Registration for the 2013-2014 academic year in Fayette County Public Schools opens Monday Feb. 11.
Kentucky law requires children between 6 and 16 years old 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 school their neighborhood is assigned to and fill out a registration packet. To determine which school, use the online street directory www.fcps.net/street
