Information for Parent/Guardian

California law provides that after a child has been lawfully admitted to kindergarten and has attended for one year, the child shall be promoted to the first grade unless the school District and the child's parent/guardian agree to the child's continuing in kindergarten for not longer than one additional year. This rule applies whether a child begins kindergarten at the beginning of a school year or at some later date, so that a child who begins kindergarten in January, for example, shall be promoted the following January unless it is formally agreed that he/she shall continue in kindergarten. Because kindergarten-age children often do not develop at steady or predictable rates, the California Department of Education recommends that approval to continue in kindergarten not be given until near the anniversary of a child's admittance to kindergarten.
