Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration for the upcoming school year will open in February.  
** 
All registrations must be submitted electronically. **

Incoming kindergarten students must be 5 years old by August 1, 2022, as outlined by the Kentucky Department of Education. Under state law, children who are 6 years old by 08/01/2022 must be enrolled in and attend school.

To ensure that your student can start school on August 29th, all paperwork should be submitted online no later than August 15th.  

A state-issued birth certificate is necessary for enrollment. If you do not have a copy, please order it NOW since processing times can be lengthy.  Also, please schedule your medical appointments ASAP to collect each of the state approved medical forms outlined below.  

  • If you do not live in the Walton-Verona School District and are seeking enrollment, please skip to the paragraph below marked Required Paperwork as these these documents will be needed if your application is accepted in August.
  • If you live in-district and your kindergarten-age child attended preschool at our Early Childhood Center as of 1/1/22, they will be registered for kindergarten automatically and you can skip to the paragraph below marked Required Paperwork.

If you live in-district and your kindergarten-age child is NOT currently attending our Early Childhood Center please follow the guidelines given below and submit your online registration as early as possible.  If you are ONLY missing the state medical forms, you may submit the online registration without them, but the other documentation mentioned below is required for approval. 

  • If you live in-district & already have a child currently attending the Walton-Verona Elementary, Middle, or High School, please select the Existing Families icon on our enrollment webpage to register your student. 
    • Icon should look like this. 
  • If you live in-district and do not have a child currently attending on of the Walton-Verona Independent Schools, please select the New Families icon on our enrollment webpage to register your student.  
    • Icon should look like this. 

Our online registration system will walk you through the registration process and provide you with links to upload all of the required paperwork. You may submit an application with limited documentation, but a minimum of the following is REQUIRED:  each guardian's photo ID; a state-issued birth certificate; and a valid proof-of-residency.  Families who wish to enroll more than one student should submit the application for ALL students at the same time. For example, if you have twins or if you wish to enroll a kindergarten and 5th-grade student, please do so simultaneously.

** Important Note: when assigning emergency contact “relationships” online, please choose the LEGAL relationship as it pertains to the student. A mother/father/guardian must be a birth parent, adoptive parent, or a court-appointed guardian (the latter two requiring court documentation).

Required Paperwork: Please provide us with the student’s state-issued birth certificate, social security card (requirement of state-funded scholarship KEES program), complete custody agreement (if applicable), each guardian's photo ID, each of these medical forms obtained from a medical provider (Kentucky immunization certificate, KY health form found here, KY dental form found here & KY vision form found here), and your proof-of-residency within the school district boundaries. A valid proof-of-residency MUST be signed and dated by all involved parties and can be in the form of a house deed, closing papers, or a lease agreement naming the student as an occupant. If you live in-district with someone else who owns the residence, please submit each of the following as your proof-of-residency: homeowner's drivers license, signed/dated house deed, and a current utility bill; and once received our registrar will contact you to schedule an appointment to complete a residency affidavit.  If you live in-district with someone who does not own the residence, the student and guardian must be added to the lease or rental agreement.   

Summer Screenings:  The state of Kentucky mandates that students take the Brigance Kindergarten Entry Screener no more than two weeks before enrollment. Once your registration has been reviewed, you will receive a link by email to sign up for one of the testing days. Please note that appointments are filled on a first-come-first-serve basis.

If you would like to enroll a student but do not live within our district boundaries, you are required to apply for Out-of-District consideration and you should NOT complete an online registration at this time. An Out-of-District Application and additional information about the process can be found on the bottom half of our enrollment webpage. Please forward your completed application and requested documentation to the email address below. Once reviewed, you should receive a link by email to sign up for the Brigance Screener which is a mandatory requirement for applicants.
