Region 12 Schools welcomes you to be part of our educational system, where children thrive in our supportive learning environments.
Kindergarten registration for Regional School District 12 will be open to families in January and continue for the entire month. Per new State legislation, children turning five years of age before September 1, 2024 are eligible and are encouraged to be registered beginning January 2nd through January 31st.
Families will need to provide an official birth certificate and proof of residency as part of the registration process. Officials will contact families to complete registration requirements. A kindergarten orientation and visitation day will be scheduled in the spring.
With the change in eligibility, our goal is to provide a venue during this transitional year and provide an opportunity for students. FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR 2024-25 ONLY, district staff will be using a Kindergarten screener (assessment) tool to determine developmental readiness (if a child does not meet the current birth date eligibility). As reported to the Board of Education at the 12-12-23 meeting, district administrators will be creating a Kindergarten readiness program in the summer of 2024 to further support students who do not meet the September 1 eligibility date and might benefit from academic and/or social-emotional support prior to entering Kindergarten.
We look forward to welcoming your children into Regional School District 12!
