Charter Schools
Charter Schools are independent public schools that are free from rules and regulations that apply to traditional public school districts unless specifically identified in charter school law.  In exchange for flexibility, charter school sponsors are to hold the schools accountable for results. Charter schools are non-sectarian, do not discriminate in their admission policies and may not charge tuition or fees.  In Missouri, any student residing in the Kansas City 33 School District or the St. Louis Public School District may choose to attend a charter school in the city in which they reside.

Although we have no local charter schools for Whiteman, the School Liaison Officer can help you identify charter schools in other areas for your upcoming PCS.

Students living in one district who wish to attend school in a different district must apply for and be officially accepted as a paying tuition student before starting their first day.

All children who are five years of age before August 1 will be eligible to enroll in kindergarten that same year. Parents enrolling children for the first time must present:
A copy of the child's birth certificate
Social security number
Evidence of enrollment or records of previous school attendance
Immunization records- should have Diphtheria, Polio, Measles, Rubella and Hepatitis B up to date.

Additionally, students starting kindergarten are required to have proof of vision screening.
