Children in the school District community will be allowed to enroll in the school District's regular education program beginning at age five. The child must be age five (5) on or prior to September 15 to participate in the school District's kindergarten program. The child must be age six (6) on or prior to September 15 to begin the first grade of the education program.
The Board will require evidence of age and residency in the form of a birth certificate or other evidence before the student may enroll in the school District's education program. It is within the discretion of the superintendent to determine what is satisfactory evidence for proof of age.
Prior to enrollment, the child must provide the administration with their health and immunization certificate, as well as verification of a recent dental screening. Failure to provide this information within the time period set by the superintendent is reason for suspension, expulsion or denying admission to the student. An exception to this would be a homeless student.
Students enrolling in the District after the first day of regular classes will have one day for orientation, testing and/or scheduling purposes prior to beginning work in the classroom unless circumstances prohibit such. The classroom teacher will have this one school day to make preparation for the new student(s) prior to admittance to class. The building administrator/ designee will be responsible for the orientation, testing and/or scheduling.
