The Westerville City School District (WCSD) is preparing to begin the registration process for its next kindergarten class. School officials look forward to meeting new families and greeting returning families. Kindergarten is required for children before entering first grade; families may register their children for kindergarten if they will be five years old on or before September 30, 2019.
WCSD offers Half-Day Kindergarten and All-Day Kindergarten classes within each home school. All-Day Kindergarten is a fee based, lottery program with tuition assistance available for those that qualify. Those who wish to apply to the All-Day Kindergarten lottery may do so beginning January 29, 2019, after 5:00 p.m., as part of the online enrollment application. Additional details are available online at www.wcsoh.org/ADK.
Kindergarten registration kicks off with Kindergarten 101, which will be offered at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 29, 2019, and at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 31, 2019, at the following locations:
- January 29, 2019: Annehurst, Cherrington, Fouse, Hawthorne, Whittier, Wilder
- January 31, 2019: Alcott, Huber Ridge, Mark Twain, McVay, Pointview, Robert Frost
The same presentation will be given during each building’s designated Kindergarten 101 night. Families unable to attend Kindergarten 101 at their home school may choose an alternate presentation to attend.
Any family that is unsure of its current home school of attendance may contact any WCSD elementary school or the Enrollment and Family Resource Center at (614)797-7700. The enrollment process begins with pre-registration online and, upon completion of the application, the setting of an appointment to submit required documentation to the Enrollment and Family Resource Center. Full details regarding the registration process can be found at www.wcsoh.org/enroll.
