Providence Public Schools 2013 Kindergarten Registration: January 10-March 1, 2013

Providence Public Schools 2013 Kindergarten Registration: January 10-March 1, 2013

[ 1 ] January 6, 2013 |

Heads up to families looking at kindergarten: Providence Public Schools will be registering children for kindergarten and first grade from January 10-March 1, 2013. The registration is done alphabetically. You can visit the Providence Public Schools’ website’s registration section for details about registration requirements and assignment policies.

The registration process for Providence Public Schools can be quite a confusing experience. I would like to thank Kira Greene and Kirsten Murphy for putting together this comprehensive guide to Providence Public Schools Kindergarten Registration for 2013. They will follow up this post with advice about elementary school lotteries, waiting lists, and suggestions for parents who are weighing options between public and independent/charter schools or who are transferring into the public schools from elsewhere.
