Important Program Information
On Tuesday, January 24, 2023, the PPS Board of Education voted to modify our PPS Compulsory Enrollment; Age and Grade Level at Entrance Board Policy (4.10.020-P). This modification eliminated our previous practice of offering an Early Entry to Kindergarten exception.
Our policy now reads: "A child will be admitted to Kindergarten if their fifth birthday occurs on or before September 1." For Kindergarten registration information, visit pps.net/enroll.
Our work includes:
- Supporting the district with the development and alignment of our Pre-K to 3rd grade (P-3) programs;
- Overseeing and supporting PPS Pre-Kindergarten and Head Start programs;
- Supporting families, students, and educators into and through the transition to Kindergarten; and
- Supporting the ongoing development of high-quality Kindergarten programming.
In all of our work, we are driven by our Early Learners Department Core Values.
