Early Admission to Kindergarten

Students whose birth date falls between Sept. 2 and Dec. 31, 2014 may apply for early admission to kindergarten.
The early admission process involves a screening of your child’s knowledgeand understanding, motor skills, communication skills, and social/emotional development, along with an observation of your child in a kindergarten classroom.Early admission screening and classroom observations take place during a two-week window in April with final decisions in early May. Screenings will be held at teh Student Placement Center and with classroom observations scheduled at an SPPS site. Enrolling a child in kindergarten early is an important decision that may have a long-term impact on their educational progress. Please note that the decision of the screening team is final and cannot be appealed. All children who are ready for early kindergarten will be monitored throughout the fall to determine if their skills reflect the abilities needed to continue in kindergarten.
Students recommended for early admission to kindergarten will be enrolled after all kindergarten-eligible students are placed. Please register for the Early Admission to Kindergarten Screening by Thursday, March 21, 2019. Students will be screened at the Student Placement Center.
