Children who will be five years of age on or before September 1 of
the school year during which they wish to enroll will be eligible to
enter kindergarten in September. No waivers or exceptions to this
policy will be allowed.
A student transferring into the school district whose age is less
than the minimum specified above must show evidence of regular
attendance for more than 50% of the school year in full-day kindergarten
in another school system.
Initial admission of children to the first grade (or other grades)
will involve a consideration of both chronological age and the readiness
of the children to do the work of those grades.
