Birth Date Cutoff for Kindergarten Enrollment Moved to August 1
As a result of House Bill 235, the birthday cutoff for entrance to kindergarten will change from October 1 to August 1 beginning the 2017-2018 school year. This will require incoming kindergarten students to turn 5 on or before August 1.
Parents/guardians whose children do not meet the age requirements may inquire about the early entrance petition process by contacting the Marion County Board of Education at 270-692-3721. The deadline for submitting a petition for the 2017-2018 school year is June 15, 2017.
