Children in the school district community will be allowed to enroll in the school district’s regular education program beginning at age five (5). The child must be age five (5) on or prior to September 15 to participate in the school district’s kindergarten program. The child must be age six (6) on or prior to September 15 to begin the first grade of the education program.
The board shall require evidence of age and residency in the form of a birth certificate or other evidence before the student may enroll in the school district’s education program. It shall be within the discretion of the superintendent to determine what satisfactory proof of age evidence is.
Prior to enrollment, the child must provide the administration with their health and immunization certificate, as well as verification of a recent dental screening. Failure to provide this information within the time period set by the superintendent shall be reason for suspension, expulsion or denying admission to the student. An exception to this would be a homeless student.
