We received the following announcement from the New York City Department of Education’s Elementary School Admissions Team:

Welcome to Kindergarten Admissions! If you live in New York City and your child is turning five years old in 2013, your child is eligible to attend kindergarten in September 2013. We understand the registration process can be challenging at times, so please know that we’re always here to offer a hand should you need one. To help you get started, below you will find important dates and other resources meant to guide you throughout the application period.

Key Dates

March 1, 2013: Deadline to submit application

Early April, 2013: Placement offers distributed to families

April 8 – April 26, 2013: Pre-registration at schools

Application Process

You must submit an application in order for your child to attend kindergarten. If you would like to apply to multiple schools, you must submit an application to each school.

Elementary School Directories

The 2013-14 Elementary School Directories are available on the Elementary School Publications [2] website. Directories will be available at all public elementary schools later this month.

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 chart that provides a summary of all public kindergarten programs in the city. Use the Directories as a resource to help you decide where you would like to submit a kindergarten application.

Districts 1, 7, and 23 are choice districts

There are no zoned schools in District 1 (Lower East Side), District 7 (South Bronx) and District 23 (Brownsville). You can apply to schools in these districts online, by phone, and in person at an Enrollment Office [3]. For more information about these districts, visit the Kindergarten Admissions website [4].

Questions?

For more information, visit the Kindergarten Admissions website [5]. If you have questions or concerns as you prepare your application, contact ES_Enrollment@schools.nyc.gov [6] or call (718) 935-2009.
