Five-year-old Kindergarten registration dates have been set for children who will be attending the Fond du Lac School District during the 2013-2014 school year. Registration will begin on Monday, April 8, and will continue through Friday, April 12.
Wisconsin statutes state, "Except as provided in s.115.01(2) and s.115.28(8), no child may be admitted to Kindergarten unless he or she is five-years-old on or before Sept. 1, in the year he or she proposes to enter school." Children reaching their fifth birthday after Sept. 1, but on or before Dec. 1 may be admitted to Kindergarten upon Administrative approval according to School Board Policy. Requests for early entrance should be addressed to the Director of Pupil Services at 920-906-6520.
Beginning with the 2012-13 school year, 118.33(6)(cm) prohibits a school board or an independent charter school under Wis. Stat. Sec. 118.40(2r) from enrolling a child in first grade unless the child has completed five-year-old Kindergarten or has received an exemption.
The week of April 8, parents of prospective kindergartners can attend the open registration at the school their child will attend from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Parents are also asked to bring proof of their child's age in the form of a birth certificate or baptismal record when registering. The original document will be returned to you.
