Early Entrance to Kindergarten

The date for kindergarten students to enroll in Nebraska is established in state law. LB 1006 was passed and went into effect for the 2012 school year.

The law requires that children must be five years of age on or before July 31 prior to the school year. If a child turns five between August 1 to October 15, an application may be made for "early entrance" to kindergarten. All school districts are required to have a policy and procedure in place to provide an assessment of a child's readiness if the parent wishes to enroll the student who is not yet automatically age eligible.

Please contact the school district office with questions regarding early entrance requirements.
