  • 2012 - Have to be five by Nov 1st.

    "Districts must admit children at the beginning of the school year (or whenever they move into a district) if they will be five years of age on or before December 2 for the 2010-11 school year, December 2 for the 2011-12 school year, November 1 for the 2012-13 school year, October 1 for the 2013-14 school year and September 1 for the 2014-15 school year and each school year thereafter. (EC Section 48000[a]). " From CA Dept of Edu website.

  • I think it varies from district to district. My kids need to be 5 by Aug 26th but I went to Kindergarten and didn't turn 5 until the first week of school in Sept.
    Just call whatever school you plan on enrolling in and ask.

  • It definitely varies from school to school. My oldest couldn't go to school because the cut-off was August 1st but then we moved to a new district where it was September 30th and it was only about 45 minutes away.
