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).
Are you IN? Our community says “YES!” As a result of the “Are You IN?” joint fundraising campaign by the Menlo Park-Atherton Education Foundation and the Parent-Teacher Organizations for Laurel, Encinal, Oak Knoll, and Hillview schools, the PTOs reached their membership goals. The Foundation is working toward its goal of 80% participation and filling the District’s $4 million need. There is still work to do and we need your support! Please click on the orange dot to learn how to support our schools.
This and other fascinating questions are answered on our new District History page. You can also find historical information about the estates that originally made up Menlo Park and Atherton, as well as early PTO records from 1924 through 1949 (we're still busy scanning, but there are a few years and fun pictures up).
