    Age Requirement
    Based on the District philosophy that a child is more likely to be successful when entering school at a slightly older age, the FUSD Governing Board has set the following criteria: 

    • Children must turn five on or before August 31 to enter kindergarten.


    Are there any exceptions to the cut-off date for FUSD kindergarten entrance?
    Yes. A child who will turn five in the month of September, 
    may be allowed to enter kindergarten based on an early entrance screening.
