Kindergarten Early Entry

Legislation Governing Early Entrance to Kindergarten

·       The General Assembly changed the statutory cut-off date in 2012 for initial admission to public schools from October 1 to August 1 and created an early enrollment option for those students not meeting the birthday deadline but wishing to attend kindergarten.

·       A parent may request early entrance to kindergarten if the child turns five years of age after the state’s kindergarten entrance date of August 1. Entrance shall be determined through standardized testing, parent ratings, and Early Entry Committee review.

·       Senate Bill 24 (SB 24), enacted during the 2012 Regular Session, amends KRS 158.030 by requiring each local school board to adopt a policy for parents or guardians to petition the board to enroll a child who does not meet the kindergarten age requirement of turning 5 years of age on or before October 1. It’s important to note the kindergarten age requirement of turning 5 years of age changes to August 1 in the 2017-2018 school year. The policy must include an evaluation process that will help determine a child’s readiness for school.
