Kindergarten Registration Age Cutoff Date

Policy Change

The Board of Education approved a policy change regarding the cutoff date for a child to turn five in order to enter kindergarten at the December meeting. The previous policy stated that a child must be five by September 30 of the year they are going to enroll in kindergarten. The latest change moved the cutoff date from September 30 to August 1 effective for the 2017-2018 school year. This same change also affected preschool and first grade. This does not affect students currently enrolled. The following are some of the reasons for the date change:
 
SCHOOL OF INNOVATION APPLICATION PROCESS 2017-2018

The School of Innovation application process for the 2017-18 school year is beginning in November 2016 with the CogAT administration for current second graders.  Results from 2nd grade CogAT testing are expected in January 2017.  The lottery application for School of Innovation process will also be open in January 2017.
