Rockford Public Schools is pleased to welcome you to the Kindergarten/Developmental Kindergarten enrollment process. If you are enrolling a new K/DK student, please be aware that students must be five years old by September 1st (students may attend K/DK with an Age Waiver if they turn five between September 2nd and December 1st and reside in the RPS district). We understand that this is a monumental time in a child’s life and we eagerly welcome our future K/DK students.
Begin the enrollment process in a few easy steps!
Step 1: Complete the Enrollment Form
Step 2: Attend the Parent Information Night at your school. This event will provide a time for parents of incoming K/DK students to meet the staff, learn about the curriculum, and have questions answered or concerns addressed.
*Families who plan to apply through SCHOOLS OF CHOICE may attend any of the Parent Information Nights and begin the enrollment process, however, this does not imply or guarantee placement.
