The district will not be offering a Transitional Kinder class, due to the fact that it is not being funded in the most up to date budget plan from the state.
The district will move birthdate back to November 1.
The district will allow students with birth dates between Nov 2 and Dec 2 to complete an Early Admit to Kinder enrollment..(EC48000 Allows us to give early admission to those students.)
Early Admit is a 2 year commitment by the parent of the kinder students with the Nov 2 to Dec 2 birthdays. They will sign an early admit form, the draft is attached, and a continuation form at time of registration.
Accelerations would be based on academic skills and social-emotional skills and will be decided by teacher and admin, as it is now referenced in AR 5123(a), in order to accelerate the Early Admit Kinders into first grade instead of repeating Kinder.
These early admit kinders will be in the same classrooms as the regular kinders, teachers will decide the curriculum, grouping etc..for these students, we are projecting 5 or 6 per school site.
Trailer Language states we will receive full funding for the early admit Kinders.
