Enrollment Information

Enrolling early helps District planning

Parents can enroll a child in the Richland School District by going directly to the school in their attendance zone. Parents will need to show the child's immunization record and also show a document which verifies their address such as a utility bill, rental agreement, or purchase agreement showing date of possession. A school secretary will then be able to process the registration request.

We encourage parents to enroll their children anytime after March 1. Early enrollment helps the District plan more effectively for the number of teachers that will be needed at each school in the fall.

If you have general enrollment questions, please call the Richland School District Administration Building at 967-6003.

Kindergarten registration opens March 2nd

Beginning March 2nd, parents in the Richland School District may register their children for kindergarten at their neighborhood elementary schools. We encourage parents 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.

The child's state certified birth certificate (not the hospital certificate) and a Washington state immunization record listing dates that shots were received are required for registration. Parents will also need to show a document which verifies their address such as a utility bill or rental agreement. To be eligible for kindergarten, the child must be five years of age on or before August 31. For more information, call 967-6003.

For students 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. For information regarding the test, fees and registration, please contact the Assessment Office at 967-6025 or via email at toni.koller@rsd.edu.
