How old does my child need to be to enter kindergarten?

Based on state statute governing school districts, students must turn 5 by September 1st of the enrollment year.

As a result, parents sometimes request early enrollment in transitional kindergarten. A decision to make an early enrollment placement is based on an evaluation conducted by school staff and a recommendation by the school principal based on the results of that evaluation and the judgment of the principal.
