501.2 - Entrance Admissions

Children in the school district community will be allowed to enroll in the district’s regular education program beginning at age five. The child must be age five on or prior to September 15th to participate in the district’s kindergarten/junior kindergarten program. The child must be age six on or prior to September 15th to begin in first grade of the education program.

Before the student may enroll in the district’s education program, the school board will require evidence of age and residency in the form of a birth certificate or other evidence of age. It is within the discretion of the superintendent [or designee] to determine what is satisfactory evidence for proof of age and residency.

Prior to enrollment, the parent/legal guardian must provide the administration with their child’s health and immunization certificate. Failure to provide this information within the time period set by the superintendent [or designee] is reason for suspension, expulsion, or denying admission to the student.
