Information for parent/guardian

California law provides that after a child has been lawfully admitted to kindergarten and has attended for a 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 retention 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 he/she is formally retained. Because kindergarten-age children often do not develop at steady or predictable rates, the California Department of Education recommends that approval to retain not be given until near the anniversary of a child's admittance to kindergarten.

I agree to the retention of my child (named above) in kindergarten until _________________ (may not be more than one year beyond anniversary).
