I know these are questions I should be directing to my Board of Ed, but I reckon with the recent budget cuts now might not be the best time.
Our daughter misses the kindergarten enrollment birthday cut-off by 1 month and 2 days. We feel like we'd want her to be tested for early enrollment instead of making her wait another year (we're completely confident she'll be emotionally and mentally prepared for this). Do most districts even do testing for early enrollment?
If not, and if we have to send her to private school for kindergarten (ugh, I get ill just thinking about what this costs), can she start 1st grade in public school at age 5 (turning 6 that November)?
And I know it looks like I'm jumping the gun here since this is a couple years away, but if private school is our only option, we have a lot of financial discussions to have sooner rather than later.
