We recently had to relocate back home. We were residing in MT, now ID. We had intended to wait till the school year was over, however that did not work out. My second child was in Kindergarten in MT. It was a full day program, and he had speech therapy. MT cut of date for k, is sep 10. Idaho's is sep 1, our son's birthday is sep 8. The school is now telling us that because our son does not meet the ID cut off time, he will have to go back to preschool. WE are trying to fight this, but need some direction. This would not be a positive change for him. He has excelled in his speech and social development, and I fear that sending him back to preschool will revert his progress. as it is, their kindergarten program in ID his still partial days, so the switch from full time to partial will be difficult enough. But to put him in preschool where the hours would be two days a week 8-11.... and his therapies would be done during those times as well, so his actual class time would be very minimal. Academically he was right on track for first grade. He knows his abc's, phonics, and can read most of the required sight words for entering 1st grade... all other areas he is right on track as well.
Any advice or suggestions would be welcome!! thank you in advance.
