Registering Children to Enter Piedmont Elementary Schools

–  Enrollment Opens March 6 –

The following is a Piedmont Unified School District announcement:

Enrollment of Kindergarten through Fifth Grade students who will enter Piedmont Schools in the Fall of 2014 will open on Thursday, March 6, 2014, from 8:15 a.m.to 3:45 p.m. at the following location: Ellen Driscoll Theater, 325 Highland Ave., Piedmont,CA.

Please download documents for enrollment by visiting the District website after February 1, at www.piedmont.k12.ca.us/district-info/enrollmentPlease bring paper copies of relevant documentation to submit on March 6, 2014.  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. At the time of enrollment, parents should bring 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 September 1st, 2014. 

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 6, 2014.

The Piedmont Unified School District offers a Transitional Kindergarten (TK) programIn keeping with State guidelines, students who turn 5 years old between September 2nd and December 2nd, 2014 are eligible for the TK Program only. These students will then participate in regular Kindergarten during the 2015-16 school year.

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