KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION
FOR SCHOOL YEAR 2019-2020 

A child must be 5 years old before July 01 to enter Kindergarten



Jefferson County School policy allows limited early acceptance for some children born between July 01 and July 15th if they meet eligibility requirements.

To be eligible for early Kindergarten entrance, the child must score at or above the ninety-fifth percentile on a standardized comprehensive measure of developmental skills when compared to age norms appropriate to a child who would be 5 years old prior to the July 01 deadline.  This assessment will be administered by qualified Jefferson County Schools personnel.

To request an early admission test for a child born between those dates, please complete the application form HERE, or contact the Pupil Services Department at 304-728-9236.

Programmatic or Curriculum questions concerning Kindergarten should be addressed to Dr. Sherry Hetzel at 304-728-9239.
