Ripon Unified Kindergarten Orientation for the 2013-14 school year will be held on Tuesday, April 23, beginning at 6 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose room at Park View Elementary School.

Topics to be covered at the orientation include district placement and attendance policies, transportation, immunization requirements, and documents required for kindergarten registration.

Kindergarten registration will be held on Tuesday, May 7, from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose room at Park View Elementary School. Children are eligible to begin kindergarten if they will be five years old on or before October 1, 2013. Prior to registration, forms will be on-line and available for parents to complete and bring with them to registration. Forms will also be available for completion at the registration on May 7. All registration forms must be completed and turned in by Friday, May 10, at 4 p.m. Completed registration packets may be turned in at any elementary school office.

Parents enrolling their child in kindergarten will be given the opportunity to request a school of attendance.  Children with siblings already enrolled in the requested school will be enrolled first.  The remainder of the requests will be prioritized by a random drawing.  Children will be enrolled in the requested school in the order determined by the drawing until the school’s capacity is reached. 

Remaining children will be placed on the transfer list for the requested school by random selection and then assigned to schools below capacity.  Parents who enroll their child after the May 10 deadline, will be given the opportunity to request a school of attendance, and if the requested school has capacity and there is not prioritized list for the requested school, the request will be granted. If there is a prioritized list for the requested school, the child will be placed at the bottom of the priority list and assigned to a school with capacity.
