Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration for the next school year begins on February 8th.

All incoming kindergarten students must be 5 years old by August 1, 2021, as outlined by the Kentucky Department of Education. Under state law, children who are 6 years old by 08/01/2021 must be enrolled in and attend school.

A state-issued birth certificate is necessary for enrollment. If you do not have a copy and have not already ordered one, please do so NOW. Processing times are much lengthier than usual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, please schedule your medical appointments ASAP and collect the electronic documentation outlined below. Unless prohibited by insurance, all paperwork is due by May 1st.

School buildings are still closed to visitors due to the pandemic and all kindergarten registrations must be submitted electronically. Our Online Registration link for in-district families can be found under ABOUT>ENROLLMENT.

If you already have children attending one of our Walton-Verona Schools, please select the Existing Families link that will look like this .

If you are completely new to the district please select the New Families link that will look like this .

Our online system will walk you through the registration process and provide you with links to upload all of the required electronic documentation. You may submit an application with limited documentation, but it will not be approved without guardian photo ID’s, a state-issued birth certificate, and a valid proof-of-residency. Families who wish to enroll more than one student should submit the application for ALL students at the same time. For example, if you have twins or if you are completely new to the district and wish to enroll a kindergarten and 5th-grade student, please do so simultaneously. ** Important Note: when assigning emergency contact “relationships” in our online registration, please choose the LEGAL relationship as it pertains to the student. A mother/father can only be a birth parent, adoptive parent, or a court-appointed permanent guardian (the latter two requiring court documentation).

Required Paperwork: To register, please provide us with the student’s state-issued birth certificate, social security card (requirement of state-funded scholarship KEES program), complete custody agreement (if applicable), all guardian photo ID’s, each of these medical forms obtained from a physician (Kentucky immunization certificate, KY health form here, KY dental form here & KY vision form here), and your proof-of-residency within the school district boundaries. A valid proof-of-residency MUST be signed and dated and can be in the form of a house deed, closing papers, or a lease agreement naming the student as an occupant. If you do not own or lease within the district boundaries, please contact Cindy Kopser at the email provided below for instructions on what additional documentation will be required. The only exception to the May 1st deadline is the dental and vision forms which can be submitted as late as December 1, 2021.

The state of Kentucky mandates that students take the Brigance Kindergarten Entry Screener and that it be administered no more than two weeks before enrollment. Once your registration has been received, you will receive a link by email to sign up for one of the two testing days. Please note that appointments are filled on a first-come-first-serve basis.

If you would like to enroll a student but do not live within our district boundaries, you are required to apply for Out-of-District consideration and you should NOT complete an online registration at this time. An Out-of-District Application and additional information about the process can be found on the bottom half of our enrollment webpage. Please forward your completed application and requested documentation to the email below. Once reviewed, you should receive a link by email to sign up for the Brigance Screener which is a mandatory requirement for applicants.
