2014-15 Kindergarten Registration-April 14

The final Kindergarten registration date for the 2014-15 school year has been set for April 14 at the Anderson County Board of Education from 8 AM until 6 PM.  Students are eligible to attend Kindergarten if they turn five-years-old on or before Oct 1, 2014.  Registration is required for all students, including those who are currently attending pre-school at Sparrow Early Childhood Center.

There are currently nine Kindergarten classes at Sparrow Early Childhood Center and three Kindergarten classes at Robert B. Turner.  Students are assigned to a school based on household address.   If parents have childcare in a different district there is an application process for requesting a change.  These are approved on a first come, first served basis and are limited.  Late registration will limit access to possible changes. 

Early registration is also essential for district and school planning.  Each year, staff is assigned to schools based on students who are registered. If for some reason a parent is unable to register their child by April 14, parents must contact the board of education as soon as possible so the district can accommodate to the parent’s schedule. 

The Anderson County Board of Education has determined that full-day kindergarten provides the best opportunity for students to be competitive.  However, the state only funds half-day kindergarten.  Additional funding must come from local funds.  As staff is assigned, there is little room for error financially increasing the importance for parents to participate in early registration.

All those registering will need to provide the following documentation prior to school beginning on August 13:

·      A valid birth certificate,

·      Up-to-date immunizations and physical exams

·      Proof of an eye and dental exam

If you have questions about Kindergarten Enrollment for Kindergarten for next year you may call Derek Shouse at 839-3406.
