Kindergarten Registration for 2017-18 School Year Now Under Way

Kindergarten Registration for the 2017-18 School Year now Under Way

Transitioning to kindergarten is a big milestone for you and your child. Our caring and professional staff will work in partnership with you to make this important year of your child's academic career as successful as possible.

Parents/guardians of children who are five years old ON OR BEFORE July 31st of this year are encouraged to register your child for kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year.*

When registering your child, you will also set up an appointment for his/her readiness screening, to take place in early-mid March.

Registration takes place in the Kettering City Schools Central Registration, located in the D.L. Barnes/Board of Education Building at 3750 Far Hills Avenue. When you register, please bring the following documents:

  • Birth certificate
  • Parent/Guardian ID
  • Immunization records
  • Proof of Kettering residency (Renters: complete signed rental or lease agreement with a DP&L or Vectren bill. Homeowners: mortgage statement, deed or tax statement.)
  • Complete, time-stamped custody papers if applicable (divorce or legal separation)
  • IEP (if applicable)
  • ETR (if applicable)

If you have questions about registering your child for kindergarten, please feel free to contact  Central Registration at 937-499-1700 or Student Services at 937-499-1433.

* Please note:  The cutoff date of July 31 for kindergarten registration is different from in year's past, when the date was September 30. Extensive research has shown that delaying kindergarten for one year significantly reduces inattention and hyperactivity in a typical child. Likewise, delaying kindergarten for just one year has positive academic outcomes, including a reduced chance that a child will have to repeat the third grade (or be reading below level at third grade) and improved math and reading scores when a child reaches the 10th grade.
