REGISTRATION PROCEDURE AND ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS
Registration - Any parent/guardian wishing to enroll a child or children in the Chesterfield Township Elementary School Program must report to the school administrative office with the child or children on any week day between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. The parent/guardian must complete a school registration form and a school health form for each child. Please call 298-6900 to schedule an appointment.
Kindergarten Entrance Age - In order to be eligible to be enrolled in the Kindergarten Program, a child must be five (5) years old on or before September 30th. Administrative policy stipulates that all children must attend an approved kindergarten program before being admitted into the first grade.
Kindergarten Entrance Requirements - All children enrolling in kindergarten at Chesterfield School must present an original birth certificate; proof of MMR 1 & 2, complete DPT and polio series plus boosters after age 4, hepatitis B, and chicken pox vaccine; and be a resident of Chesterfield Township.
Class Placement - Children, who are transferring to the Chesterfield Township School from another recognized school, will normally be placed in the same grade level that they had been in at their previous school. However, Chesterfield School has the right and responsibility to place the child in the most appropriate grade level, class or program suitable for the child. Transfer students must submit copies of transfer cards and health records at the time of enrollment.
Note: If a student being registered is living in any type of temporary residence or other accommodations, or is doubled up with other people due to loss of housing or economic hardship, he or she may qualify for certain rights and protections under the federal McKinney-Vento Act. You have the right to enroll the student in school immediately, even if lacking documents normally required for enrollment.
