New Date For Kindergarten Entrance

Pitt County Schools have started enrolling this fall's kindergarteners. Registration will continue through March 11.

Pitt County Schools officials say there is a change this year due in the date by which students must turn 5. State law requires children to be 5 years old by August 31 to enroll in kindergarten, starting with the 2009-10 school year. The Department of Public Instruction says the revised law moves the birthday requirement up by a month and a half to make sure students are ready for formal school when they begin kindergarten.

To register your child, you will need:
• Proof of age (certified birth certificate or other document approved by the principal)
• Court order for guardianship (if student is living with someone other than the parent)
• Proof of residency (two documents)

Officials say early registration will ensure bus transportation on the first day of school.
