All District 11 schools offer free full-day kindergarten.
Children must be five years of age on or before October 1 to enroll in kindergarten. If a student is transferring from a parochial, private or other public school at the kindergarten or first-grade level and does not meet the District 11 entrance age requirements, it is recommended that the principal, teacher and a supervisor screen the student as an exception and make a decision at the building level.
Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education
The Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education (CLDE) Office supports students who are learning English as a second language. Our English Language Development (ELD) program supports culturally and linguistically diverse students so that they can participate equally and meaningfully in the classroom. Our ELD program provides rigorous instruction to English language learners to develop their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in order for them to achieve grade-level proficiency and become successful in workforce and post-secondary environments. Colorado Springs School District 11 is committed to supporting our culturally and linguistically diverse students and their families. We currently serve students and parents who speak 52 languages other than English. We provide translation and interpreter services to ensure good communication between our schools, our parents and community members.
