 • Does Perrysburg offer Open Enrollment?

• Is there an Early Entrance option for students who turn 5 after August 1st?

A student MUST be 5 years old by August 1, 2024, to enroll for the 2024-2025 school year. If your child does not meet that age requirement, you may request early entrance testing for your child. Testing is typically done at our central office by one of our school psychologists. There will be testing dates offered in April, May and June. Once the completed application form and other documents - Birth Certificate, Custody (if applicable) and Proof of Residency are received, parents/guardians will be contacted to arrange a date for testing. Students who pass the assessment will be allowed to register for kindergarten.


Please keep in mind that seats in the all day kindergarten program are first made available to students who meet the kindergarten age requirement. Families whose students are approved for early entrance will receive an all day kindergarten placement, but it may not be at the student's home building.


Very few children qualify for early entrance to kindergarten. Parents/guardians should proceed with childcare arrangements as a contingency. If you are selecting a preschool program, please be aware that those programs routinely fill up quickly. Register your child as you normally would, but let the Preschool office know that your child is being screened for early entrance to kindergarten.


Early Entrance to Kindergarten is considered a whole grade acceleration. The assessment is rigorous and is used to determine if your child is gifted to the extent that they could be accelerated to first grade. Typically, the evaluation considers academic, social, behavioral and developmental factors. Our Director of Gifted Education, Dr. Brian Billings, coordinates the testing and can provide parents with more information about the assessment itself. Dr. Billings can be contacted at [email protected] or 419-874-9131, ext. 2119.  


In order to be assessed, students must live within the Perrysburg Schools attendance area. Parents/guardians may request an assessment application on or after March 1st by contacting Patty Haar at [email protected].
