Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration letters will be mailed to the parents of students eligible for kindergarten in January. In order for a child to be eligible; the parent and child must reside in the Warwick Valley School District and the child must be five (5) years of age on or before December 1 of his or her kindergarten year.

The 2017-18 school year will be the first year for WVCSD online registration. Please see the directions above to find out more about online registration. Proof of residency and proof of age can be presented at Kindergarten Screening.

Kindergarten Screening

Kindergarten screening takes place in the spring for all eligible children who live in the Warwick Valley Central School District. Parents of all children registered on the school’s census will get letters about screening and registration. The screening takes approximately one hour. Children are administered the Test of Developmental Indicators for the Assessment of Learning-Third Edition (DIAL-3). Children are asked to complete fun, age-appropriate tasks using bright, appealing, child-friendly materials. Areas assessed include motor (gross and fine), concepts and language. While the children are being screened, parents are asked to complete a Parent Questionnaire. For more information, call Central Registration at 845-987-3000, ext. 10901.

Kindergarten Screening results are used to:

  • Place children in classes using heterogeneous grouping
  • Identify a student’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Screen for students who are at risk academically
  • Assist Instructional Support Teams in identifying children who are in need of additional services
  • May be used as a resource at Parent/Teacher Conferences
