K-5 Enrollment for Piedmont Schools on March 7

In-person registration of students who will enter Piedmont Unified Schol District schools for the first time next fall begins Thursday, March 7.

From a Piedmont Unified School District press release:

Enrollment of Kindergarten through Fifth Grade students who will enter Piedmont Schools in the Fall of 2013 will open on Thursday, March 7, 2013, from 8:15 a.m. - 3:45 p.m. at the following location:

Ellen Driscoll Theater, 325 Highland Ave., Piedmont

Please download documents for enrollment by visiting the District website after February 1, at www.piedmont.k12.ca.us/district-info/enrollment. Please bring paper copies of relevant documentation to submit on March 7, 2013. Parents are required to bring birth certificates of children to be registered to show proof of age. Children should not accompany parents for enrollment.   

Parents must provide, at the time of enrollment, a grant deed and three additional proofs of residency. Parents renting/leasing must provide, at the time of enrollment, a lease AND a copy of the property owner’s rental permit from the city, and three additional proofs of residency.

For information on acceptable proofs, please go to the District website, www.piedmont.k12.ca.us/forms/board/5000.pdf - select Administrative Regulation 5111.1.

State law requires that parents/guardians submit an immunization record prior to kindergarten entry. Parents should come prepared with documented evidence showing complete dates that children have been adequately immunized.

To enroll in our Kindergarten program, children must be 5 years old on or before October 1st, 2013.

It is anticipated that each school will have several classes at each grade level. It is the intent to keep class sizes similar from school to school. In order to do this, children may be assigned to a Piedmont school outside their immediate residency area. Every attempt will be made to keep siblings together and to look at school proximity if a shift is necessary. However, students may be transferred to another elementary school in the District within the first two weeks of the new school year. If you are new to the District or your student(s) grade K-5 are not currently attending elementary school in one of Piedmont’s schools, please plan to enroll your student(s) on March 7, 2013.

The Piedmont Unified School District offers a Transitional Kindergarten program. In keeping with State guidelines, this program targets students who turn 5 years old between September 2nd and December 2nd.

Updates will be posted on the District Webpage as they develop.

Does anyone know why Piedmont only offers half day kindergarten? Most parents pay for schoolmates either before or after the kindergarten program. Certainly more than half. It seems Havens was built without the capacity for five full day kindergarten classes. But the children would be better served by a full day of learning. Perhaps it is because the school system gets reimbursed by the state for a full 'minimum' school day for each of those half day classes. But the money doesn't really make sense if the parents are paying for aftercare. The only answer I've ever heard is that half day kindergarten is a Piedmont 'tradition.'
