Kindergarten (fall 2013)
Beginning in 2012, SB1381 (Kindergarten Readiness Act) moved the kindergarten entry date up by one month per year through 2014. Children will be admitted to kindergarten if their fifth birthday falls on or before one of the following dates:
2012-13 school year - November 1
2013-14 school year - October 1
2014-15 and thereafter - September 1

Beginning in the 2014-15 school year and thereafter, the eligibility cutoff date for Kindergarten is September 1, and children entering Kindergarten must be 5 years old on or before September 1. A child registered to enter a District school for the first time who will be six on or before September 1 will be enrolled in First grade. On a case-by-case basis, a school administrator may recommend a different placement for children who are developmentally advanced or delayed than the normal age cutoff (Click here for more information on this process). During the transitional years of 2012-13 and 2013-14, MPCSD is offering a two-year Kindergarten program for children with fall birthdays who would previously have been eligible to begin Kindergarten under the pre-SB1381 age cutoff dates (Click here for more information about the transitional program).
Spanish Immersion Program
The District’s Spanish Immersion Program is also accepting applications from students who are eligible to begin kindergarten in the 2013-14 school year. The goal of this unique program is to provide an opportunity for children to develop bilingual proficiency and academic achievement in Spanish and English. Acceptance into the Immersion program will be determined by lottery.
