Kindergarten 2021-2022

Online Registration For Rising Kindergarten Students will open on Monday, March 22, 2021. Please follow the steps below.


We are excited to open Kindergarten Registration for the 2021-2022 school year!

In the past, we have asked families to register by their zoned elementary school on a specific day. With the new online process, you can now register at any time

To register for the 2021-2022 school year in kindergarten, students need to be 5 years old by September 1, 2021.

Pre-K Students already enrolled in a Dawson County School Pre-K Program at RES, RVES, or KES, DO NOT need to complete the online registration process for new students. Parents will need to do the following:

1.Complete RETURNING student registration when it opens on June 28, 2021! The link will be provided on the district's website under returning students once the window opens in June.

2.Complete and submit an out-of-zone request if your child isn't zoned to the school where they attended pre-k and you wish for them to continue at the school. If you do not submit a form, your child will be scheduled at their zoned school (the school assigned to the address where you reside). Click HERE to access the out-of-zone form.
