It is not necessary to bring your child to Kindergarten registration.


Ohio State law requires that every child entering Kindergarten or  First Grade (for the first time) be screened. 

Kindergarten screening will now occur in August.   Kindergarten teachers will administer the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment (English Language Arts portion only).  Following KRA screening,  teachers will use the information to assist in meeting the individual needs of your child and will create class lists.
