Kindergarten Registration begins November 1st for Jefferson County Public Schools. Here is everything you need to know to start the process:
Who is eligible:
Any child who turns 5 on or before August 1 can enroll in full-day kindergarten beginning in the 22-23 school year. Children must enroll in kindergarten by the time they are 6, since under Kentucky state law, all children must be enrolled in school between the ages of 6 and 18.
Can I register my child early for kindergarten?
Children who have mastered kindergarten benchmarks before age 5, and who turn 5 years old between August 2 and October 1, may be eligible for early admission to kindergarten. The deadline to submit the Early Admission to Kindergarten application is March 1, 2022. After the March 1, 2022 deadline, there will not be any opportunities to petition the district for Early Admission to Kindergarten for the 2022-23 school year.
