Student Criteria for Early Entrance:

  1. To be considered for early entrance students must turn 5 years old between September 2 and October 1 for Kindergarten or turn 6 years old between September 2 and October 1 for first grade.
  2. Requests for early entrance screening will not be accepted after October 1.
  3. Students under school age were previously enrolled in programs outside of the District (i.e. home schooling, a private correspondence program or a private school) must meet the early entrance criteria before they will be enrolled.
  4. To be admitted through early entrance procedures, as itemized in E 5111(d) Early Entrance Approval Checklist, the child must pass an early entry screening and demonstrate intelligence falling within the superior range.
  5. If the child meets the criteria for early entrance and is enrolled in kindergarten, it is important that parents and staff recognize that it is still a provisional placement. The parent and staff should re-evaluate within two weeks and again in a month to see if the child is making the transition smoothly.
