Starting this 2023-2024 academic year, there have been modifications to the age requirements for enrollment in Kindergarten. The date for admittance to Kindergarten will change from the first day of school (August 21st) to August 1st. A child who is currently enrolled in a Pre-K program during the 22-23 school year may be admitted to Kindergarten at the beginning of the 23-24 school year if the child is 5 years of age on or before the first day of school (August 21st).
There are two types of variances available:
Inter-District variances are used when a family lives in a county other than Douglas, but would like their child to attend a Douglas County school.
Intra-District variances are used when a family resides in Douglas County, but wants their child to attend a school outside of their zone.
Below you will find the appropriate forms and instructions for both types of variances.
Site principals can approve or deny any variance request. A new variance application must be completed and submitted each school year. Generally, school sites begin accepting variance requests during the summer months for the upcoming school year in order to ensure their site has the capability of servicing the variance requests based on enrollment.
