JEB Age of Entrance Policy




In an attempt to permit children to enter school at the time most appropriate for them individually, the School Committee establishes the following policy on entrance age:

1.  Children who will be five years of age prior to September 1st of the school year during which they wish to enroll will be eligible to enter kindergarten for that school year.

     The admission of children whose birthdays fall after September 1st will be solely at the school's discretion.

2.  Initial admission of children to the first grade (or other grades) will involve a consideration of both chronological age and the readiness of the children to do the work of those grades.
