Westchester Public School students must legally reside within the school district boundaries. All students must prove residency each year as a requirement of enrollment and registration.
An official birth certificate is required for initial registration. Students starting kindergarten at the Westchester Public Schools must be five years of age on or before September 1st. Students entering first grade must be six years of age on or before September 1st of this school year.
We are asking you to complete the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) to assist the school team in screening students for social emotional needs. The SDQ is a research based assessment that looks at children’s feelings, behavior and how well they get on with adults and other children. This questionnaire is already widely used across the United States as well as Europe. More information is available about the SDQ at www.sdqinfo.com. The information from the screener will assist the team in understanding the child’s readiness and social emotional needs so we can plan for their instructional program.
