New Student Registration: Kindergarten

Proposed Kindergarten Changes for 2019-2020 School Year

The Salem School District believes strongly that students enrolled in certified kindergarten programs have a greater chance of success throughout their school years and beyond. As a result, the Salem School Board has proposed a number of significant changes. 

Results of the March 12 vote will influence this plan. 

Expanded Full-Time Kindergarten

Tuition-Free Kindergarten

Starting this fall, we plan to offer tuition-free, full-day kindergarten at all five elementary schools, and we will proceed with the registration process accordingly.

Offered at ALL Elementary Schools

All five elementary schools -- Barron, Fisk, Lancaster, North Salem, and Soule -- plan to offer full-day kindergarten programs. Provided there is space, students would attend the full-day program at their neighborhood school.


Children who will be five years of age before October 1, 2019 are eligible to attend.

We intend to offer a mornings-only, half-day program at Haigh Elementary School for parents who still prefer a half-day option. There will be no afternoon program and the morning session will be scheduled from 9:00-11:30. There is no tuition and parents are responsible for all transportation.
