District Starting New Kindergarten Pre-Registration Program

For the first time, students who will start kindergarten in August 2019 can pre-register with the School District of Lee County. Pre-registration will allow parents to avoid the lengthy wait times often experienced during the traditional student enrollment period.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to provide parents the needed support for a smooth transition to the school house,” says Executive Director of Student Enrollment Soretta Ralph. “We welcome the Class of 2032 and can’t wait to meet our new students!”

The pre-registration period opens Monday, October 22nd and runs through Friday, November 30th. Students entering kindergarten in August must be five years old on or before September 1, 2019.

The documents required to pre-register include:

  • Physical exam (dated within the last year)
  • Florida Certificate of Immunization
  • Proof of address
  • Original birth certificate
  • Social Security Card (if available)
  • Custody documents (if applicable)

Once pre-registered, a student number will be assigned. Parents are then advised to tour the elementary schools in their zone. A pre-printed application will be mailed in January allowing parents to go online and rank their schools in order of preference for student enrollment. The first application period will be from January 14, 2019 to March 1, 2019.

“Student Enrollment has one essential goal, “Enrolling Students to Succeed,’ ” Ralph says. “We look forward to helping next year’s kindergarten class reach their highest personal potential.”

Pre-registrations can be taken at any of the three Student Enrollment Offices. They are open from 9:00am to 4:00pm Monday through Friday.
