Children who will be 5 years old by Aug. 15, 2021 are eligible to attend kindergarten in the 2021-22 school year. Registration for kindergarten is conducted at one central location so all of the school system’s personnel resources can come together to help screen the children for any possible problems that might hinder their progress in school.
The screening is not an intelligence or achievement test. It is simply a way to pick up problems such as hearing, speech, or vision impairments, or underdeveloped physical or learning skills.
Tennessee Department of Education policies require all children to be screened before entering kindergarten.
The registration process will take approximately one hour and adults should stay with their child throughout the registration.

• Birth certificate
