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

     
 

To enter kindergarten, a child must be five (5) years of age on or before August 1st. A birth certificate (one issued by the health department in the county where the child was born) and a record of immunizations shall also be presented before the first day of attendance.

   
 

Incoming students will be evaluated by a building team of professionals who will determine the developmental placement of each incoming student prior to assignment of an appropriate kindergarten level (pre-kindergarten or kindergarten).

     
 

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 AG 5112C).

The Superintendent shall establish administrative guidelines which ensure compliance with State law, proper documentation of birth as well as a certified copy of any custody order or decree, appropriate screening, placement, and periodic assessment of children in kindergarten and first grade programs, certification that proper immunization is completed or in process, and the prompt transfer of records. 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.
