Kindergarten Registration Parent Information


Are you the parent of a child who will be entering kindergarten next year?

Parents are invited to a spring Parent Information Meeting at their child’s school to learn more about the 2019-2020 school year. 


Our agenda will include:

  • A presentation from the principal, guidance counselor, and teachers

  • Guidance on how to prepare your child for kindergarten

  • Information about the kindergarten curriculum

  • The importance of school/parent communication

  • Bus and drop-off transportation information

  • Information about summer kindergarten screening

  • A question and answer session


*This information night is for parents only. Students will have an opportunity to visit their school for screening at a later date in the summer.


Visit dublinschools.net/kindergartenregistration.aspx to begin the online registration process.  As part of the process, you will be asked to schedule an in-person appointment at our Central Office (7030 Coffman Road, Dublin OH  43017).


Note that placements for AM/PM kindergarten are made at the individual building level.  More information on this process will be discussed at the Parent Information Meeting.


If you have had a child attend kindergarten previously, you may be comfortable with what to expect, and your attendance is not required.

COSI on Wheels

COSI

We have invited COSI on Wheels to Daniel Wright Elementary. The Human Machine is coming to our school January 28th and 29th. For this event to be successful we will need many volunteers for hands on stations and tear down.  COSI is bringing the Human Machine to our students. COSI's body mechanic helps students learn what it takes to keep their body engines in tip top shape. Explore the digestive, nervous, and circulatory systems, plus learn about nutrients and how exercise keeps a body healthy. We would like everyone on the day to learn and have fun including you! We will need volunteers for the AM and PM sessions. You may volunteer for both sessions.

CogAT Assessment for second grade students

Informational Overview


CogAT Assessment for second grade students


December 2018


During the month of November, students in second grade were administered the CogAT test of

cognitive abilities. This assessment was administered as a rolling administration, meaning that

the date and time was dependent upon the building and students’ schedule. The range of dates

for administration was November 7 – 20.

Grade 2 CogAT student score report and results letter will arrive in the mail approximately

December 22nd or after. Student sample report and sample results letters will also be posted

on our district gifted services website: https://www.dublinschools.net/gifted.aspx

When viewing your child’s CogAT test scores, it is important to interpret them as representing a

range of ability rather than a precise, specific or unchanging point on a score scale. It is also

important to keep in mind that there are many factors that affect a child’s school achievement

such as effort, attention, persistence, attitude and support at home and school.

Please be aware that the CogAT is a test that measures both general and specific reasoning

abilities. Students are assessed in the areas of verbal, quantitative, and nonverbal abilities. A

Composite (VQN) score at or above 128 on this assessment meets the criteria

established by the Ohio Department of Education for a superior cognitive gifted

identification. Average scores on this assessment fall between 90 to 110. Above average

scores range from 111 to 127. Students who earn a score of 126-127 will be afforded a

cognitive ability retest opportunity later in the school year. Communication regarding this

retest opportunity will be shared after spring break. Another reminder to parents - students may

be referred for further cognitive ability testing during the spring and fall of each school year, and

all students participate in whole grade group ability testing again in fourth grade.
