2024–2025 Kindergarten Registration & Assessment Testing

Kindergarten Registration


For parents not able to register online contact the school in your attendance area. During registration, the paperwork necessary for enrollment in Lincoln Public Schools will be completed. Child need not be present.

When registering, you must provide:

  • Certified birth certificate
  • Current immunization record

Families who wish to have their child enroll at an LPS school outside of their attendance area should fill out a Special Attendance Permit which is available at any school or on our website. Questions about kindergarten registration should be directed to the school your child will attend.

Kindergarten Assessment Testing

In accordance with Nebraska statute, students may enter kindergarten if they turn five years of age on or before July 31. However, if your child was born between August 1 and October 15, they are eligible to participate in an assessment conducted by Lincoln Public Schools to determine possible early entrance to kindergarten.

You can complete an application online below. A certified copy of the student’s birth certificate issued by the state in which the child was born, or other reliable proof of the child’s identity and age, (passport, Visa, or Permanent Resident Card) is required.
