I wanted to pass this information on from the NYC Department of Education to NYC families whose kids will be applying to kindergarten next year. Applications are due!
The deadline to submit your child’s kindergarten application for the 2013-2014 school year is right around the corner. As a reminder, you must apply by Friday, March 1, 2013. As you explore your options, please keep in mind the following updates:
Elementary School Directories
The 2013-2014 Elementary School Directories are now available on the Elementary School Publications website!
Each borough’s Directory contains information about the kindergarten admissions process, schools located in that borough, district maps, a list of charter schools, and a summary of all public kindergarten programs in New York City. Use the Directories as a resource to help you decide where you would like to submit a kindergarten application.
Districts 7 and 23 School Fairs
If you live in District 7 (South Bronx) or District 23 (Brownsville), we strongly encourage you to attend one of our school fairs this week. The fairs provide a wonderful opportunity for families to speak face-to-face with school representatives, ask questions about the enrollment process, and learn more about the different elementary schools in the district.
District 7 Kindergarten Fair
Wednesday, February 6th
P.S. 5 Port Morris (564 Jackson Avenue)
District 23 Kindergarten Fair
Thursday, February 7th
P.S. 156 Waverly (104 Sutter Avenue)
Remember, there are no zoned schools in District 1, District 7, and District 23. You can apply to schools in these districts online, by phone, and in person at an Enrollment Office. For more information about these districts, visit the Kindergarten Admissions website.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at ES_Enrollment@schools.nyc.gov. We wish you the best of luck during this exciting time.
