Volusia County schools will begin registering students for kindergarten April 24

Exact dates and times are different for each school. 

Parents can start registering their children for Kindergarten starting April 24.

To register a child for kindergarten, the child must be five years old on or before Sept. 1, 2017. Parents or guardians must provide a birth certificate or other legal evidence of the date of birth; immunization records signed by a physician; a record of a recent health examination conducted by a Florida physician; and two proofs of residence.

Families who have a summer 2017 VPK certificate may also register their incoming kindergartner to attend VPK this summer when registering for kindergarten. To obtain a summer 2017 VPK certificate from the Early Learning Coalition of Flagler and Volusia County, call 323-2400 or 736-5010.

When the school year begins on Aug. 14, kindergarten students will have the opportunity to get to know their teacher and new routine in a small group setting on their first day. Each of Volusia’s 46 elementary schools will implement a “staggered start” for kindergartners on the first three days of school. With the staggered start, students will receive individualized attention, enabling them to become familiar with their surroundings and school procedures.

Approximately one-third of the class will attend Aug. 14, one-third on Aug. 15, and one-third on Aug. 16. All kindergarten students will begin attending classes together Aug. 17. Parents will be notified by their school regarding which day their student will attend. 

For details, parents should call the elementary school closest to them or visit the district’s website at Parents can also call the support services center of Volusia County Schools at 734-7190, 255-6475, 427-5223 or 860-3322, Ext., 20000, or the K-12 Curriculum office at Ext., 20571.
