be offered at Indian Paintbrush, Slade, Spring Creek, Beitel, Centennial, Linford, Harmony, Rock River, and Valley View.
