Countywide Registration Procedure

Johnston County Schools Seeking Kindergarten Registrants

Parents of upcoming kindergarten children are encouraged to reserve a seat for their children for the first day of school by registering at the child's school starting Friday, March 31 (March 17th for Year-Round Schools). Children must be five years old on or before August 31, 2017 to enroll. (Click here for complete details). Parents are strongly encouraged to enroll their children on Friday, March 31 (March 17th for Year-Round Schools), or as soon as possible after that date to assist the schools in planning for the upcoming school year.

It is important for parents or guardians to go to the school that serves their address to register their children. Registration takes approximately 15 minutes.

Please bring the following:

  • Child's Certified Birth Certificate (if available) or other documented proof of age
    (Examples: birth certificate or hospital birth record recorded before age 5; or a religious record which shows your date of birth and was recorded before age 5. Other Examples: If you cannot obtain the preferred evidence of your age, you will be asked for other convincing evidence that shows your date of birth or age at a certain time such as: an original family bible or family record; school records; census records; a statement signed by the physician or midwife who was present at your birth; insurance policies; a passport; a delayed birth certificate, your child's birth certificate; or an immigration or naturalization record.)
  • A parent/guardian's picture identification with the same name as listed on the child's documented proof of age
  • Physical Examination Form / Immunization Record
    (Click here for complete details)
  • Proof of Residence (utility bill, land contract, etc.)
    (A driver's license is not adequate proof of residence.)

Any information received will not be used for immigration purposes.
