On Monday, April 29, 2019, Gov. Eric Holcomb signed a bill that changes the eligibility cutoff date for students entering kindergarten in the 2019-20 school year. If your child will turn 5 on or before Sept. 1, 2019, you are eligible to apply for kindergarten. Previously, a child was eligible for kindergarten in the fall of 2019 if they turned 5 on or before Aug. 1, 2019. Registration is now open!
The new legislation also affects preschool eligibility. If your child will turn 5 between Aug. 2 and Sept. 1, 2019, you are eligible to apply for kindergarten or the Early Childhood Academy. You may not apply to both.
Because we have strategically built kindergarten academies in four locations throughout the district, students are assigned as follows:
|Home School||Kindergarten Academy|
|Clinton Young (if residence is north of I-465)
Mary Bryan Elementary
|Jeremiah Gray Kindergarten Academy
|Clinton Young (if residence is south of I-465 & west of I-65)
Winchester Village Elementary
|Homecroft Kindergarten Academy
|Douglas MacArthur Elementary
Henry Burkhart Elementary
|Douglas MacArthur Kindergarten Academy
|Abraham Lincoln Elementary
Glenns Valley Elementary
|Rosa Parks Kindergarten Academy
To register a child, please visit the Kindergarten Academy that the student will attend, complete this enrollment packet, and submit the following information:
Note: The Kindergarten Academy your student will attend is determined by your residence only and not where other siblings may be attending.
