Registration for Kershaw County School District’s (KCSD) four-year-old and five-year-old kindergarten classes for 2014-2015 will take place Thursday, Feb. 20.

The district also will be registering students on Feb. 20 who will be in the first grade in 2014-2015 and are not currently enrolled in district schools. This registration is not necessary for a future first grader who is currently attending a Kershaw County School District kindergarten class.

Kershaw County School Board policy requires parents to bring all of the following documents to enroll a student for the first time in the Kershaw County School District: a copy of the child’s birth certificate, the child’s South Carolina Certificate of Immunization, a parent/guardian’s valid South Carolina ID such as a driver’s license, a tax document with the current and correct address, a check stub with the current and correct address, and either a mortgage or lease agreement or legally notarized documentation from the landlord. A child’s registration will not be complete without this documentation.

Parents should register five-year-old kindergarten and first grade students at the school sites for which their residences are zoned; four-year-old kindergarten students should be registered at the school closest to their residence where the program is offered.

To be eligible for application to programs for four-year-olds, students must be four years old on or before Sept. 1, 2014. Students applying for the four-year-old program must take an admissions test that is given at a later date. Four-year-old child development programs are tentatively scheduled for Baron DeKalb Elementary, Blaney Elementary, Midway Elementary, Pine Tree Hill Elementary and Wateree Elementary although programs are subject to discontinuation in the event of funding shortages.

To enroll in five-year-old kindergarten programs, a child must be five years old on or before Sept. 1, 2014. Parents of students currently enrolled in four-year-old programs in Kershaw County who are now registering their children for five-year-old kindergarten do not have to provide the above documentation since they had to do so last year for acceptance into the four-year-old program. All elementary schools have five-year-old kindergarten programs.

To participate in this registration for first grade, a student must be 6 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2014, and not currently enrolled in the Kershaw County School District. All elementary schools have first grade programs.
