Kindergarten Orientation

Children who turn 5 years old on or before September 1st of the current school year may register for kindergarten. Please note there are no exceptions to Florida Statute 1003.21, which stipulates that children under the age of 16 must attend school, if they will be at least 6 years old by Feb. 1 of the current or upcoming school year. To find out the name and address of a student's area school, parents may call our Long Range Planning Department at 941-927-9000, ext. 69052 or click the link below.

All elementary schools hold "Kindergarten Orientation" (a/k/a Kindergarten Round-Up) prior to the upcoming school year. Below are the orientations that have been scheduled for children eligible to start kindergarten in the 2016 - 2017 school year. Dates and times are also posted on our website "District Calendar" under "School Events." Please check with your districted school to confirm the date and time. Be sure to register your child early.
