Kindergarten Enrollment is Here – What Evansville Parents Need to Know
Whether you like it or not, the end of the 2023-24 school year will be here before you know it. For some parents that means preparing to have a child graduate from high school, middle school, or elementary school. For some other parents - on the other end of the school spectrum - that means preparing to enroll their little one(s) in kindergarten. Speaking as a parent who has put two kids through kindergarten, I'm here to tell you it's okay - you're kid will be fine, and so will you.
What Do Parents Need to Know
If you have a child or children entering the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation (EVSC) for the 2024-25 school year, now is the time to start the enrollment process for kindergarten. If your child will be five years old on or before August 1, the following timeline is for you.
- RIGHT NOW: Enrollment for full-day kindergarten in the EVSC is now open.
- Monday, March 18, 2024: This is the day when parents can begin to apply for bus transportation to and from school. This step in the process is super important - it's crucial to get accurate numbers considering the shortage of bus drivers being felt in school corporations all around the country.
- Monday, April 1, 2024: Application begins for Extended Day Care service. Space is limited so please register as soon as possible once the application opens.
Kindergarten enrollment is all done online, and the process is very simple. Visit EVSCSchools.com and click on the first Quick Link option, which is Kindergarten Enrollment.
