Grant County Schools is excited to announce Kindergarten Registration for the Class of 2030! We are taking appointments now for registration dates in March, 2017. We cannot wait to welcome our newest students into our schools!
Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, students must turn five (5) on or before August 1, 2017, for admission to kindergarten. This means students must have been born on or before August 1, 2012, to enroll. This change was mandated by state law (KRS 158.030). KRS 158.030 also includes a provision allowing parents of students born after August 1, 2012, to petition for early entrance to Kindergarten. For more information about early entrance, please see below.
KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION / SCREENING EVENTS:
Parents of students who will be 5 on or before August 1, 2017, are asked to call their child's anticipated school for an appointment as shown below. This year's registration will include various screenings, so parents should plan to bring their child for an appointment that will last approximately 1 to 1-1/2 hour.
