Children in the District community will be allowed to enroll in the District’s regular education program beginning at age five.  The child must be age four on or prior to September 15 to participate in the District’s preschool program.  The child must be age five on or prior to September 15 to participate in the District’s kindergarten program if schooled in Iowa, or prior to age five if equivalent to kindergarten after being schooled in another state.

The child must be age six on or prior to September 15 to begin the first grade of the education program if schooled in Iowa prior to first grade, or prior to age six if equivalent to first grade after being schooled in another state.

The Board will require evidence of age and residency in the form of a birth certificate or other evidence before the student may enroll in the District’s education program.  It is within the discretion of the superintendent to determine what is satisfactory evidence for proof of age.

Prior to enrollment, the child must provide the administration with their health and immunization certificate.  Failure to provide this information within the time period set by the superintendent is reason for suspension, expulsion or denying admission to the student.
