Kindergarten Early Entry (KEE)
2020-2021 Evaluation Process Cancelled
Out an abundance of caution and our commitment to educational equity and excellence, we are canceling Kindergarten Early Entry testing for the 2020-2021 school year.
The safety of our students, families, and staff remains our highest priority at this time. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, while we did consider several scenarios, we cannot adhere to health and safety guidelines for students and staff and follow current protocols regarding Kindergarten Early Entry and the assessment practices that support the validity of assessment results.
We look forward to having your child join KSD in the fall of 2021.
Children must be five years old by August 31 to be eligible to enroll in kindergarten; however, if your child’s birth date is between September 1 and October 31, the Kent School District offers a fee-based assessment to determine if children demonstrate the advanced pre-academic, social, and emotional readiness necessary for kindergarten success in Kent.
