Elementary Education FAQs
How do I know which school my child should attend?
Schools each have an attendance zone. You can find out which school your home is zoned for by searching your address here.
What is the kindergarten cut-off date?
Children must be five years old on or before August 1st to enroll in kindergarten. Parents should contact the principal to request an early enrollment waiver for children who will be five years old between August 2nd and August 31st. Please note that completing the waiver does not guarantee acceptance. Pre-enrollment for kindergarten begins in February each year.
What state assessments are required in elementary school?
Students in kindergarten through second grade are required to participate in dyslexia screeners. State standardized testing begins in third grade. Third graders will take the Indiana Reading Evaluation And Determination (IREAD-3). Students in third through eighth grade take the ILEARN test as well.
What do I do if I have a concern regarding the curriculum my child is being taught?
As with any concern you might have about your child's education, please speak with your child's teacher or principal. If that doesn't resolve your concern, please use this form to share concerns regarding the MCCSC curriculum or instructional materials. Your submission will be sent to the Curriculum and Instruction Office for review.
