    NEW! 2021-2022 Kindergarten Registration Will Take Place by Appointment

    During February and March 2021

    Please begin NOW by filling out the Online Pre-Registration Form

    and Call for a Registration Appointment

    Once registration opens, 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 Pre-K program (either Pre-School Disabled or our tuition-based Pre-School Inclusion program):

    You do not need to fill out the online registration forms that you completed when you registered for Pre-School. However, you DO need to call and make a registration appointment for February or March and bring your child to Kindergarten Registration to:

    • Submit a new physical examination form;
    • Submit a new dental examination form;
    • 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.

    The forms above are available in the Kindergarten Registration Packet Links Below.

    Note: You can use the forms below if you are registering for either the current year, or the next school year.

Option 1: Online Pre-Registration

Option 2: Traditional Registration Forms

Age Requirements

  • In order to be registered for Kindergarten, children must be five years of age on or before October 1 of a given school year. There are no exceptions to this age requirement. Only an original Birth Certificate with a raised seal or a valid passport are accepted as proof of age. Baptismal or hospital certificates are not accepted.
