Get ‘Em Registered For School
From the Anne Arundel County Public Schools:
Anne Arundel County Public Schools prekindergarten and kindergarten registration for the 2010-2011 school year will be held at county elementary schools beginning April 6. Registration must be done in person at the school in which the child will be enrolled.
Children enrolling in kindergarten for the 2010-2011 school year must be 5 years old by September 1, 2010. Prekindergarten children must be 4 years old by September 1, 2010. The following documents are required registering a child for prekindergarten or kindergarten:
● The child’s original birth certificate or birth record
● A copy of the child’s immunization record
● Two proofs of residency (rental or mortgage agreement and current utility bill)
Public prekindergarten programs in Maryland were established to improve the school readiness of children who are economically disadvantaged or homeless. If seats remain, schools may enroll students with other readiness needs. Those applying for prekindergarten due to economic need must provide income eligibility verification by submitting one of the following:
● Federal Income Tax Return for 2009 (1040 statement) along with documentation related to other sources of
income such as child support and/or rental income.
● Current award letter for Temporary Cash Assistance, Food Stamps, or the WIC program.
