Entrance Requirement

Children who are five (5) years of age on or before September 15 may be admitted to kindergarten. Children satisfying the age requirement may be admitted not later than the fourth week of school without referral to the Director of Elementary Education.

Parents must provide proof of birth date. That proof may be an official birth certificate, passport, a hospital or physician document of birth, an adoption record, or any reliable document.

Health and immunization certificates are required, as provided by law. If the child is homeless, the child shall be provisionally enrolled. The District will then seek the child’s immunization records and refer the student to immunization sources if necessary.

Students transferring from other schools shall be placed in the grades indicated by their report cards or transcripts. Any subsequent change in classification shall be discussed with the parents. The final placement shall be determined by the principals. Students with no official transcript or report card may be given a placement test.
