Race to Kindergarten - May 19 Families, start your engines! It’s time to begin the race to graduation with Indianapolis Public Schools! The kindergarten registration window opens on May 19, and we’re holding a pair of events to help parents through the application process. The best thing about our application this year: it’s online! You can begin the process from your computer, tablet, or smartphone at any time once the window opens.

“Race to Kindergarten” events will be on May 19 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Haughville Branch Library and May 26 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the College Avenue Branch Library. Knowledgeable members of our enrollment team, including bilingual translators, will be on hand to assist families with any questions about our kindergarten programs or the enrollment process. Our team will also be able to walk you through the online application on-site.

For your convenience, you may begin the application process online, but families enrolling a new student in kindergarten will need:

  • Student’s birth certificate
  • Complete immunization records
  • Proof of residence (a lease or utility bill showing your name and current address)
  • Parent or guardian’s photo ID

These documents may be submitted in-person or by email; you will be contacted by our enrollment experts after submitting an electronic application to complete the final steps in the process.

The registration window opens at 5:30 p.m. on May 19; if you need assistance with your application please attend one of our Race to Kindergarten events or call our Service Center 317.226.4000 for more information.
