    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 years of age in the month of September may be allowed to enter kindergarten based on an early entrance screening.  The Educational Enrichment Department can assist in setting up a screening at (928) 527-6156.
