  4. The parent is requested to provide an original or a certified copy of the student’s Birth Certificate. If a student has no such certificate, school personnel will contact the Office of Student Support Services to provide information to parents/guardians concerning submission of documentation.

  5. The parent is requested to provide a valid Social Security Card; however, this disclosure is voluntary.  For a student who is otherwise entitled to admittance but does not have a social security card, the local Superintendent will assign a temporary number in accordance with the directions specified by the State Department of Education. This number is used to generate the unique identifier which enables school officials to track student information such as transcripts, grades, and free/reduced lunch status.

                              
  6. To enter kindergarten, students must be five years old on or before September 1 (2)**; to enter first grade, students must be six years old on or before September 1 (2)**. Students who are six years old after September 2, have successfully completed public kindergarten in another state, and have been certified to attend first grade in that state may be accepted in first grade.  These students, however, will not automatically be accepted in first grade in this school system.  Grade placement will be made on the basis of test scores, performance, and/or demonstrated ability.

  7. For additional information, contact the Office of Student Support Services at 428-6890.
     

    **An opinion of the Attorney General states in effect that under the common law one’s age is computed by including the day of birth so that a given age is attained the day before the birthday anniversary.
