Kindergarten enrollment is now open for the 2023-2024 school year

Kearney School District’s kindergarten enrollment for the 2023-2024 academic year is now open! If you have a child who will be age five on or before July 31, 2023, this is the time to enroll them in kindergarten! 

Start the kindergarten enrollment process by clicking the link provided below. You will then schedule a kindergarten screening appointment for your child after the kindergarten enrollment process is completed. 


  • If you already have a username and password: Enter that information into the windows on the left side of the page to access the Registration Gateway, then click “Add a Student” from the options on the left
  • If you are new to this system: Click the “Registration Gateway” link and then click “Start” on the next screen to create a username and password
  • For assistance with this process: Email reghelp@ksdr1.net

You will be required to provide a birth certificate, a record of required immunizations, and a proof of residence for your child during kindergarten enrollment. Use our online district boundary map to locate the elementary school your child will attend.

After completing the enrollment process, you will schedule a kindergarten screening.  Please use the KG screening link to set up an appointment on March 8 or April 12 at the KSD Early Education Center. If those dates do not work, please email Brittney King at kingb@ksdr1.net to set up an appointment at the Early Education Center or at your home with one of our Parents as Teachers Educators. Parent Educators screen to help KSD plan for classes and needs for each incoming kindergarten class.  Parent Educators will also provide at home activities, information about summer programs as well as answer any questions parents/guardians may have.

Your child’s elementary school will host a Kindergarten Orientation on March 28 this year. Kindergarten Orientation is an opportunity for families to receive helpful information about KSD, tour their school and meet their child’s teachers and building principal. We’re excited to welcome the Bulldogs Class of 2036!
