With an amendment to State Statute 21-4-102, effective August 1, 2021, a student may register in kindergarten in the year in which the student’s fifth birthday falls on or before August 1. Previously, the students birthday had to be on or before September 15.
Upon an approved request to the Board of Trustees, a student may register in kindergarten in the year in which his fifth birthday falls on or before September 15 if, based upon the kindergarten readiness assessment, the District determines that the student is mature enough (developmentally ready, both academically and socially) to attend kindergarten. Parents will need to submit an Application for Early Entrance to Kindergarten prior to May 1 of the year that precedes kindergarten enrollment.
If parents have questions regarding this change, please contact Dr. Lori Schieffer (principal) by email or 307-885-2380.
