Registration for the 2013-2014 academic year in Fayette County Public Schools opened in February and is ongoing.
Kentucky law requires children between 6 and 16 to attend school. Any child who turns 5 on or before Oct. 1 can enroll in full-day kindergarten.
Families may sign up for the Early Start preschool program if their child turns 4 before Oct. 1 and is income-eligible. Three and 4-year-olds who will turn 5 after Oct. 1 and who have a special need may also attend Early Start.
To enroll a child in FCPS, families should go to the their neighborhood school and fill out a registration packet. To determine which school, use the online street directory (www.fcps.net/street) or call 381-4315 for assistance.
