KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION: Opens February 21, 2023
When does Kindergarten Registration begin and how do I register my child? Enrollment begins on February 21, 2023, and can only be completed online using PowerSchool. Click here to access Enrollment Express. The actual enrollment process is very similar to any new student entering Granville Schools even if the family already has a child in Granville Schools. Specific steps in that process using Enrollment Express can be found here. What is the age requirement for registering for kindergarten? Your child must be 5 years old by September 30, 2023. If your child turns 5 after the deadline, and you believe they are ready for kindergarten, you may request early entrance testing. Your request can be sent to Alesha Haybin at [email protected].
Do I need to come to a building as part of registration? No; however, you must upload certain items and documents in Enrollment Express.
What information do I need to complete to be “fully registered?” Registration information can be found here. What if I have questions while completing registration? All questions regarding registration should be directed to Kelli Small at [email protected].
How will full-day placement be decided? Placement in full day for the 2023-2024 school year will be determined through a lottery. Any registration for full day completed by 11:59 PM on March 10 will be included in the lottery. Children registered for full day after March 10, or who did not get placed in the lottery process, will be added to the waitlist.
How will students be chosen from the waitlist if additional full day spots are open? An additional lottery will be completed as new spots are available.
What is the cost for full-day kindergarten? Full-day includes a $400 per month tuition. The deposit is due at the time of screening (see below) and will cover tuition for August and September. The full-day kindergarten charge is waived if your family qualifies for free or reduced lunches. There is no charge for half-day kindergarten.
When will I be notified if my child is in full-kindergarten? Families will be notified of placement in full day by April 14. This notification will come through PowerSchool.
How will I know if my child is AM or PM half day? Several variables, including transportation, determine AM or PM placement. Families will be notified of placement by the end of June.
Will there be an option for online kindergarten? At this time, our plan is to have only in-person school for the 2023-2024 school year with the protocols necessary to do so.
When is kindergarten screening? Screenings will be held May 31, June 1 and June 2 at Granville Elementary School. All safety protocols that are currently in place for in-person school will be maintained during screening. At this time, there is no online option for kindergarten screening. A link to register for a screening date will be provided in the near future on the district website.
How do I stay informed as information is released and shared? The best way to stay informed is sign up for the GES Family Newsletter. You can do that using this link. Information is also shared on school social media sites. Be certain the email address in Enrollment Express is one that is checked regularly.
Where can I find more information about kindergarten or touring the building? More information about the kindergarten experience will be shared during screening. Self-guided tours will also be available during that time.
What if I have questions that are specific to kindergarten and not just registration? Questions about kindergarten or school operations can be directed to our school secretary, Kim Border, at [email protected].
