CHANGE IN BIRTHDAY CUTTOFF DATE FOR KINDERGARTEN

In 2012, the Kentucky Legislature changed the birthday eligibility cutoff date for kindergarteners effective in the 2017-18 school year. Children entering kindergarten must now turn 5 on or before August 1.

For resident students who turn 5 after August 1st, there is an additional process to registration. A petition must be completed for early kindergarten enrollment. This petition, as well as other guidelines, will be available during pre-registration in April. For parents seeking early admittance to Kindergarten, your child will have an additional assessment administered during your appointment, and you will be notified by letter as to whether they meet the requirements for early Kindergarten admittance. Parents/guardians may petition the Board to allow their child to enter school earlier than permitted under statutory age requirements. On receipt of a petition, the District shall conduct an evaluation process to help determine a student’s readiness to engage in and benefit from early entry to school.
