INTRODUCTION

District families that have a child that turns 5 by September 1, 2021, have an opportunity to start the registration process and ask questions of District administrators on one of two scheduled dates. In the past, we have been able to hold a kindergarten preview, but it is not possible this year. This year, we have set up a meet and greet of sorts for a family member to attend to submit registration documents, meet with a member of your school administration team, and submit your preference for AM or PM. The appointment times will go quickly, so please submit the appropriate form below (EAST or WEST side) as soon as possible.

For students that will attend a District Elementary School on the EAST side of Batavia (Hoover-Wood, J.B. Nelson, or Louise White School) an appointment window has been set for the evening of Thursday, February 18. All appointments will take place at the Rosalie Jones Administration Building, 335 W. Wilson Street in Batavia. Please sign up for an appointment time HERE.

For students that will attend a District elementary school on the WEST side of Batavia (Alice Gustafson, H.C. Storm, or Grace McWayne School) an appointment window has been set for the evening of Thursday, February 25. All appointments will take place at the Rosalie Jones Administration Building, 335 W. Wilson Street in Batavia. Please sign up for an appointment time HERE.

Here is information about District school boundaries if you are unsure where your student would attend elementary school in our District.

Registration Documentation

When you arrive for your appointment, you will be asked to submit the following documentation for registration. Please have it all ready when you arrive.

  1. The child’s county birth certificate
  2. Proof of Residency, which includes (a detailed list can be found HERE).
    1. Real estate tax bill, a signed lease, or closing agreement/mortgage AND
    2. Two items with name and address (driver’s license with current address, utility bill, current public aid card, current homeowners/renters insurance policy, and premium payment receipt)
  3. Affidavit of Enrollment and Residency
  4. Initial Student Enrollment Forms (Part I and Part II)

Soon after you participate in the appointment with your school’s administration in February, and submit your documentation, you will receive an email providing an access code for PowerSchool (online registration system) in order to complete the remainder of the required registration information, including payment of school fees and activities.

Prior to the start of school in 2021, you will also need to complete these medical requirements for your student.

Kindergarten Eligible in 2020?

If you are a family that has a student who was eligible to attend Kindergarten in 2020, the student was 5 by Sept. 1, 2020, and you chose to take a pass, we will be hosting diagnostic screenings for overall readiness for Kindergarten or 1st grade. Please be patient as we plan for this event, most likely for May of 2021. More details to come.

Open House

We are hopeful that we will be able to bring the kindergarten students into their school for an open house in August of 2021. More details will be provided as we get closer to the 21-22 school year.

If you need additional assistance with registration, please call (630) 937-8800.
