Submit Kindergarten Applications Now Through February 14

The neighborhood’s elementary school open house sessions have been rolling since November, and if your child was born in 2009, the time has finally come to send in those kindergarten applications.

This year, the Department of Education has introduced Kindergarten Connect, an online system that allows you to complete the application process online. You can check out an instructional video below:

Parents are also invited to submit applications over the phone by calling 718-935-2400, or in person at an Enrollment Office.

The deadline to submit applications is February 14. For more information, visit the DOE website, call 718-935-2009, or email
