In Germany, there is compulsary school attendance. What does that mean?

For the registration at a regular school a normed process must be followed:
1. As soon as the city of Rietberg gets to know about the arrival of immigrated children who have to go to school, the town council reports them collectively every two weeks to the communal integration centre („Kommunale Integrationszentrum“ (KIZ) of the district of Gütersloh.
2. Then the „KIZ“ invites the children to a consultation with a teacher. At the same time, there is a medical examination for the children („Schuleingangsuntersuchung“).
3. The teacher proposes a matching school dependent on the education and the address of each child.
4. The accepting school and the town council report on this decision.
5. The „KIZ“ gets into contact with the school management of the proposed school and finds out, if the child can be accepted there.
6. The school management then gets a recording form of the consultation mentioned above.
The whole process can take up to – just because of the increasing number of cases – last two to four weeks. in the meantime the school managements are preoccupied with offering temporary, uncomplicated solutions, e.g. the participation in art working-groups („Kunst-AG“) or the admission as a guest student or something similar.
This is important for the children’s or young people’s integration.

Is there a possibility for younger children to attend a „Kindergarten“?

– In principle there is the possibility that also children of refugees can visit a „Kindergarten“ in Rietberg. However it is decisive if there are free capacities in the parts of the town.
– Here it is important if there is a good prognosis to be allowed to stay.
– Each „Kindergarten“ decides on its own.
– There are waiting lists.
