JEB:  ENTRANCE AGE

 

In an attempt to permit children to enter kindergarten or first grade at the time most appropriate for them individually, the School Committee establishes the following policy on entrance age:

 

1.         Children who will be five years of age on or before August  31 of the school year during which they wish to enroll will be eligible to enter kindergarten in September.

 

2.         Initial admission of children to the first grade (or other grades) will involve a consideration of both chronological age and the readiness of the children to do the work of those grades.
