Schools of Choice Kindergarten Registration

Welcome to Champaign Schools!

Kindergarten registration for the 2019-2020 school year is January 2 - March 29. During this time, parents are invited to learn about our schools and then register to rank your school choices at our new location:

Center for Family and Community Engagement
Mellon Building, 703 S. New Street, Champaign
Registration hours are 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday - Friday.

Students who register after the registration period will be assigned to schools according to seat availability. 

How to register:

To register for kindergarten, students must be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2019. Even if your incoming kindergartener already has an older sibling in the district, he or she should register during this time.
