This brings a splash of colors, stories and containment right into their classroom projector as well as their personal devices. Once your child starts kindergarten, they can remain at the same school until its final elementary grade.
If you missed the deadline to apply to kindergarten, you can still add your child to waitlists online with Schools. Every five-year-old New York City resident (this includes students who have temporarily moved out of New York City during the COVID-19 pandemic) is guaranteed a seat in a public school kindergarten program.
Children start kindergarten in the September of the calendar year they turn five. During the application period, use Schools to learn if you have a zoned elementary school.
Then, if seats are still available, students in that program’s priority group 2 will be considered next, and so on. Learn which priority group your child is in for each kindergarten program.
If there are fewer available seats than applicants within a priority group, these random numbers determine the order in which students get offers. A school’s admissions priorities determine the order in which groups of applicants are considered for offers.
Tip: Use Schools to learn about a school’s admissions priorities and who got offers last year. This information will help you know your child’s chances of getting an offer to a particular school.
For example, if a school was able to make offers to children living outside their zone who had an older sibling in the school, they may be able to make offers to siblings living outside the zone again. If your child has an older sibling at a school that you’ve added to their application, your child may have a higher chance of getting an offer from that school than an applicant without an enrolled sibling.
A sibling is defined as an applicant’s brother or sister, including half brothers, half sisters, stepbrothers, stepsisters, foster brothers, and foster sisters who live in the same household and are currently preregistered or enrolled at that school in kindergarten through grade 12, and who will be enrolled at that school in any grade level between kindergarten and grade 12 in September 2021. This includes students enrolled in District 75 programs in the same school building.
Reminder: Students currently attending pre-K at a public elementary school still need to apply to kindergarten. Tip: Use Schools to see which zoned schools admitted non-zoned students last year.
Diversity in Admissions Elementary schools across the city are participating in an initiative to increase diversity in their programs by giving admissions priorities to students who qualify for free and reduced lunch (NRL), students in temporary housing, English Language Learners, and other groups. Learn more about the current list of schools participating in diversity initiatives.
Please contact schools directly or check their websites to learn if they will hold virtual open houses or information sessions. If you missed the virtual Elementary Admissions Event in December and January, a recording will be available with captions in Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, French, Korean, Haitian Creole, Spanish, Russian and Urdu.
To apply to a Dual Language program, add it to your child’s application. If you’d like your child to attend your zoned school, be sure to add it to your application; however, you don’t have to place it as your first choice.
Online with Schools in English, Spanish, Chinese, Bengali, Russian, Arabic, Urdu, Haitian Creole, Korean, or French. If you are applying by phone, interpretation services are available in more than 200 languages.
Schools will contact you directly if they are able to offer your child a seat from the waitlist. If your child takes the G&T test, you will receive their results in the spring.
First, accept your kindergarten offer to secure your child's seat. If your family moves during the admissions process, call 718-935-2009 or contact your new zoned school to update your information and talk about changes to your kindergarten application or program.
