Spring registration set for Fulton County kindergarten and pre-k students

The Fulton County school system has announced its spring kindergarten registration dates.

They are April 30, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and May 1, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. During the two days, parents of incoming kindergarten students, as well as other new elementary students entering school in August, can register their children for the 2014-2015 school year.

Registration will occur at all Fulton County elementary schools. To register new students, parents should visit the school their child will attend in the fall. A list of documents needed for registration, including immunization requirements for kindergartners and pre-kindergarten students, is posted at the Fulton County schools website. A notarized affidavit of residence is also mandatory for all students.

In addition, 1,678 spaces in pre-kindergarten classes are available at 42 elementary schools throughout the county. Pre-kindergarten registration dates vary by school and enrollment is handled by a lottery system. Parents also can visit the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning’s web site, www.decal.ga.gov, to determine the availability of other privately-funded pre-kindergarten program providers.
