SALISBURY, Md. – School registration is available throughout the summer for all new students, according to the Wicomico County Board of Education.

Those students entering a different school or those who are new to the area must register for the upcoming school year, officials say. School offices are open weekdays throughout the summer from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. to apply.

Guardians must have the child’s birth certificate, immunization record, social security card and two proofs of residency, according to the WCBOE. Registration documents are available at http://www.wcboe.org/department/StudentAndFamilyServices/EnrollmentServices.

Children must be 5-years-old by Sept. 1 to register for kindergarten and 4-years-old by the same date to register for Prekindergarten, officials say. Kindergarten is mandatory for all children unless parents complete a waiver form.

Prekindergarten programs in Wicomico County are half-day except for children in the Judy Partnership Program and those in West Salisbury Elementary School and Charles H. Chipman Elementary School, according to the WCBOE.

Low-income children, those with health problems and those with prior experience in Head Start will receive priority for Prekindergarten admission, officials say. All others will be placed on a waiting list.

Enrollment staff will answer questions at the NAACP Back to School Rally Aug. 7 from 12:30-3 p.m. at Salisbury Middle School, according to officials. Parents can also contact enroll@wcboe.org, (410) 677-4479 or (410) 677-4400 for more information.
