Early Entrance to Kindergarten
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.If further clarification of the above procedure is needed, please contact Nicole Tepe, School Psychologist, at 437-2400 (ext. 6103).
