Early Kindergarten Screening Signups Open Through June 1

Requests for early entrance into Dysart’s kindergarten program for the 2024-2025 school year will be accepted from May 9 through June 1, 2024. Eligible children must turn five prior to December 31 to qualify. Interested parents may register their child for the Early Entrance Into Kindergarten Screener at

Typically, children must turn five prior to August 31 in the school year for which they are applying to begin kindergarten. However, the Dysart Schools Governing Board approved a readiness screener as an option for those families that want to have their child(ren) screened for possible early kindergarten entry.  The screening, which may last up to 40 minutes, will be administered by a Dysart kindergarten teacher, and parents will be notified of the results within 7-10 business days after completion. During the screening, the child will work one-on-one with a certified teacher to take a variety of short assessments.   

The Early Entrance Into Kindergarten Screener will be offered on June 11, June 18 and July 8, and screening will take place between 8am and 3pm. There is a $60 nonrefundable fee for the screener. Screenings will take place at the Dysart district office, located at 15802 North Parkview Place, in Surprise. Details on the program are available at, or by calling the Academic Services Department at 623-876-7173.
