As your child moves from preschool to Kindergarten, you may have questions about the types of special education services available to school-age students, the transition process, and what steps you need to take to obtain a Kindergarten placement for your child. To be eligible for admission to Kindergarten in September 2012, a student must turn 5 by December 31, 2012 and be a resident of New York City. In keeping with ongoing reforms in special education <http://schools.nyc.gov/NR/rdonlyres/7DB93188-A04A-40A5-BFAA-8F1402716F20/0/SpEdReformandKProcess2011final110411.pdf> , all students entering Kindergarten in September 2012, including students with disabilities, should participate in the Kindergarten Admissions Process <http://schools.nyc.gov/ChoicesEnrollment/Elementary> . Your child will likely attend the school that accepts him/her through this process.


 


Your first step is to complete an application at your zoned school (or a barrier-free school <http://schools.nyc.gov/NR/rdonlyres/2577284F-D5BD-4392-8723-DC08461AD7AA/0/AccessibleCommunityschools2010.pdf> , if appropriate) and any other schools of interest. We also invite you to attend an Orientation Meeting in your borough (please scroll down for a complete schedule) and to read our Kindergarten Orientation Guide <http://schools.nyc.gov/NR/rdonlyres/AFAF452E-E9BF-450F-814A-FEABF4654882/0/KindergartenOrientationGuide2011.pdf> for Families of Students with Disabilities.
