Kindergarten Eligibility

Per state law, students must be 5 years old on or before August 15, 2017 to enroll in Kindergarten. However, students who will not turn 5 on or before August 15, 2017 may be considered for early entrance into Kindergarten. Please use the information below to determine if your child may be eligible for early entrance into Kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year.

Consideration For Early Entrance Into Kindergarten

If The Student Reaches Age 5 By August 15, 2017, The Student Meets The Kindergarten Age Requirement, And Early Kindergarten Entry Screening Is NOT Necessary.

If the student will not reach age 5 by the regular deadline of August 15, 2017, but will be 5 years old by September 30, 2017, he/she can be screened for early Kindergarten entry. See details below.

If the student will not reach age 5 until after September 30, 2017, he/she must wait until fall 2018 to begin Kindergarten.
