Kindergarten Registration

March 1, 2017: Kindergarten Registration Opens for 2017- 18 School Year

Children must be five years old by September 1, 2017, to enroll for the 2017-18 school year. Register at your "home" school using the enrollment process as soon as possible. Doing so helps schools ensure they have the staff in place to welcome and support your child through a positive and rewarding experience. To confirm your assigned home school of attendance, please call Transportation at 503.844.1123. 


Guidelines for early entry into kindergarten

NOTE: Requests for kindergarten transfers (to attend a school other than your home school) will be considered in August, subject to space availability. Your student must be registered at their home school before submitting a transfer application.

Kindergarten Counts!

The decision to send children to kindergarten is an important one. Real learning happens in kindergarten and is a foundation for students' entire educational experience. Watch the following public service announcements to learn more about how to register your child:

Full-Day Kindergarten
Began 2015-16

In their 2011 session, Oregon legislators passed Senate Bill 248, which opened the door for school districts to offer full-day kindergarten beginning with the 2015-16 school year. A high-quality, full-day program has been proven to be best practice for preparing children for their educational future, helping them develop the necessary skills and habits of successful learners. Previously, schools were only funded to offer half-day kindergarten programs to students. With Title I federal funding, we were able to offer extended days at seven elementary schools; however, these were not true full-day programs. With the state's authorization, we may now offer full-day kindergarten at all of our schools.
