Kindergarten Waiver InformationTop of Page

A recently enacted Michigan Law amended the Revised School Code (MCL 380.1147), which has changed the minimum age requirement for a child enrolling in Kindergarten.  New legislation has changed the "cut-off" date.  For the 2017-2018 school year and beyond, children must be five years old by September 1, 2017.

Waiver Option

If the child is not eligible for enrollment per the guidelines specified above and will be five years old by December 1st, the child's parent or legal guardian can apply for a waiver to enroll their student in school. Waiver deadlines and other information are as follows:

When in receipt of a waiver, districts can make recommendations to the child's parent or legal guardian, as to the child's readiness for school, and whether or not the child should be enrolled early.

Regardless of a district's recommendation, the parent or legal guardian retains the sole discretion to enroll their child.

If you have additional questions and/or would like a Parent Waiver Form, please contact the Registrar.
