It may be hard to believe, but it's time to start thinking about the 2013-14 school year, and enrolling kindergarteners and pre-kindergarteners in the San Carlos School District (SCSD).
According to the district's website, all students wishing to enroll anytime at the District Office, 826 Chestnut Street from 8:30am and 4pm. The registration process is centralized at the District office for all schools except the San Carlos Charter Learning Center (Visit their website for registration procedures). The district requests parents/guardians go to other individual schools to register.
The enrollment process is as follows:
Download the New Kindergarten Enrollment Application Form or the New Transitional Kindergarten Enrollment Application Form and the Home Language Survey.
After forms are completed, submit to the District Office, along with the original birth certificate and proof of residency (copies will be made at the District Office).
- Enrollment applications can be submitted Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. (or by appointment) through March 1, 2013.
- All registrations received by March 1, 2013 will be included in the initial school placement for the 2013-2014 school year. Registration will remain open for San Carlos School District residents after March 1st, and placements are made once a week on Friday.
- Monday, March 4, 2013, the District will hold a lottery (if necessary) for all incoming Kindergartners who live in the SCSD boundaries. District will then notify all families as to where their child’s placement will be for the coming school year. (Decisions to be made as per Board adopted “preferences” procedures).
- At the beginning of April 2013, parents will receive additional instructions and access to complete the Online Registration Process using InfoSnap (our online student data entry system). In addition, The CHDP Health Assessment and the Oral Health Assessment must be performed after March 31, 2013. Parents will need to submit the CHDP Health Examination Form and the Oral Health Assessment Form to their school secretary prior to the start of the school year.
District officials say that if a family has not received placement information by March 18, they should call the district registrar, Carolina De Vito at 650-508-7333.
