    KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION for 2024-2025 Will Take Place in March 2024

    Please review the information on this page and call your school to make an appointment to register in March.

    There are TWO WAYS you can fill out the registration forms (See Below). Our online pre-registration system streamlines the process and will save you time during your kindergarten registration appointment.

    Regardless of which way you choose, you will still need to come to a registration appointment in person with your child to submit your documents and proofs of residency. Any of the documents you see below can be downloaded from this site or picked up at any elementary school.

    Requirements for students who attend a Jackson School District Preschool program:

    You do not need to fill out the online registration forms that you completed when you registered for preschool. However, you DO need to call and make a registration appointment to:

    • Show proof of 5-year-old immunizations (if your child is not yet five, you will submit these after they reach the age of 5);
    • Re-submit four proofs of residency for review.
    • Complete and submit a Home Language Survey: English version or Spanish version

    Requirements for students who are NOT currently in our district preschool program and are registering for Kindergarten

    The forms are available in the Kindergarten Registration Packets linked below.
