Early Entrance to Kindergarten or First Grade

The Tri-Valley Local School District considers a child eligible for entrance into kindergarten if they attain the age of five (5) on or before August 1st of the year they apply for entrance. A child under the age of six (6) who is enrolled in kindergarten will be considered of compulsory school age.

A child who does not meet the age requirement for admittance to kindergarten or first grade, but who will be five (5) or six (6) years old, respectively, prior to the first day of January of the school year in which admission is requested, shall be evaluated for early admittance upon referral by the child’s parent or guardian, an educator employed by the District, a preschool educator who knows the child, or a physician or psychologist who knows the child.

Early entrance is a decision that should involve careful deliberation. Please read the Parent’s Guide to Early Entrance for more information. If after reading you still feel strongly about early entrance, contact the building principal in the school your child will attend to begin the process.

The deadline for early entrance applications is April 1st of the school year in which kindergarten admission is requested.                 

                                                                                                                                 back to top

 


Where can I register my child for school?

ONLINE!  Parents/Legal Guardians are to register children by clicking on the Registration Gateway/NEW to TV  link to the right of this page.  At the end of registering your child,  you will be shown a calendar to make an appointment to take required paperwork to the appropriate school building.
