Registering Your Child for School for the Next School Year

Students New to BCPS: Grades Pre-K-12, including those entering kindergarten.

Parents/guardians may begin the registration process through the Focus Parent Portal or
by visiting your zoned school.  The attached registration checklist provides helpful tips.

Kindergarten Students

Children must be 5 years old by September 1 to enroll in kindergarten.

Pre-Kindergarten Students

Students must be four years old on or before September 1 to be considered for enrollment. Unlike enrollment for K-12, seats are limited in the pre-kindergarten program. The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) requires that the Pre-K program be made available to students who meet automatic eligibility criteria based on educational or financial need. If space is available once the automatically eligible students have registered, other students may be placed from the applicant pool on a priority basis.

Pre-School Students

Students must be three years old on or before September 1 to be considered for enrollment. Unlike enrollment for K-12, seats are limited in the preschool program. Students are registered on a priority basis, with priority registration given to those students who demonstrate educational and/or financial need.
