Age Requirements
The requirement for a child's first enrollment in a Kansas school is governed by the state law and the school district cannot exercise any deviations from the law.
• A child must be 5 years of age on or before August 31 of the current year to enter kindergarten.
• A child must be 6 years of age on or before August 31 of the current year to enter the first grade.

Entrance Requirements
If you are entering Derby Public Schools for the first time, you will go to your new school to enroll. It is essential you bring the following items with you: 
Birth Certificate - If a birth certificate is not available, schools will accept a hospital certificate of birth, a visa or passport, a certified transcript from another school district, or a court order that shows the birth date and places the  student with Department for Children and Families. Students may enter kindergarten if they will be five years old on or  before August 31, 2020. Students may enroll in first grade if they will be six years old on or before August 31, 2020.
Proof of Residency - Please bring a utility bill (water/gas/electric) that verifies you live within the district boundaries.
Health Assessment - A current health assessment is strongly encouraged for all students. Consult your child’s health  care provider to obtain and complete a health assessment. Return this information to the school nurse.
Immunization Requirements - Official/valid immunization documentation is required by law. The official exclusion day for non-compliance of immunizations is November 9, 2020.

New Student Enrollment Dates/Times:
If you are new to Derby Public Schools, please visit your attendance center during your scheduled enrollment times below. If you are applying for free or reduced lunches, applications can be found on our website. In-Person dates this summer have already occurred, please contact your school office to enroll. 

**Completing enrollment as soon as possible allows the district for better planning and more accurate classroom assignments and numbers. However, if you have a USD260 address you’d be able to enroll at any point during the year at your home attendance school. Please contact your school office to enroll.**
