The policy of Edmonds School District will enroll a student in kindergarten or first grade if the child's fifth birthday for kindergarten, or sixth birthday for first grade is on or before August 31. Proof of birth date will be required to complete registration.

Recognizing that a variation of readiness for school exists, the district may waive the entrance age requirement for a child whose birthday falls between September 1 and October 31. Students with birthdays from November 1 through December 31 may be considered for early entrance on a highly individual basis when exceptional intellectual ability requires a placement in kindergarten or first grade in order to meet individual needs.

Procedures for making early entrance decisions shall be established by the Superintendent.
