Watch for your Kent calendar
          Our Kent City School calendars were mailed to residents in early August.  If you did not receive a calendar, please stop by the Administration Building at 321 North DePeyster Street to pick up a copy.

New to the district?
          If you are a new Kent resident or interested in enrolling your student in the Kent City Schools, enrollment forms are available at www.kentschools.net/enroll or call the New Student Registration Office at 330-676-7675 for more information.
          Our new Centralized Registration Center is a one-stop, convenient way for parents to enroll their children in the Kent City Schools.  We welcome our new families and want to make the enrollment process easy and efficient for them.

Information about the Five-Year Strategic Plan
     Kent City Schools recently completed its 2019-2024 Strategic Plan.  Thanks to the feedback from local business leaders, government officials, civic organization members, school district staff, board members, parents and the Kent community at large—we put together a plan covering five specific areas, including:

  • Academic Achievement
  • Climate, Diversity and Mental Health
  • Communications
  • Finances
  • Facilities, Safety and Security
