Kindergarten Registration for 2018-2019 is open!
To register for kindergarten, you will need to complete the following steps:
1. Register online in order to give us pertinent information about your child.
2. After you register, you will be prompted to schedule an appointment. Appointments will take place during the week of March 19 at Chandler School.
3. Once you have made an appointment, we will send you 3 items in the mail: An Early Screening Inventory document, a proof of residency form, and a tuition agreement (if applicable). Please have these completed and bring them to your registration appointment.

What will happen at my registration appointment?
Each appointment is scheduled to last for 20 minutes. During your appointment, you and your child will meet the principal and assistant principal, and rotate through several stations in order for us to collect information from you.
Parent stations will be:
- Registration paperwork verification
- Tuition agreement collection (if applicable)
Child stations will be:
- Kindergarten screening with a Chandler teacher

What do I need for proof of residency documentation?
We ask that all families provide two forms of residency documentation. Please refer to the table below and have one form of identification from each group available.

How do I make a deposit for full-day kindergarten?
When you register your child for Kindergarten, you will receive a paper Tuition Agreement from Chandler School. You are asked to pay a deposit at that time and select a payment plan for the remaining balance. You may complete your payments here, based on the plan you selected on that Agreement. If you have any questions about your payment plan, please contact Sue MacNeil (email@example.com).
Please note that paying online can be done via electronic check, Mastercard, or Discover Card. There is 25 cent processing fee for using the electronic check option (less than the cost of a stamp), while the fee the bank charges for credit cards is a percentage of the payment being made. Alternatively, you may send a paper check to Chandler, made payable to Duxbury Public Schools.
