Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How old should my child be to enter Kindergarten?
A. Kentucky state law requires students to be 5 on or before August 1st of the year they are to enter kindergarten.
Q. What are the registration requirements for enrollment in Kindergarten?
A. Several items of documentation are needed before a child can be enrolled in school:
• Physical exam
• Vision exam
• A current Kentucky Immunization Record
• Dental Exam
• State certified copy of the birth certificate (no hospital copies will be accepted) or other reliable proof of student’s identity and age with an affidavit explaining the inability to show a copy of the birth certificate.
Q. Which school is my child zoned to attend?
Q. What if my child's birthday falls after August 1, can they still attend?
A. The Christian County School Board enacted an Entrance Age Policy 09.121 petition process. This allows a student-family to request consideration to enroll in the 2024-2025 kindergarten class if the student turns five years of age shortly after August 1, 2024. The deadline for this exception petition is March 31, 2024.
A petition can be requested at your zoned school through the school counselor's office.
