Kindergarten orientation is March 20th at all Kalamazoo Public Schools elementary schools. Recent legislation in the State of Michigan has changed the entry age for kindergarten. Over the next two years, the entry age will gradually be changed to require children to be 5 years old by September 1st rather than the current cutoff date of December 1st.
Here’s how the entry ages will gradually change over the next few years:
• 2013-2014 School Year – at least 5 years of age on November 1, 2013.
• 2014-2015 School Year - at least 5 years of age on October 1, 2013.
• 2015-2016 School Year - at least 5 years of age on September 1, 2013.
