  • KCS Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

    Below are links to the videos outlining the procedures for morning drop off and afternoon pick up at Kaleidoscope Charter School.  These are good to review prior to the school year.  Please note the afternoon curbside pickup will be moved to the bus lane on the North side of the building.  This will create a more efficient flow and make the process safer.

    Enrollment Process

    Applications for the 2016-2017 school year are currently available. A separate application must be completed for each student applying for enrollment. Students who currently attend KCS do not need to reapply for the following school year.


    Initial waitlists are established during the annual lottery process which occured on Feburary 1, 2016. Families do not retain their position from the previous year’s waitlist. Families on a current waitlist must also submit an enrollment application, as they are not automatically included in the next year’s lottery. Following the lottery applications are processed in the order they are received. 

    Existing Families

    As per Minnesota State Statute if a student has a sibling enrolled at KCS, they will receive a sibling preference. However, enrollment is not assumed for siblings. Siblings wishing to enroll at KCS must submit an enrollment application prior to the deadline. This includes siblings who will be incoming Kindergarten students.



     Questions about the enrollment process can be sent to admissions@kcsmn.org
