2012-13 Kindergarten Registration Dates

Kindergarten registration for 2012-13 is taking place at all elementary schools in VUSD. Starting this year, children registering for kindergarten must be age 5 by Nov. 1 of 2012, a full month earlier than in the past. 

Senate Bill 1381, known as the Kindergarten Readiness Act, gradually moves up the age at which students can enroll in kindergarten. For the following school year, 2013-14, children must be 5 by Oct. 1; for 2014-15 (and each year thereafter) they must turn 5 by Sept. 1.

Originally, the Readiness Act also required districts to develop transitional kindergarten programs for children who are too young to attend kindergarten due to the new age requirements each year. That program is on hold at most districts in the state. However, VUSD is making tentative plans to implement it. Please see our related article on the home page or subscribe to receive updates from our E-news service. 

Registration forms will be available at the school sites, or parents may print the ones provided here in English or Spanish. Take completed forms to the school during office hours. Please print on white paper only.

When presenting enrollment forms, please bring the following: 

  1. birth certificate (your child must be five years old on or before November 1, 2012)
  2. immunization record
  3. proof of a physical exam after your child was 4 years, 3 months old or written proof of an appointment for an exam
  4. proof of residence such as a PG&E bill or cable bill
  5. proof of a dental exam done within the year prior to registration.  Proof of a dental exam must be supplied to the school by May 31, 2013.
