Countywide Kindergarten Registration Procedure
About Kindergarten Registration
JCPS has implemented an online registration process for all students. This new process has increased our efficiency and effectiveness in collecting the required data. This process will not prevent the need for a face-to-face meeting at your child's school.
If you do not have access to a computer or tablet, you should plan on utilizing the school's technology on the day of your face-to-face meeting. An email account will be required for online registration. If you do not have an email account, you will have an opportunity to create one from the online registration form.
Children must be five years old on or before August 31, 2021, to enroll. Online registration will take approximately 30 - 40 minutes.
It is important for parents or guardians to choose the school that serves their address to register their children.
