NEW THIS YEAR
Due to the number of late registrations of kindergarten students in the 2016-2017 school year, there was a significant delay in finalizing our kindergarten classes and classroom placements; therefore, if you currently have a child enrolled in a Quakertown school, but have NOT registered their sibling for kindergarten by June 1st, 2017, the kindergarten student will not be guaranteed a spot in their neighborhood school for the 2017-2018 kindergarten year. Please register early to ensure that your child attends kindergarten in the same school as their siblings and neighborhood friends.
The initial screening for the Full Day Kindergarten program will be held during the kindergarten registration appointment in March. Please plan to bring your child to that appointment with you. All registered Kindergarten students will be assigned to an AM or PM half day class in June, 2017. Any student that is being considered for the Full Day Kindergarten program will be asked to attend an additional assessment in early August, 2017 to determine kindergarten placement. Invitations to the Full Day Kindergarten Program will be made by mid-August, 2017.
**Please follow the instructions below to schedule a registration appointment and complete the online portion of the registration.**
