2021-2022 School Year Enrollment: Prekindergarten & Kindergarten
Registration for Kindergarten and Prekindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year opens on Saturday, April 10. Wicomico County Public Schools is pleased to have its registration process all online and accessible through a home page button, on school system’s website at www.wcboe.org, which leads to the Enrollment page.
Parents and guardians are encouraged to register children for the 2021-2022 school year as early as possible, so that families and schools can begin to plan and prepare. Prekindergarten 3-Year-Old classes are located at Beaver Run (WELC), Pemberton and Fruitland. This upcoming school year we plan to open two new Prekindergarten 3-Year-Old classrooms. One classroom will be located at Chipman Elementary and the other at West Salisbury Elementary. We encourage families in these catchment areas to apply now. (These two programs are pending a Prekindergarten Expansion Grant approval from the Maryland State Department of Education in May.)
We have exciting news: Pending approval of that same PreKindergarten Expansion Grant in May, Delmar Elementary will be our final school to transition from half-day Prekindergarten to a full-day program. Three full-day classrooms at Delmar Elementary have been proposed in this year’s grant funding.
Children registering for Kindergarten must turn 5 by Sept. 1, 2021. Kindergarten is mandatory for all Maryland children who are 5 by that date unless the parents or guardians have completed a Kindergarten-Level of Maturity Waiver Form seeking later admission. For information please contact Sandra Drummond, Early Childhood supervisor, at 410-677-4523 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prekindergarten is not mandatory for Maryland students, but provides an excellent foundation for children’s success in school. There are two Prekindergarten options in Wicomico Schools:
Prekindergarten 4 is offered at elementary schools with primary grades throughout Wicomico County to qualified children who will be 4 by Sept. 1, 2021. Currently all Prek-4 programs are full day except the one at Delmar Elementary, which is half-day pending approval in May of funding for expanding to full day as part of a Prekindergarten Expansion Grant.
Prekindergarten 3 is also offered at some Wicomico schools with primary grades, and is open to qualified children who will be 3 by Sept. 1, 2021.

Students through age 20 who have not already earned a high school diploma, satisfied graduation requirements for a diploma, or completed high school educational requirements in a foreign county are eligible to attend Wicomico County Public Schools if the student resides in Wicomico County on a full-time basis with their legal guardian(s).
Wicomico County works hard to ensure every parent/guardian who resides in Wicomico County has access to register his or her student(s). This website provides valuable enrollment information for legal guardian(s) and students.
