Policy Title: Entrance - Admissions
Code No. 501.4

Children in the school district community will be allowed to enroll in the school district's regular education program beginning at age five. The child must be age five on or prior to September 15 to participate in the school district's kindergarten program. The child must be age six on or prior to September 15 to begin the first grade of the education program.

The board will require evidence of age in the form of a birth certificate or other evidence, and evidence of residency, before the student may enroll in the school district's education program. It is within the discretion of the superintendent or designee to determine what is satisfactory evidence for proof of age and residency.

Prior to enrollment, the child must provide the administration with their health and immunization certificate showing evidence of immunizations required by law, unless immunization is not required for the child’s enrollment because such immunization would be injurious to the health or well-being of the child or his or her family or because such immunization conflicts with the child’s religion in accordance with law. Failure to provide this information within the time period set by the superintendent or designee is reason for suspension, expulsion or denying admission to the student. A student may be provisionally enrolled if the student has begun the required immunizations and continues to receive the necessary immunizations as rapidly as is medically feasible in accordance with state law.
