    Make sure you have the necessary documents gathered, because kindergarten registration for the 2022-23 school year opens March 7.

    The kindergarten registration window will run through March 11, and the registration process will be entirely online. WCS families who already have a student in the district will be able to register their rising kindergartner by logging into Skyward and selecting WCS New Student Enrollment.

    Families without a current WCS student may request a Skyward account by following the New Student Online Enrollment instructions on the WCS website.

    To attend kindergarten in the 2022-23 school year, students must be five years old on or before August 15, 2022.

    The following documents are needed to register a student in WCS:

    • Copy of signed lease agreement (including renewed lease agreements); signed executed settlement statement, deed, mortgage statement or similar proof of legal residency; or a signed valid non-contingent real estate sales contract (only applicable if moving to the school zone and with an approved out of school zone request from the Planning and Zoning Department)
    • Two different utility bills (gas, electric or water, or a connection verification letter) for the month prior to enrolling
    • Photo ID (driver’s license or passport)
    • Tennessee certificate of immunization or valid exemptions
    • Birth certificate
    • Physical examination
