NEXT YEAR 2017-2018 KINDERGARTEN & NEW FIRST GRADE
- Kindergarten Eligibility: Children must be five (5) years of age on or before September 1, 2017.
- AM/PM Placement: Kindergarten students will be assigned to either an A.M. or P.M. session. Placement in a session will be determined by the number of kindergarten sections in a particular school, as well as attendance areas and bus routes. Parents submitting a written request for either A.M. or P.M. kindergarten session are advised that the School District cannot guarantee these requests will be granted. Every effort is made to accommodate requests; however, the number of requests for our A.M. session typically outnumbers our available space. Decisions regarding which session a child is assigned will be communicated to parents in July, once all registrations have been completed, the number of class sections per school has been determined, and transportation routes for the new school year have been developed. Parents who have children eligible to attend kindergarten or first grade for the 2017-18 school year should contact their local elementary school (a list is at the bottom of this page).
- First Grade Eligibility: Children should be six (6) years of age on or before September 1, 2017. A child may be admitted early to first grade if he/she will be six (6) years of age on or before February 1, 2018 and the child meets the readiness criteria for first grade entrance as determined by a Certified School Psychologist and the school's Instructional Support Team. Please refer to our First Grade Early Admissions Policy (PDF) for more information. Children who are not presently enrolled in the district kindergarten program, but will attend first grade next school year, should also be registered at this time.
- Immunizations Policy (PDF): Pennsylvania statewide regulations regarding immunizations have changed substantially, particularly in regards to when students must have their immunizations complete
in order to attend school. This change impacts all schools in the state, not just those in Council Rock. Please contact your child’s school nurse with any questions related to these changes.
- Elementary Class Size Policy:
(PDF) Administration Regulation 126.1 states “All new registrants will be guaranteed a space in their home school if they have completed the registration process for the next school year by June 1st.”
- Please review our Parent Handbook (PDF) and Student Booklet (PDF).
