The Floyd County Board of Education approved changes to Board Policy 8.22 Promotion-Retention at the regular meeting on March 28, 2017 at Prestonsburg Elementary to include an early enrollment option for Kindergarten students. Starting with next school year (2017-2018), all Kentucky students enrolling in Kindergarten would have to be five years old on or before August 1, 2017. This cut-off date for age had been October 1. There is an evaluation process that must be part of the policy and Floyd County Schools will use the Kindergarten registration screener to determine a child’s readiness for school. This screener is used with all incoming Kindergarten students regardless of their birth date.
If your child is ready to enroll in Kindergarten and will be 5 years old on or before October 1, 2017, we invite you to attend Kindergarten Registration at any of our elementary schools on April 3rd and 4th from 8:300AM to 2:00PM
