Student Age Requirements

In accordance with California State Law, a student’s grade level placement will be based on their date of birth. Students will be placed in the appropriate grade using this Grade Level Placement Chart. A student will be eligible for kindergarten enrollment if their birth date is on or before September 1st of the school year they wish to apply.

Students entering TK/Kindergarten, please review the following information::

          • TK is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program
          • A child is eligible for TK if he or she turns five between September 2nd-December 2nd.
          • Students who are age-eligible for Kindergarten are allowed to choose TK if their 5th birthday is between June 1 and September 1.

Children who are age-eligible to attend kindergarten, but choose to enroll in TK will be asked to review and sign the Kindergarten Continuance Form in the spring. This will verify that the parent/guardian agrees to have his/her child continue in kindergarten for one additional year.
