If you have a child who will be five years old on or before September 1, you need to register them with the school district.
Parents/Guardians are allowed the right to petition for early admission to kindergarten if their child is eligible.
The Mount Horeb Area School Board has revised Policy #421.1 LEGAL AGE, KINDERGARTEN PUPILS to include the following conditions and procedures:
* The child's fifth birthday should be after September 1 and before January 1, inclusive.
* The child demonstrates academic, social, emotional, physical and mental maturity normally expected for successful participation in kindergarten.
* Written request made by the child's parent(s)/guardian by March 15 to the school district administrator. (If parent(s)/guardian move into the district after March 15, a request must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the school year.)
* Screening, observation and evaluation by district personnel will determine the eligibility for early entrance to kindergarten.
