Enrollment Documents and Forms

Enrollment
Nearly all forms for enrollment will be handled via online registration at the time of enrollment. The informational documents and Title I letters listed below should be downloaded for reference but do not need to be brought to the school for registration. 
 
FERPA 
The Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) requires school districts to inform families each year about their rights relating to student records under FERPA and the types of information that are considered “directory information” that Noblesville Schools may disclose without parental consent such as by posting on school-related website, or sharing with the news media that cover our schools and military recruiters (high school students only). Parents/legal guardians have the right to opt out from the disclosure of "directory information" about their student by completing a FERPA Opt Out Form within 20 business days after enrolling or the start of school. FERPA Opt-Out Form needs to be printed and returned to you child's school within 20 business days after enrollment. 
 
Early Admission to Kindergarten

A child who is five years of age on or before August 1st may attend Kindergarten in the State of Indiana [Indiana Code 20-33-2-7]. Parents/guardians of a child who will turn five between August 1st and September 1st may appeal to be considered for early entrance [Indiana Code 20-33-2-7 (a)] by Noblesville Schools.


Noblesville Schools believes, in general, that it is in the best interest of the child to be five years old or older when entering kindergarten. Yet, in some circumstances, a child may benefit from early entrance if s/he has exhibited strong social, emotional, and academic behavior beyond their current age. If a parent/guardian wants to request an appeal for a waiver for early entrance to kindergarten, s/he must complete the Early Entrance Waiver Application by June 1st.


Each child that applies will be assessed the week of June 19, 2017. You will be contacted to set an appointment for your child’s assessment by Friday, June 9th. Your child must be available for testing during that assessment window. Additionally, an interview will be conducted with the parent/guardian to learn more about the child as well as discuss the challenges and benefits of early entrance.


Questions can be sent to Sarah Davis (sarah_davis@nobl.k12.in.us). Applications will be considered by a committee and committee decisions are final. The committee’s decision will be emailed to the parents/guardians no later than July 15th. Please DO NOT attempt to register for kindergarten or pay textbook fees until you receive notification this waiver has been approved.
