Early Admission

While we do not recommend early admission to kindergarten, there are students who would benefit from starting kindergarten earlier than the recommended age. If your child turns five-years-old after the first day of school and on or before October 31, your child is eligible for consideration for early admission to kindergarten, based upon the following procedures:

  1. Early Entrance to Kindergarten Request Form (below) received by April 1 of the year your child would enter school.
  2. A birth record certifying the age of your child.
  3. A completed early childhood screening.
  4. A Beginning of Kindergarten Assessment, which will be conducted by a team of experts. A decision will be made based on that assessment, which includes academic readiness, social-emotional and behavioral readiness, as well as developmental observations. We will schedule a meeting with you to discuss the results of the assessment.

If your child is recommended for early admission, they will be placed at a school with available space, after all kindergarten-eligible students are placed. All District decisions are final.
