According to Public Act 23-208, Section 1(a), students must turn 5 on or before September 1, 2024 to enter Kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year.
However, children who turn 5 between September 2 and December 31, 2024 may be admitted:
(1) upon a written request by the parent or guardian of such child and
(2) following an assessment of such child, conducted by the building principal and an appropriate certified staff member of the school, to ensure that admitting such child is developmentally appropriate.
Please send your written request to Kristen Santilli at the Office of Teaching & Learning at firstname.lastname@example.org and complete the assessment below:
Once the Office of Teaching & Learning has received your written request and you have completed the assessment, someone from the school where your child will be attending will contact you with further information on how to proceed.
