    Complete the online pre-registration application and choose your phone appointment. We recommend using a non-mobile device to complete this task, as it is more accessible with access to a keyboard.

    • The online application for Kindergarten will be available from November 6, 2021, to April 7, 2022 (The formal registration period) and will re-open on May 23, 2022. You can access the application at any time to begin reviewing and editing your student's information. Applications should only be completed by families who meet the residency requirements.
    • All incoming Kindergarten students entering September 2022 must select "Fall 2022 – Kindergarten ONLY" as their appointment type.
    • The final step of the online application requires you to select an appointment time for your phone interview with one of our registrars. Please make sure you complete this step and note the appointment date and time before exiting the application. If you need help scheduling your phone call registration appointment, please call us at 508-424-3420.
    • Interview appointments will take place by phone beginning December 6, 2021. Please note that all families who complete registration during our first Kindergarten enrollment period (December - April) will have equal weight for school assignment preferences.

    INTERVIEW OVER THE PHONE

    • At the time chosen (STEP 2), you will receive a phone call from one of our registrars to discuss the next steps necessary to complete your child's registration.
    • We will verify the documents submitted electronically by you during the phone interview appointment. The student enrollment is not complete until the Welcome Center staff has validated all of the documents required to complete registration.
    • We will discuss the choice process, including the timeline for decision-making. You will receive information about your choice form.
    • Significant: All the information regarding language exposure will be reviewed by our Multilingual Department, and a determination will be made whether or not language proficiency testing is necessary. Your child will be required to come for an English proficiency evaluation. Program recommendations will be made according to the test results. Testers will discuss results with parents.

    Students entering Kindergarten in 2022 will continue to be assigned through a Controlled Choice Program. Under Controlled Choice, families can choose from among all nine Framingham elementary schools. Students who require a specialized program (Special Education or English Language Learner Program) will be placed per the guidelines of each department in consultation with the family.


    Great opportunities for you to know our schools better and the enrollment process:


    HOW ASSIGNMENTS ARE MADE

    ASSIGNED FIRST:   DUAL LANGUAGE PROGRAMS
    Students requesting a seat for ANY of the Dual Language Program (Spanish and/or Portuguese at Barbieri, Brophy, Potter Road, and Harmony) will be assigned as follows:

    1. Sibling Preference
      IMPORTANT: Sibling preference applies to the school building only, not to the program (except Barbieri School).
    2. Home district preference
      Only for Brophy, Potter Road, and Harmony.
      Barbieri does not have a Home District Preference.
    3. All other first choices of school requests
    4. All other second choices of school requests

    Important information: Once you choose a Dual Language Program and your student is assigned a seat, no other choices of schools or preferences such as home district or sibling will apply

    ASSIGNED SECOND:  
    Students who choose their Sibling Preference school as their first choice

    ASSIGNED THIRD:  
    Students who choose their Home District preference as their first choice. You don't know your home district school? Please check our directory by address.

    ASSIGNED FOURTH:  
    Students whose first choice is NOT their Sibling or Home District preference school. 


    HOME DISTRICT
    Each student has designated a Home District school based on their home address. Students who live within one mile of the King School may currently qualify for two Home Districts. During the registration appointment, parents will be asked to choose which Home District they wish to designate as their own. Home District may influence school assignments. If you have questions about your student's Home District School, please call or email the Parent Information Center. Some schools may have few or no seats available after siblings and first-choice Home District students have been assigned. You don't know your home district school? Please check our directory by address. Barbieri does not have a Home District Preference.
    Home District Street Listing


    LOTTERIES
    Are conducted for any school where the number of first-choice requests exceeds the number of available seats.


    WAITING LISTS

    Dual Language Programs:
    Any student who is not assigned to their requested Dual Language Program will be placed on a waiting list(s) for the language programs they were not assigned to. Dual Language Program waiting lists remain active until the start of second grade. 
    General Education/SEI/Inclusion: 
    Waiting lists will be capped at 44 students and will be maintained for the top two choices if assigned to a first or second choice is not possible. If the first or second choice school waiting list has reached 44 students, we will add your child to two waiting lists that are not capped at 44 in the order of your numbered preferences from your School Choice form. All General Education waiting lists dissolve on Friday,  September 30, 2022.
