Dates and times to pre-register (Location – Barfield Elementary School):
Kindergarten Registration – What you need:
Tennessee law states that children entering kindergarten must be five years of age on or before August 15. Rutherford County Schools do not test for early entrance to kindergarten.
Countywide Phase-In Period:
The first few days of the school year are used as a phase-in period for kindergarten students. During this time, students are screened on an individual basis, parents attend an orientation session, and the students attend school in small groups to become familiar with the school routines. A calendar will be provided during pre-registration with days and times for phase-in activities as well as the date of the first full day of kindergarten.
