Kindergarten Enrollment Requirements

Kindergarten Enrollment Information


Jackson R-2 Open Kindergarten Enrollment night scheduled for Thursday, March 19, 2020 has been CANCELLED due to the COVID-19 situation.

However, we are still enrolling new students for the 20/21 academic year even during the district closure.  Please complete this online form and the district office will contact you to complete the enrollment.  Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.

Requirements for enrollment are:

  1. A child must turn 5 before August 1, 2020 in order to be eligible to enroll in kindergarten
  2. Parents/Guardians must live within the Jackson R-2 attendance area.
  3. At the time of enrollment, you must have:
  • child's official birth certificate (or passport, visa, hospital record)
  • immunization record (must be provided before child can attend)
  • social security number (card) (provision of SSN is voluntary, the school district uses the SSN to determine Medicaid eligibility for direct services)
  • parent/guardian photo ID
  • proof of residency (utility bill/agreement, rental agreement/receipt, property tax statement for the residence, real estate contract).  If you are unable to provide proof of residency in your name because you are living with another person/family, then the person with whom you are living should also attend and provide proof of residency in his/her name.
