The West Perry School District 2022-23 Kindergarten Registration event was held on March 28, 29 & 30. If your child will be 5 years old before September 1, 2022, he/she is eligible for Kindergarten in the 2022-23 school year. PLEASE NOTE: If you are not sending your child to West Perry School District for Kindergarten or if you are holding him/her back for another year, please let us know.

Who can register a child

Parents or court-appointed guardians living in the West Perry School District may register a student. (Note: Exceptions apply to homeless youth according to the McKinney-Vento Act, migrant and foster students.) A student living with someone other than a parent will be registered in accordance with guidelines set by PA Public School Code section 24 P.S. 13-1302.

Residents, other than the parent or court-appointed guardian, will be asked to sign an affidavit stating that they and the student live in this District on a full-time basis.

If you are registering your child with West Perry School District and you are residing with a district property owner, an Affidavit of Multiple Occupancy should be completed by the owner or lessee of the property. The parent/guardian of the child enrolling here should complete an Application for Multiple Occupancy.  If this situation applies to you, please call to get these forms.
