The SAN CARLOS SCHOOL DISTRICT will be accepting centralized REGISTRATION for incoming students in Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten and grades 1st through 8th for the 2017-18 school year!

Registration will be open for a 5-month period for all grades. The registration process is centralized at the District office for all schools except the San Carlos Charter Learning Center (please visit their website for registration procedures). Please do not go to individual schools to register.  As always, it is a high priority that we place students in their neighborhood school as availability allows, as well as keeping siblings together. In the case where a school is over-enrolled, we will apply additional criteria to determine the order of placement of students.

WHEN: October 3, 2016 through March 3, 2017

WHO:  Students born as follows:

  • Transitional Kindergarten: September 2 to December 2, 2012.

To be eligible for transitional kindergarten the child’s 5th birthday must be between September 2 – December 2, 2017

  • Kindergarten: December 3, 2011 to September 1, 2012

State law requires that to be eligible for kindergarten in September 2017, a child must be five (5) years of age on or before September 1, 2017.
