Register Kindergartners Starting April 24


Volusia County schools will begin registering students for kindergarten the week of April 24.  Exact dates and times are different for each school.  For details, parents should call the elementary school closest to them or visit the district’s website at  [Click on the Parents icon, then in the Toolbox, then click Kindergarten Information.]

To register a child for kindergarten, the child must be five years old on or before September 1, 2017.  Parents or guardians must provide a birth certificate or other legal evidence of 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, families may call (386) 323-2400 or (386) 736-5010.

When the school year begins on August 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 on Monday, August 14, one-third on Tuesday, August 15, and one-third on Wednesday, August 16.  All kindergarten students will begin attending classes together on Thursday, August 17.  Parents will be notified by their school regarding which day their student will attend.

​For more information, call the support services center of Volusia County Schools at (386) 734-7190, 255-6475, 427-5223 or 860-3322, extension 20000, or the K-12 Curriculum office at extension 20571.
