    Your child is eligible to begin Kindergarten at New Albany Schools in the 2019-2020 school year if your child will be five years old on or before August 1, 2019 and meets the residency requirements.

    New Albany-Plain Local Schools will offer a tuition-based, all-day Kindergarten program for 2019-2020. You can find details about the program from ELC Principal, Michelle Unger here.
