Effective School Year 2022-2023
Students entering kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year must meet the newly adopted age requirements for enrollment from the Nevada Department of Education. The updated statute, which will go into effect starting January 1, 2022, requires all kindergarten students to be five (5) years of age on or before the first day of school. For the 2022-2023 school year only, any student who completed Pre-Kindergarten during the 2021-2022 school year who is five (5) years of age on or before September 30, 2022, may still attend kindergarten. This Pre-Kindergarten program may have been offered at a home school, private school, or public school. For Washoe County, an Affidavit of Completion of Pre-Kindergarten is required to be completed and submitted, if your child will not be age five (5) by the first day of school but will be age five (5) before or on September 30, 2022 and had previously been in a Pre-Kindergarten program. If your child will not be age five (5) by September 30, 2022, they will not be eligible to enroll for Kindergarten for that year.
