Kindergarten Registration

 

Beginning a journey, building a foundation

New registration options for 2015-16 add convenience for families
Kindergarten registration for the 2015-16 school year began April 20, and the City School District of Albany has put in place additional options to make registration easier for families.

 

If your child currently is enrolled in a prekindergarten program in one of the district's 12 elementary schools, your child will automatically be registered for kindergarten in the district for next school year.

  • Students in pre-K at the three magnet schools (Albany School of Humanities [ASH], Montessori Magnet School, and Thomas O’Brien Academy of Science and Technology [TOAST]) will continue to attend kindergarten at the same school.

  • Students who attend pre-K in their catchment zone (neighborhood school) also will be automatically enrolled and continue in the same school.

  • Students who attend pre-K outside their catchment zone (neighborhood school) automatically will be registered to attend kindergarten in their neighborhood school based on the current home address on file.

  • Registration is not automatic for students who attend pre-K in a program outside of one of the district’s 12 elementary schools. If your child is in one of these community-based pre-K programs not located in one of our schools, you must register your child for kindergarten. Paperwork will be available at your child’s pre-K location.

If your child is not currently enrolled in pre-K in one of our 12 elementary schools, be sure to register. Screening for all new enrollees will take place in late June and early July. New families will be contacted to set up an appointment.

 

In an effort to make the process more accessible, families had the option to fill out and turn in registration forms at any of our 12 elementary schools through Friday, April 24. Registrations will continue to be accepted at Central Registration from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, on an ongoing basis. Click the highlighted text to find out documents you need to register your child.

 

Students who live further than 1.5 miles from school can receive transportation. This will not happen automatically. Please fill out a request for transportation when they are distributed later this spring and return it to an elementary school or Central Registration.

 

For those who wish to open-enroll at a school outside your catchment zone, you may fill out a request form. Please note though that no decision regarding open enrollment will be made until late summer at the earliest.

 

Pre-K registration for 2015-16 continues. There are a number of open seats across the district for next year. Due to the limited number of seats available, all pre-K registrations must happen at Central Registration. If a seat is available, you will be able to register. If a seat is not available, you will be able to join the waiting pool for subsequent lottery drawings.

 

If you have any questions about pre-K or kindergarten registration, please call Central Registration at 475-6125 or any of our elementary schools.

 

The district gives families the option to enroll a child in a school other than their neighborhood zone school. For more information about this open enrollment option, click the highlighted text or call the district's Pupil Personnel Office at 475-6130.
