If you're planning to send your child to kindergarten (or grades 6 or 9) this fall, you need to register in the first round to maximize your chances of getting a school you're happy with. Registration ends Feb. 5. There is a second round that begins Feb. 10, but there are fewer slots available.
First-round results should be mailed to families in early-to-mid March. Second-round results are sent out in May.
