Kindergarten Proposal On Governor's Desk
A proposal to move up the cutoff date to meet kindergarten age requirements is headed to the governor. The measure was approved by the Senate yesterday. Currently, children must be 5 years old by Sept. 30 to enroll in kindergarten. The measure moves that cutoff date to Aug. 31 in the school year beginning in 2013, and to Aug. 15 the following year.
