PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Registration is opening for kindergarten classes in Providence.
The school district is holding registration for 4- and 5-year-olds for the 2013-2014 school year beginning Thursday. It runs through March 1. Registration has to be completed in person at the Student Registration and Placement Center.
A child must have been born on or before Sept. 1, 2008, to be eligible for next school year.
Registration will continue during the rest of the school year, but only those who register during this period will be able to take part in lotteries for popular school choices.
Information sessions for families on the registration process are being held Monday at Carnevale Elementary, Tuesday at Young-Woods Elementary, Wednesday at Kennedy Elementary and Thursday at Bailey Elementary. Other sessions will be held later in the month.
