Have you heard of the recent changes in the Kindergarten entry cutoff date?

The Kindergarten Readiness Act (Senate Bill 1381) is a law that changes the Kindergarten entry-age in California.  The law will progressively push the cutoff to five years old by September 1st of 2014-15 and onward.The law took effect this school year (2012-2013).

The child must be five years of age on or before:

October 1 for the 2013-14 school year and
September 1 for the 2014-15 school year and each school year thereafter
