Kindergarten registration set

Fayette County Schools’ district-wide kindergarten registration for the 2014-15 school term is scheduled for Friday, March 7, from 9 a.m. through 2 p.m. at each elementary school.

Parents will need to go to the school located in their attendance area to register their children. Parents registering kindergarten students will need to bring proof of residency, such as a utility bill, the child’s immunization records, Social Security card, certified birth certificate from the Department of Vital Statistics and proof of a well-child exam within the past 12 months.

In order to be eligible for kindergarten for the 2014-15 school year, children must be five years old on or before Sept. 1.

Families needing information should contact their neighborhood school.

The federal McKinney-Vento Act and West Virginia state law and policy also guarantee that you can enroll in school if you live:

- In a shelter;

- In a motel;

- In a house or apartment with more than one family because of economic hardship or loss;

- In temporary foster care or awaiting foster care with an adult who is not your parent or legal guardian;

- In substandard housing (no electricity, no water and/or no heat); or

- With friends or family because you are a runaway or unaccompanied youth.

Please contact Judy Lively, Fayette County’s liaison, at 304-574-1176 if you have questions regarding criteria for enrollment and rights of homeless students.
