Step 1: Determine the student’s eligibility
- Children age 5 by September 1, 2015, and not age 21 on the first day of school are eligible for enrollment in TCPS for the 2015-2016 school year.
- Prekindergarten, age 4 by September 1
- Kindergarten, age 5 by September 1
- First grade, age 6 by September 1
Step 2: Identify and contact the school
You should register at the child’s local school. To determine what the local school is for a specific address, check the Boundary Map Locator or call for information at 410-822-0330 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays.
Step 3: Verify age, identity, residency, and immunization compliance
Parents registering their children for the first time in a Talbot County public school must provide proof of age, identity, county residency, and immunizations.
Students who have previously attended school should bring their latest report card, if available. Students receiving special education services should bring a copy of the current Individualized Education Program (IEP).
