District and Board responsibility
This is the Recommendation for Approval of changes to Policy JEB, "Entrance Age Requirements". The recommended changes are necessary to conform to a change in state law regarding the cutoff date for entrance eligibility into Kindergarten, 1st grade, Pre-K, and other appropriate situations. Specifically, the changes move the eligibility date for certain grades from October 16th to August 31st of the year in which the child is presented for enrollment. This change was considered by the CMS Policy Committee on Oct. 12th and was recommended for approval by the full Board by a 4-0 vote.
