For the 2014-15 school year, KCS ELL teachers will work with parents and family members to schedule testing for students to determine official classification.  Testing will NOT occur at Kindergardent Round-Up as it has in past years.  Teachers will test students beginning the first week of school that teachers return in August.

Kindergarten Enrollment Age Requirements for 2014-15 

Under new state law, the start school date for rising-Kindergarteners has changed.   Children should be five by August 15, 2014 to enter school for the 2014-2015 school year.
 
#1. Early Entry for Students Turning Five Between August 15th and August 31st
(This step will only be for the 2014-2015 School Year as a transition to the new birthdate law.
If a child has a birth date and turns five between August 15-August 31, and has attended a state approved preschool, they may enroll in Kindergarten. These approved programs include:
·         District administered Preschool (Title I Preschool, Voluntary Preschool, special education preschool)
·         Head Start
·         Community, private preschools (see attached list)
 
#2. If a child has a birth date and turns five between August 15-August 31, 2014 and the parent would like Knox County School to consider early entry, they would follow these steps:
·         The parent should go to their zone school and ask for the “Parent Referral to the S-Team”.
·         The parent will fill out the “Parent Referral to the S-Team” and return it to the principal of the zoned school. 
·         The school will schedule a Support Team Meeting (S-Team) with the parent, the principal, a Kindergarten teacher representative, and the school psychologist to review the “Parent Referral to the S-Team”.
·         The team may recommend that the school psychologist/appropriate staff conduct a screening with the child. 
·         At the completion of the screening process, the S-Team will reconvene and make a recommendation regarding the parents’ request.  
 
#3. Early Entry for Students Turning Five After August 31
 
If a child has a birth date after August 31, 2014 and the parent would like Knox County Schools to consider early entry, they would follow these steps:
·         The parent should go to their zone school and ask for the “Parent Referral to the S-Team”.
·         The parent will fill out the “Parent Referral to the S-Team” and return it to the principal of the zoned school. 
·         The school will schedule a Support Team Meeting with the parent, the principal, a Kindergarten teacher representative, and the school psychologist to review the “Parent Referral to the S-Team”.
·         The team may recommend that the school psychologist conduct an evaluation for eligibility of the intellectually gifted criteria.  
·         The Individual Education Plan (IEP) Team may request permission for an evaluation by the school psychologist.   (The IEP Team includes the parent(s), the school principal, a Kindergarten teacher representative, and the school psychologist.)
·         At the completion of the testing, the Individual Education Plan (IEP) Team will reconvene to review the testing and make a decision regarding giftedness, and the need for an early entry.
