Children seeking to enter school must be five (5) years of age before September 2nd of the year admission is sought. (Click here for the Age Appropriate Enrollment Chart.) This is state law. The only exception is for a military student* who does not meet the deadline if the student has previously attended kindergarten or a higher grade as a resident in another state.
Parents may contact their local schools as early as January if a child in the family will be attending school in the upcoming school year as a kindergartener. Need to know what school your child would attend? Visit our Boundary & Bus Stops page.
Children registering for the first time in Jordan School District will need to provide:
- an original or certified copy of the student's birth certificate from the Bureau of Vital Statistics
- proof of immunization
- proof of residency
- proof of guardianship
- custodial parent/guardian picture ID
For any questions, contact Planning and Enrollment at 801.567.8183.
*Military student means a child enrolled in kindergarten through grade twelve who is legally residing in the household of an active duty service member or whose parent or legal guardian is an active duty service member (Utah Code §53E-3-903).
