Kindergarten Registration Information:

Beginning March 2, parents in the Richland School District may register their children for kindergarten at their neighborhood elementary schools.  Registration will continue through the spring.

The child's state certified birth certificate and an immunization record listing dates that shots were received are required for registration as well as proof of address (i.e. utility bill, rental agreement).  To be eligible for kindergarten, the child must be five years of age on or before August 31, 2015.  For more information, call 967-6003.

Parents are encouraged to enroll their children as early as possible.  Early enrollment helps the District plan more effectively for the number of kindergarten teachers that will be needed at each school in the fall.

For children who turn five between September 1 and December 1, but who are ready socially, emotionally and intellectually for kindergarten, early entrance testing is offered once a year, in mid-August.  The test registration deadline is July 31, 2015.  For information regarding the test, fees and registration, please contact the Assessment Office at 967-6025 or via email at toni.vonderhulls@rsd.edu.
