Kindergarten Registration and Screening

Kindergarten Registration:  If you have a child that will be five years of age on or before September 30, please call the K-2 office to register for Kindergarten.  Defiance City Schools offers two kindergarten aged programs, KinderStart (early five program) and regular kindergarten.  Students must meet the age requirement for both programs.

We held our April screening the week of the 11th.  If you missed that opportunity, please call the school and request an appointment on our make up days, May 16 or May 17. Parents with students currently enrolled in our KinderStart program will NOT need to register or go through the screening process again.  Our KS students will automatically be placed in a regular Kindergarten classroom next school year.

Teacher Requests/Exemptions

Teacher Requests:  It’s hard to believe that we are planning for next school year already, but we are!  We have a  “no request” policy for teachers.  This has worked well for our district and our classrooms are very well distributed based on boy/girl ratio, as well as behavior and academic needs of our children.  We will follow this same policy for the 2022-2023 school year.  If you have a teacher that you would like to exempt your child from having, please see the office secretary for a form.  However, requests will not be accepted.
