Early bird registration begins for DCSD 4K programs

DARLINGTON, SC (News Release) - The Darlington County School District will hold a Spring Registration for our four-year-old Kindergarten classes, according to the district.

The following information was released by the Darlington County School District:

Parents are asked to bring the following information when registering their child: 1) Medicaid Card (if available); 2) Birth Certificate; 3) Current Immunization Record; 4) Social Security Card; and 5) Proof of Residence (utility bill, phone bill, property tax receipt, etc.).

Hartsville registration for four-year-old kindergarten will be held on Friday, May 1, 2015 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, at Hartsville Adult Education, located at 437 West Carolina Avenue.

Darlington registration for four-year-old kindergarten will be held on Friday, May 1, 2015 at the Darlington Adult Education Building at 100 Magnolia Street, Darlington between 9:00 am-2:00 pm.

Four-year-old kindergarten classes in Lamar and Society Hill will take place at Lamar Elementary School and Rosenwald Elementary/Middle School on Friday, May 1, 2015 between 9:00 am-2:00 pm.

The four-year-old child development program for the Darlington County School District is a district and state-funded program for children in Darlington County who will be four-years-old on or before September 1, 2015. In August 2013, Darlington County was awarded funds to initiate full-day Child Development Education Pilot Program (CDEPP) classrooms. Seven full-day, 4K classrooms were established across geographical areas of the county.

In June 2014, additional funds made it possible to add seven more full-day classrooms. These classrooms will replace half-day programs already in existence in Hartsville and Darlington. This funding resulted from the CDEPP project being integrated into the Read to Succeed Legislation that was signed into law by Governor, Nikki Haley on June 11, 2014.

Cain Elementary School, Pate Elementary School, St. John's Elementary School, Lamar Elementary School, Rosenwald Elementary/Middle School, Southside Early Childhood Center, and Washington Street Elementary School now offer full-day CDEP classrooms. The acronym for this model has now been renamed CDEP (Child Development Education Program), since the “Pilot” has ended.
