5112 - ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS

The School Board shall establish student entrance requirements which are consistent with Indiana law and sound educational practice and which ensure equitable treatment and proper placement.

 

A.

Kindergarten

     
 

Each child of legal settlement shall be eligible for Kindergarten providing that s/he has attained the age of five (5) on or before August 1st. This requirement also shall apply to children who transfer into the School Corporation and who may have attended private or public kindergarten in another locality.

     
 

B.

First Grade

     
 

If a child seeking to enroll in first grade has not attended kindergarten, the Superintendent shall make a determination as to whether the student will enroll in kindergarten or first grade based upon the assessment model found in the administrative guidelines (see AG5112B) and initiate the prompt transfer of any previous school records.

The Superintendent shall establish administrative guidelines providing for compliance with State law, proper documentation of birth as well as a certified copy of any custody order or decree, and certification that proper immunization is completed or in process. Any indication that a student might be a missing child should be reported immediately to the Superintendent who, in turn, shall communicate with the appropriate authorities.

These guidelines shall include an appeal procedure for early entrance to kindergarten that is in accordance with any guidelines promulgated by the State Department of Education.
