Welcome to Franklin County Public Schools as we embark upon your child's educational journey together. A child who reaches his or her fifth birthday after September 30, but before December 31, of the upcoming school year shall be eligible for enrollment in kindergarten if enrollment would benefit the child. For such children, the principal has discretion to determine eligibility for kindergarten based on scores on approved readiness tests, parent interview, child interview, and/or observation of the child. No guarantee for enrollment is made, just because the child’s birthday falls between September 30 and December 31. The child must be eligible for school enrollment as specified in Policy JEC: School Admission and Regulation JEC-R: School Admission.    
Kindergarten Screening Day will take place on Tuesday, April 16, 2024 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at your child's elementary school. Please contact your child's school to schedule an appointment.
