Early Entrance Kindergarten Information for Parents
The Vermilion Local Schools considers a child eligible for entrance into “regular” kindergarten if s/he attains the age of five on or before September 30th of the year s/he applies for entrance. A child under the age of six (6) who is enrolled in kindergarten will be considered of compulsory school age.

By parental request a child may be tested for early admission to kindergarten if s/he will be five (5) years of age between September 30th and January 1st, inclusive, and exhibit the mental, social and emotional standards established by the Vermilion Board of Education. A checklist will be provided for the student’s physician to complete. If your child turns 5 years of age after January 1st and you believe s/he is a viable candidate for early entrance, please contact the principal at Vermilion Elementary School.

A parent may request early admission to kindergarten if the child turns five years of age after the district’s kindergarten entrance date September 30th and before January 1. The local board of education shall determine entrance through a standardized testing program.
