Kindergarten/First Grade Enrollment

On July 1, 1997, Senate Bill 572 went into effect in Missouri public school districts. Assessment testing for admittance into kindergarten was eliminated and replaced by the kindergarten/first grade entry age of 5 (five) or 6 (six) by August 1.  In 2008, House Bill 1678, the Education for Military Children Act, amended the kindergarten/first grade entry requirements.

Section 160.053, RSMo, states that:

  • A child is eligible for admission to kindergarten if the child reaches the age of five (5) before the first day of August of the school year beginning in that calendar year. 
  • A child is eligible for admission to kindergarten/first grade if the child is a military dependent and has successfully completed an accredited pre-kindergarten program or has attended an accredited kindergarten program in another state.
  • A child who reaches the age of five (5) prior to the cut-off date is eligible for admission to the summer school session immediately preceding kindergarten.
  • A child is eligible for admission to first grade if the child reaches the age of six (6) before the first day of August of the school year beginning in that calendar year.
  • "Any child who completes the kindergarten year shall not be required to meet the age requirements of a district for entrance into grade one."  This law does not specify the type of kindergarten program that must be completed prior to promotion to the first grade.  Most school districts accept successful completion of kindergarten at any accredited public, private or parochial school as sufficient basis for promotion to the first grade.  A child transferring from an unaccredited school, such as a home school, may be subject to additional evaluation to determine promotion.
