Children who will reach six (6) years of age on or before October 15 of the school year and who have not completed a kindergarten program shall be enrolled upon entrance to school in a kindergarten program.  As a result of the teacher’s and parents’ judgment, test results and the child’s performance, it will be determined whether the child will remain in Kindergarten or will be enrolled in Grade One.
