REQUIRED DOCUMENTS

The following documents will be required at the time of enrollment. You can either upload the documentation during the online registration process or bring them to the Administration Office for photocopies. 
  • Proof of Residency (photocopy of utility bill, tax statement, house buy/sell agreement or rental agreement).
  • Up-To-Date Immunization Record.
  • Photocopy of your child’s original Certified Birth Certificate.
    Please note it must be a certified copy, not the hospital certificate that shows the child's footprints. If you don't have a certified birth certificate, you can order one from the County Clerk's Office in the county where your child was born. You may download ordering instructions for Kent or Ottawa County by clicking on the appropriate link:

KINDERGARTEN PROGRAMS

JPS offers age-appropriate yet challenging curriculum for both Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs for children who will be five years old on or before December 1.
  • Transitional Kindergarten is a full-day, every-day program located at our Early Childhood Center.
  • Kindergarten is a full-day, every-day program located at each of our elementary schools.
  • All children entering either Kindergarten program must be screened prior to placement. 
  • Questions can be directed to our District Registrar Lorri Gierman.
All Kindergarten programs are available to children who reside in Jenison as well as the surrounding area. Through the Schools of Choice program, Jenison Public Schools accepts students residing in Ottawa, Kent, Allegan, and Muskegon counties without the necessity of a release from the district of residence.
SPANISH IMMERSION KINDERGARTEN
Jenison Public Schools also offers a Spanish Immersion Kindergarten program. In this program, English-speaking students will learn the district’s rigorous core academic program through instruction in Spanish. Spanish is the means of content instruction, not just a subject of instruction. Many research studies have shown the effectiveness of language immersion programs in language and cognitive development.
 

SCHOOLS OF CHOICE

Jenison Public Schools offer outstanding instructional and extra-curricular programs and, through Schools of Choice, is pleased to offer these programs to non-resident students.  Most students residing within the Ottawa, Kent, Muskegon, or Allegan Counties may attend Jenison Public Schools under Schools of Choice.

HOW DOES SCHOOLS OF CHOICE WORK?

Districts across West Michigan have agreed to accept and release students across district boundaries provided students meet requirements.  Parents will complete the Schools of Choice Application as part of the online registration.

IF ONE CHILD IS ACCEPTED, WILL SIBLINGS BE ACCEPTED?

Yes, siblings are accepted provided they meet the requirements. Once children are enrolled they are considered Jenison Public Schools students until graduation.

CAN I REQUEST A SPECIFIC SCHOOL BUILDING?

Yes, we will make every effort to honor your request. If classes are full at your requested building you will be notified and we will work with you prior to placing your child at another building.

IS TRANSPORTATION AVAILABLE FOR SCHOOLS OF CHOICE STUDENTS?

Students who live outside of the Jenison Public Schools enrollment boundaries are not normally transported. However, this decision is based on whether the student can be picked up at an existing bus stop. Our transportation department will work with you in determining if transportation is available.
